Cancer; the most harmful disease till found in medical history that mostly is considered as incurable and has devastating effects on human physical as well as mental health but most of are ignorant of the fact that it’s effects can be counter effected by adding some organic foods in our regular diet.
In this technological and revolutionary era a major advancement in western health care, pharmaceutical and cancer industries has occurred and individuals are trying to research and analyze the foods, nutrients and drugs that can help them to cure the diseases. Questions are being asked and nature’s beautiful cures are being rediscovered.
Here is the list of organic foods that can help you to fight cancer
Broccoli is the only one crucifer with a sizable amount of sulforaphane, a particularly potent compound that boosts the body’s protective enzymes and flushes out cancer-causing chemicals, says Jed Fahey, ScD. A recent study of University of Michigan on mice found that sulforaphane also targets cancer stem cells—those that aid in tumor growth.
Helps fight: breast, liver, lung, prostate, skin, stomach, and bladder cancers
All type of berries are packed with cancer-fighting phytonutrients but black raspberries, in particular, contain very high level of phytochemicals called anthocyanins, which slow down the growth of premalignant cells and keep new blood vessels from forming (and potentially feeding a cancerous tumor), according to Gary D. Stoner, PhD, a professor of internal medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
Helps fight: colon, esophageal, oral, and skin cancers
This fruit is the best possible source of lycopene that is found to stop endometrial cancer cell growth in a study in Nutrition and Cancer center. Endometrial cancer is considered very deadly as it causes nearly 8,000 deaths a year.
Helps fight: endometrial, lung, prostate, and stomach cancers
Nuts, their phytosterols (cholesterol-like molecules found in plants) have been shown to block estrogen receptors in breast cancer cells, possibly slowing the cells’ growth, says Elaine Hardman, PhD, associate professor at Marshall University School of Medicine in Huntington, West Virginia.
Helps fight: breast and prostate cancers
Phytochemicals in garlic have been found to stop the formation of nitrosamines, carcinogens formed in the stomach and in the intestines when a person consumes nitrates, a common food stabilizer. Women’s Health Study found that women with the highest amounts of garlic in their diets had a 50 percent lower risk of certain colon cancers than women who ate the least.
Helps fight: breast, colon, esophageal, and stomach cancers
Beans contain butyrate which in high concentrations has protective effects against cancer growth. Study held out at Michigan State University found that black and navy beans significantly reduced colon cancer incidence in rats, in part because a diet rich in the legumes increased levels of the fatty acid butyrate. Another study, in the journal Crop Science, found dried beans particularly effective in preventing breast cancer in rats.
Helps fight: breast and colon cancers
Some precautions for Cancer victims:
Meat, cheese, and butter can be rich in saturated fat, which has been linked to obesity—a big cancer predictor. Try avoiding this highly saturated stuff and make protein rich and organic foods a regular portion of your diet.
