5 foods to prevent cancer!
1) Berries (esp. black raspberries):
Berries are full of cancer-fighting phytonutrients. Black raspberries have high concentration of anthocyanins which helps in preventing cancer by slowing down the growth of premalignant cells.
2) Cruciferous vegetables (esp. broccoli):
Cruciferous veg. like kale, cabbage, cauliflower etc have cancer fighting properties. Broccoli has a considerable amount of sulforaphane, which flushes out cancer causing chemicals.
Garlic has been found to check the formation of carcinogens formed in the stomach due to consumption of nitrate. It lowers the risk of cancer.
Tomato is the best source of lycopene, a carotenoid that stops the growth of endometrical cancer cells. The heating of tomatoes increases the amount of lycopene which our body can absorb. So, don’t forget to include tomato in your diet.
Walnut has been found to block oestrogen receptors in breast cancer cells. Needless to say, we ladies, can’t afford to avoid eating them.
