Top foods to help fight Cancer =
“” Many have said, “Eat plenty of vegetables.” Maybe what should’ve been said is, “Eat plenty of berries!”
Do you know that fruit, particularly berries, collectively rank quite a lot higher in overall antioxidant capacity than most vegetables, even spinach and broccoli? Not very long ago, scientists published articles with newly updated results on over 100 foods – rating the foods on “hydrophilic Oxygen-Radical Absorbance Capacity.”
Free radicals are unstable oxygen atoms (plus, sometimes nitrogen atoms) that, if not rendered neutral by antioxidant compounds, have great potential to damage DNA- which are the building blocks of life (ofcourse) … and, this damage is a precursor to possible cancer development later on, as well as crippling heart disease.
According to the previously mentioned report, which was 4 the USDA’s National Food & Nutrient Analysis Program, the top 10 foods, according to overall antioxidant capacity, are as follows:
raw Raab broccoli, blackberries, raspberries, wild blueberries, cultivated blueberries, cooked artichoke, strawberries, red cooked cabbage, black plums,
and red delicious apples.
However, the most potent anti-cancer (cancer fighting) compounds don’t necessarily show up in the greatest volume in these 10 foods. For example, lycopene from cooked tomato product has been linked to reduced prostate cancer risk, but cooked tomatoes rank # 43 in the report. Spinach comes in at # 38. Don’t let those numbers trick you, however, because spinach-along with all cruciferous vegetables-contain a very serious cancer-tromping compound called indole-3 carbinol, which has inhibited tumor growth in laboratory studies.
Also keep in mind that the report did not include other foods that have powerful anti-cancer properties, such as green tea. Thus, as far as lowering cancer risk, the top 10 foods/beverages that I recommend are (in no particular order):
1. Green tea
2. Acai berry juice
3. Pomegranate juice
4. Any kind of whole berries
5. Broccoli or cabbage
6. Spinach/kale/collard greens
8. Cooked tomato product
9. Wheatgrass and barley grass in powder form, mixed with water
10. Dark chocolate
