Beat Cancer With Diet

Diet is now considered a major factor in the prevention and treatment of cancer. According to the American National Cancer Institute about one-third of the cancers are linked to diet. Thus, right choices of foods can help prevent a majority of new cancer cases and deaths from cancer.

Generally plants, fruits and spices with a strong colour or a strong taste have cancer preventing effects because of the contents of bioflavonoid and other anti-oxidants.

Eat fish at least every second day. Also eat seafood and fouls.

Do not eat very much red meat.

Eat 5 fruits or vegetables each day. Each piece should be of the size of an apple or carrot. They should be raw or carefully boiled so that the nutrients are not washed out.

Eat full corn bread, full corn cereals, peas, beans and potatoes.

Beta-carotene and vitamin A supplements may increase the chance for heavy smokers of getting lung cancer and other cancers caused by smoking, according to results from epidemiologic studies.

Eating fish, and especially fat fish, some times each week also have a protecting effect against prostate cancer.

Whole grain and bread made of whole grain will help prevent colon cancer because of the fibre content and possibly also because of the vitamins and minerals contained.

Eat just a moderate amount of fat.

Broccoli, cabbage, mustard, kale, and cauliflower are vegetables with proven strong cancer preventing effects, probably due to the content of indole-3-carbinole.

Red peppers give a protecting effect against prostate cancer.

Drinking coffee reduces the incidence of cancer, but others studies have thrown doubt upon these results.

Use just a very moderate amount of fat sources like butter, coconut oil and palm oil. A high consumption of these fat sources gives you too much saturated fat.

Avoid altogether fat that has been chemically altered, giving so-called trans-fat. This type of fat is often found in margarine, cookies, snacks, fast food and other pre-made food.

Consume just a very moderate amount of sugar, refined flour or refined cereals.

Consume just a moderate consumption of tranquilizers and stimulants like alcohol and caffeine.
Use just a moderate amount of salt in the food. However, in warm weather and by hard physical work, you will need more salt
