Top Cancer Fighting Foods

Find out what 7 things in your diet you should change to help prevent cancer.

  1. Increase antixodiants
    Of all the dietary factors, increasing your intake of fruit and vegetables provides the greatest protection from cancer – and certain foods are especially protective – including carrots and tomatoes. Generally speaking where you find the most colour and flavour in a fruit or vegetables (such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries) you will also find the highest anti-oxidant levels. Eat seven or more servings a day of fruit and vegetables – organic where possible.
  2. Love your liver
    You need to eat liver friendly foods so your liver can efficiently detoxify harmful chemicals. Liver friendly foods include onions, garlic, artichokes, watercress and rocket. Also include cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, radish and mustard. Turmeric has also been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer.
  3. Boost your immune system
    Ensure you get enough sleep and natural sunlight and eat vitamin rich food including whole grains and fruit and vegetables. Mushrooms are powerful immune-boosters: reishi, shiitake and maitake have all been shown to have anti-cancer effects.
  4. Stock up on salvestrols
    Salvestrols are compounds found in plants that target cancer cells and kill them. They are rich in a wide range of fruit and vegetables although their potency varies depending on how and where they are grown. See my Special Report Salvestrols – A Major Breakthrough in Cancer Prevention.
  5. Lower inflammation
    Cut down on saturated fats from meat and dairy and increase omega-3 fats – the best sources are salmon, mackerel, herring, kippers, sardines and anchovies. Vegetarian sources include seeds and nuts.
  6. Go organic
    To minimize your exposure to herbicides and pesticides eat organic foods and avoid processed meats and burned or browned food. Eat more raw foods and steam fry or boil food, rather than using high-heat cooking.
  7. Fill up on fish
    Get most of your protein from fish and vegetable sources and keep your intake of dairy products and meat low. See my blog about the High Protein Cancer Link for more information.
