Top 6 Foods To Combat The Big “C”

Worried you're at risk for cancer?

If so, a great place to start is your diet plan.

By eating the right foods, you can help combat oxidative and free radical damage that could increase your risk of cancer.

While food may not cure cancer, you can definitely put up a good defense by making wise meal choices. Let’s look at 6 foods in particular that are great for combating cancer.

1. Garlic

Garlic is a delicious addition to many meals and has powerful cancer-fighting properties. Those who eat garlic on a regular basis tend to show lower levels of cancer in the digestive track including the esophagus, stomach, and colon.

Additionally, consuming garlic regularly appears to lower LDL levels by around 10-15%.

For best results, let garlic stand for 10 minutes after chopping before you add it to your cooking.

Sauté garlic with a little olive oil before creating a stir-fry for bolder flavor.

2. Berries

Of all the fruits to eat, berries top the list. Not only are they low in sugar content, but they are rich in antioxidants that help combat free radical damage.

Whether you choose blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries – all will help give your health a boost.

Add these to your diet by tossing in a few frozen berries each time you prepare a protein smoothie.

3. Tomatoes

You won't get cancer fighting benefits from eating ketchup but if you include raw, fresh tomatoes, you’ll be reaping rewards.

Tomatoes are especially great for men as they tend to help combat Prostate Cancer. This is thanks to their high lycopene content.

Try slicing a tomato up and serving it on your next sandwich.

4. Broccoli

One could argue that any vegetable will help combat cancer simply through helping you control your body weight.  Broccoli, however, offers extra powerful benefits.

This cruciferous vegetable contains a large dose of sulforaphane, which helps to improve the body’s level of certain protective enzymes that reduce the effect of cancer causing molecules in the body.

Try dicing broccoli up and serving it mixed with some

  • mandarin oranges
  • sunflower seeds
  • diced red onion
  • slivered almonds

Add a dressing made with equal parts plain Greek yogurt, white vinegar, and honey for a delicious salad you can serve any day of the week.

5. Walnuts

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts are great for helping for your health.

Not only will the omega-3’s help lower your risk factor for cancer, but they also contain phytosterols that may help block estrogen receptors in Breast Cancer cells, reducing the risk of development.

So for women, walnuts are a must. Sprinkle some over a bowl of hot oatmeal.

6. Beans

Finally, consider swapping out your pasta in your dinner meal for some beans instead. Eating beans regularly can increase the level of butyrate in your body, which is a fatty acid that can help to prevent cancer cell growth.

Beans are also high in dietary fiber, so they can also help lower your risk factor for Colon Cancer as well.

So keep these foods in mind and make sure they are included in your diet plan. If you want to combat cancer, they’ll go to work for you.
