Are you aware that some of the foods have proven cancer-fighting properties? Some work even before the cancer starts, while others may help fight cancer once it starts (not that you should only treat cancer with food!) Cancer has dozens of different causes from radiation to viruses. The general mechanism of cancer, though, is that the normal cells in your body or organ begin to divide without stopping and form a tumor.
Tumors can be either benign (non-cancerous), or cancerous. Then the cancerous tumor can metastasise. This means cancerous cells split off and float around in search of a new part of the body to settle in.
Find out these seven foods which can help you fight cancer.
- Broccoli (Cruciferous Vegetables).
Cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, sprouts from Brussels, turnips, etc.) have many health benefits. They are rich in minerals, carotenoids, and vitamin C, E, B9, and K. They can reduce the risk of heart-related conditions.
Broccoli especially contains sulforaphane. This compound has shown great potential in the laboratory to reduce the size of cancer cells in the breast and prostate, and is associated with reduction in colorectal and colon cancer.
To the maximum benefit eat it raw or steamed.
