Foods That Prevent Cancer

Posted May 02 2008 5:01pm
I ran across a great article today that gives you some recommendations regarding the foods to eat and the foods to avoid in the fight against cancer.

In a nutshell, some of the best cancer-fighters are:
  1. Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, kale)
  2. Foods that contain folate such as liver, spinach, beans, broccoli, oranges, lettuce, avocado, and asparagus
  3. Onions, chives, leeks and garlic
  4. Carrots
  5. Certain types of mushrooms such as Shitake, maitake, and reishi
  6. Fruits, including grapefruits, papayas, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries
  7. Tomatoes
  8. Selenium, a mineral found in brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and fish

Now for the bad guys:

  1. Processed meat such as bacon, sausages, salami, ham and corned beef
  2. Foods processed with salt (or salty foods), such as some breakfast cereals and breads
  3. Sugary drinks and high calorie foods that can lead to obesity and therefore cancer

Reduce your risk of cancer by:

  1. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables
  2. Drinking lots of pure water and other healthy liquids like green tea
  3. Starting as early as possible
  4. Taking good quality food supplements because the vitamins and minerals found in our food has dramatically decreased since the 1930's and 40's.

Check out the article at MSN for more detailed information. It is definitely worth the read.

Have a great weekend!
