Being diagnosed with cancer is one of the worst things that can happen to anyone. Most people don’t know what do after they’ve been diagnosed with this deadly disease. Well, changing diet is one of the first things you should do.
Research shows that there are foods that naturally prevent growth of cancer. Before I show you these 7 foods, let’s look into how they help fight cancer.
How these foods fight cancer
Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels. These new blood vessels give the tumor the oxygen and nutrients it needs to grow and spread in the body, research says.
The foods I’m about to show you hinder the angiogenesis process, thus preventing formation of new blood vessels and tumor growth. Researchers say that this can starve the tumor or even stop cancer.
Here are the 7 foods you should eat to fight cancer.
You can benefit from eating tomatoes because they contain lycopene (pigment that gives them the red color). This study found there was a 23 percent lower risk of cancer for people who ate 2 serving of tomato sauce a week.
Curry has shown cancer-fighting effects 24 hours after consumption. It has molecules that kill bowel and esophagus cancer cells, research shows. Cook with it or take it as a supplement.
One study found that eating one and half cup of blueberries a day can lower risk of cancer by 57 percent. This is because they have a strong antioxidant called pterostilbene.
Turmeric has been proven to fight different types of cancer including skin, stomach, liver, and breast cancer. Research shows that consuming 4 grams of turmeric a day can lower risk of cancer by 40 percent.
Cacao contains an antioxidant called flavanol that prevents damages of cells. This can actually prevent cancer because it grows from damaged cells. Add it in smoothies or baked foods.
These supplements prevent angiogenesis. Make sure you see a doctor to get proper dosage instructions.
Studies show that drinking 2 to 3 cups of green tea a day reduce invasion of tumor cells by 50 percent.
