The idea of getting cancer is flat-out frightening for most of us and statistically, almost all of us will either get cancer or know someone close who does.
This is why we need to be proactive in lowering the chances of that happening as much as possible without going to the extreme and locking ourselves in a bomb shelter and hoping for the best. And right now approximately 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer. Numbers don’t lie and these numbers suggest we think more about this.
And right now approximately 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer (these stats are consistent with most other developed countries around the world). The numbers don’t lie and these numbers suggest that we need to pay more attention.
We did our research and have found the eight best foods to eat to prevent and arrest cancer. Go stock your shelves!
Some studies say drink 2 cups of coffee, while others say drink 5 cups to lower your chances of getting breast cancer. Some experts say the reason coffee offers this protection is that it has anti-cancerous compounds, while others claim it’s the antioxidants that run interference.
What seems fairly consistent here is that drinking coffee helps. The main thing here is that you buy only organic coffee because it would be counterproductive to drink pesticide-soaked coffee products when attempting to use that food for cancer prevention.
The sulforaphane in this food loves to target and kill breast cancer cells. That’s just the beginning, Trygve Tollefsbol, Ph.D., D.O. believes that the combination of broccoli sprouts and green tea not only offer protection but can also reconstruct unresponsive breast tumors into a different kind of tumor that will actually respond to treatment.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, says that eating fiber-rich foods may help lower your risk of breast cancer—and as you eat more fiber, the more your risk decreases.
The omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid and phytosterols endow walnuts with some serious cancer-fighting power. Just be careful not to eat too much of this food because it’s loaded with calories.
According to a study in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, the omega-3 fats in fish oil lower the inflammation in your body, which helps create an anti-cancer environment in the body. It is recommended to eat about 8 ounces of oily fish a week. We recommend that you avoid farm raised.
The antioxidants and oleic acid are shown to inhibit cancer-cell growth.
University of Missouri scientists discovered that there’s a compound in this herb of special interest called apigenin and they concluded parsley can slow down and extinguish the growth of cancer.
The seeds of this delicious fruit have a potent antioxidant in them called ellagic acid. You don’t have to eat just the seeds to get the benefits, you can still get these antioxidants if you drink 1 cup of organic pomegranate juice (not from concentrate) daily.
