(Before It's News)

According to some cancer researchers, during the course of a human lifetime the life-threatening disease crops up in people at least several times. The people never suspect that some cells have mutated into cancer because their immune system quickly identifies the malignancy and destroys the mutated cells. Why do some people die from terminal cancer, while others live past 100? Why does the deadly disease never taking root in their body? Certainly, genetics plays a significant role. Environment and stress also are factors. But diet, what’s in it and what’s missing, also plays a crucial role. Certain foods and additives can increase the likelihood of contracting cancer while other foods act as powerful anti-carcinogenics. Five such foods are the focus of this article. Intensive study has revealed these foods dramatically lower your risk and may cut the probablities of getting cancer in half.

1. Hot peppers

Peppers, especially the hotter varieties have been recommended by Eastern mystics for many centuries. They claimed the medicinal properties of hot peppers were as effective as some of the best herbs. Especially helpful for combatting any wasting disease. Today, modern medicine calls wasting disease cancer.

Deciding to investigate the efficacy of hot peppers as cancer-fighting foods, nutritional researcher Dan Dou sought studied the extracts of ten common types of peppers. According to themedicinalpepper.com, the peppers Dou chose “were prepared and assayed for tumor angiogenesis and apoptosis. To his surprise, Dou found “that both fresh and dried pepper extracts were highly effective in killing cancer cells and inhibiting cell proliferation…” [Hot Peppers Vs. CancerTumor cell inhibition with hot pepper extracts]

The key seems to be the amount of capsaicin (a substance that makes a hot pepper hot) in the pepper.

2. Garlic

Numerous studies have proven that the ancient Asian Masters’ claims about the healing magic of garlic are true. Garlic fights disease in general, is a natural antibiotic, and a powerful anti-cancer food.

How garlic is handled, however, is critical to getting the anticarcinogenic compounds into your body. Heating garlic in the microwave or roasting it in the oven van destroy its cancer-fighting qualities.

Penn State researchers discovered this surprising fact and reveal how to eat garlic to obtain its greatest benefits. Sciencedaily.com reports on the research presented at a conference held in Newport beach, California.

A major scientific study was done almost a decade ago that first revealed the deleterious effect heat can have on garlic in the paper, “The Influence of Heating on the Anticancer Properties of Garlic.”

3. Broccoli

The May 1st 2010 issue of Clinical Cancer Research, published a stunning new study that confirmed broccoli’s incredible healing properties. Zeroing in on the vegetable’s ability to fight cancer was mostly due to a compound called sulforaphane.

A team of cancer researchers at the University of Michigan conducted the study that found sulphoraphane attacked cancer stem cells.

Speaking about the remarkable results, Duxin Sun, an associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the U-M College of Pharmacy, said: “Sulforaphane has been studied previously for its effects on cancer, but this study shows that its benefit is in inhibiting the breast cancer stem cells. This new insight suggests the potential of sulforaphane or broccoli extract to prevent or treat cancer by targeting the critical cancer stem cells.”

Other studies support the findings and one went farther, finding that eating broccoli with mustard, Japanese wasabi (horseradish), or just simple radishes significantly boosts broccoli’s canver-fighting properties.

Elizabeth H. Jeffery, a professor of nutrition at the University of Illinois, spoke about the discovery with the Daily Express: “Broccoli, prepared correctly, is an extremely potent cancer-fighting agent. Three to five servings a week are enough to have an effect.”

The sulforaphane, taken with an enzyme called myrosinase boosts the vegetable’s cancer-killing ability. The more myrosinase, the greater the vegetable’s disease-preventing power.

While young broccoli sprouts have large quantities of myrosinase present, eating the plant with mustard or radishes supercharges the sulforaphane.

Broccoli’s powerful array of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory agents protect against many cancers other than prostrate cancer. It also fights against cancer developing in the skin, bowels, and breasts.

4. Pomegranates

Pomegranates have long been touted as having special health benefits, among them the powerful boost the fruit can provide to the libido.

Recently, researchers at a California university discovered another amazing benefit of the cranberry-colored fruit: the juice contains chemical components that tends to paralyze cancer cells as they form and reduce the cells’ ability to spread. The reserach revealed that the juice is especially beneficial fighting prostate cancer.

Sciencedaily.com reviews the medical evidence that supports what the ancient Indian masters of wellness knew thousands of years in the past.

5. Green tea

The remarkable benefits of green tea were first discovered by Chinese health practitioners about 5,000 years ago.

Proving those ancient Chinese physicians right, researchers at New Castle University conducted a study that revealed green tea does fight many chronic illnesses, among them severe forms of dementia and many types of cancer. The study appears in the journal Phytomedicine.

Discussing the important findings, lead investigator Dr. Ed Okello of New Castle told the Daily Mail that “What was really exciting was that we found when green tea is digested, the resulting chemicals are actually more effective against key triggers of Alzheimer’s, [and] the digested compounds also had anti-cancer properties, significantly slowing down the growth of tumor cells which we were using in our experiments.”

Okello thinks everyone should add green tea to their diets.”Green tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and what we have here provides the scientific evidence why it may be effective against some of the key diseases we face today. [And while] there are obviously many factors which together have an influence on diseases such as cancer and dementia—a good diet, plenty of exercise and a healthy lifestyle are all important—I think it’s fair to say that at least one cup of green tea a day may be good for you and I would certainly recommend it.”

These five foods can help you stave off many diseases including one of the world’s worst killers: cancer. Many of these superfoods were known to the Masters of India and Asia as healing foods long, long ago.

      Don’t be so gullible! There are no reputable sources cited, only claims. Sure, these foods are healthy but I promise you, they will do nothing against cancer. Most of this article is unscientific woo, long since debunked.

        :idea: GW Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1998 and listed on AIM, a market of the London Stock Exchange, in June 2001. GW is licensed by the UK Home Office to work with a range of controlled drugs for medical research purposes. The Group’s lead programme is the development of a product portfolio of cannabinoid prescription medicines, including Sativex® Oromucosal Spray, to meet patient needs in a wide range of therapeutic indications…

        ABOUT CANNABIDIOL (and us) :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea:

        Cannabidiol —CBD— is a compound in Cannabis that has medical effects but does not make people feel “stoned” and actually counters some of the effects of THC. After decades in which only high-THC Cannabis was available, CBD-rich strains are now being grown by and for medical users.
        The reduced psychoactivity of CBD-rich Cannabis may make it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety and/or anti-spasm effects without disconcerting euphoria or lethargy.
        Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including: rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, PTSD, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections and neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anti-cancer potential is currently being explored at several academic research centers in the U.S. and other countries.
        The Story to Date
        In the spring of 1998, the British government licensed a company called GW Pharmaceuticals to grow Cannabis and develop a precisely consistent plant extract for use in clinical trials. GW’s co-founder Geoffrey Guy, MD, was convinced —and had convinced the Home Office— that by using CBD-rich plants, GW could produce a Cannabis-based medicine with little or no psychoactive effect. That summer Guy described his approach at a meetingof the International Cannabinoid Research Society. In addition to countering the psychoactivity of THC, Guy said, CBD conferred benefits of its own. Queen Victoria had used CBD-rich Cannabis for menstrual cramps. Indeed, animal studies suggest that CBD lessened anxiety and reduced the severity and frequency of seizures.
        It was assumed that generations of breeding for maximum THC had reduced CBD in California cannabis to trace levels. GW had gotten its CBD-rich strains by acquiring the genetic library of HortaPharm, a Dutch seed company run by American ex-pat naturalists, David Watson and Robert Clarke. Tod Mikuriya, MD, founder of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, expressed hope that “our Burbanks in the hills” would have preserved or could develop CBD-rich strains if and when an analytic test lab began serving the medical Cannabis industry.
        As the years went by, more and more promising studies involving CBD were described at meetings of the ICRS, the International Association for Cannabinoid Medicine, and Patients Out of Time. California doctors kept abreast of the research and O’Shaughnessy’s reported on it, but we were merely observers, not participants —until the fall of 2008, when Oakland’s Steep Hill Laboratory began testing samples provided by Harborside Health Center.
        Approximately one in 750 samples of Cannabis being grown for medical use is turning out to be CBD-rich. (For data collection purposes, “CBD-rich” has been defined as 4% or more by dry weight.) Doctors and patients now have a unique opportunity to evaluate its effects.

        I have been a cigarette smoker for 40 years. I have eaten these foods regularly all my life, not a trace of cancer. I’ve had 2 colds in 8 years. The accepted ideas of disease their causes and treatments are seriously flawed.

      • whitebear

        you obviously work within the medical community that desires to keep people sick so you can continue making money

    old news regurgitated over and over. The claims for these foods have not been validated.
