10 Foods With Real Cancer-Fighting Powers

When cancer rears its ugly head, fight back with nutrition and healthy living.

“One of the most basic and most powerful ways to reduce the risk of cancer is through diet and lifestyle,” says Laura Kraber, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who works with Dr. Frank Lipman.

The American Institute for Cancer Research, suggest the following food options:

Leafy Greens

Spinach, kale, collard greens, and more contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Their inherent carotenoids help stunt some breast and skin cancer cells.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, turnips and more, bolster B vitamins and magnesium in the body. Their polyphenols in broccoli, cabbage, turnips and such help slow the growth of cancer cells.

Turmeric

The active substance in turmeric, curcumin, decreases inflammation and assists the body’s destruction of mutated cells.

Ginger

Whole ginger extract can is believed to inhibit and impair cancer reproduction.

Reishi Mushroom

This food’s ability can head off cancer cell growth, arrest tumor development, and prevent cancer from metastasizing. Reishi mushrooms also foster immune strength and response to late stage cancer.

Fermented Foods

To maintain your digestive tract health, ingest as many probiotics foods as possible. The fermentation process introduces beneficial microflora into the gut, and positively impacts metabolism and diseases like cancer.

Allium

Foods in this category include garlic, onions, and chives, among others. The more you eat, the better. These food types are shown to slow or stop cancerous tumours in the prostate, bladder, colon, skin and lungs. Leukemia is also positively affected.

Flaxseed

Inflammation is eased significantly by flaxseed. Omega-3 fat, alpha-linolenic acid, thiamin, and fiber are all beneficial, key components.

Grapes

Resveratrol is an extremely effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory component found in grape skin. Cancer and tumor growth has been inhibited and arrested in a wealth of cancer types, when resveratrol is increased.

Soy

Studies show that soy, despite reports to the contrary, doesn’t increase the chance of developing cancer. Soy can actually prevent it.

Keep in mind, a healthy diet helps immensely, but cancer is not to be taken lightly. Consult a doctor to help fight the disease, if the time comes.
