Beat Cancer Diet..What Are The Most Effective Foods?
The Ultimate Beat Cancer Diet..Part 1
We are all aware that fruit and veggies are known to help inhibit the growth of tumours, but so can treats such as wine and chocolate. So let's discuss this in part 1 of our exclusive Beat Cancer Diet....
Raspberries and strawberries contain a compound called
This is believed to slow tumour growth and assist the body in detoxifying potential cancer-causing substances. Antioxidants in cranberries, blackberries and blueberries could help to prevent the binding of carcinogens..that is the cancer-causing properties..to DNA, ultimately protecting cancers of a gastrointestinal nature.
Eat beans, and plenty of them. Also called legumes, they are rich in fiber, but also may contain compounds that are similar to a weak form of oestrogen, believed to protect against breast and prostate cancer.
Beans are also rich in certain plant chemicals known as saponins, protease inhibitors and phytic acid, and they are belived to play an important role in the prevention of cancer too.
Here is a fact..Japanese mushroom growers are nearly fifty per cent less likely to develop cancer of the stomach compared to their non-farming neighbours.
The reason for this is probably due to the fact that they eat their own produce and reap the health benefits from the nutrients that are said to protect from cancer. Or is it just coincidence maybe? I don't think so.
The shitake mushroom is a very rich source of a certain molecule, called lenitinan, that is believed to stimulate our immune system which in turn can slow or even halt tumour growth completely.
Even our regular button mushrooms are thought to help protect against certain cancers, including breast, because they contain substances that can block the production of oestrogen in the body.
Whatever form you decide to eat your tomatoes in, whether it be fresh, in a can, processed (ketchup), in soup or even juiced, it really doesn't matter..they all contain a powerful antioxidant nutrient called lycopene, which is responsible for its rich red color.
Studies have shown that this nutrient may protect against lung, breast and prostate cancer. Cooking the tomatoes will release more lycopene than uncooked.
Eating oily fish, two or three times a week is very good for your health. So what are the best oily fish to eat?
Salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, pilchards, trout and anchovies. These fish are rich in 2 types of omega 3 fatty acids called docosahexaenoic (DPA) and eicosapentaenoic (EPA). These are vital to your health and believed to have anti-cancer properties..just don't try to pronounce them!
Are You Nuts?
You will be if you don't eat them regularly! Nuts, seeds and any butters that are made up from them contain high levels of antioxidants, especially
and beta carotene.
Elagic acid, found in pecans and hazlenuts, is believed to also slow the growth of tumours.
What a great way to fight cancer. How is that possible? Well, dark chocolate, that is more than 70 percent
contains something called procyanidim which is an antioxidant compound. The best way to get this into your bloodstream is by consuming (dark) chocolate drinks.
Drink Hot Chocolate
Scientists have done numerous studies into the link between cancer and cocoa, and although still at the early stages of research, they have spotted that these antioxidant molecules slow the development of breast cancer (in lab cell cultures), and also prostate cancer in experimental rats.
Did you know that wine can be effective in fighting cancer by reducing tumours? Well, it's true, so to find out more...
