Cancer preventing Superfoods

Any antioxidant rich food will protect you from getting cancer. Top antioxidant foods are:

  • Beans (Small Red Bean, Pinto, Red Kidney)
  • Blueberry, Raspberry, Blackberry, Strawberry (in that order)
  • Artichoke
  • Cranberry, Sweet cherry
  • Prunes and plums
  • Apples
  • Pecan

Any vitamin E rich food will protect you from stomach, colon, lung, liver, and other cancers. Add vitamin E-rich foods like almonds, cooked spinach and sunflower seeds to your diet; they’ll help keep your cell-defense system strong.

Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant. A diet high in beta-carotene (meaning orange colored food and leafy greens) implies a reduced risk of cancer, particularly of the stomach, lung and colon.

Low vitamin D levels have been linked to several types of cancer, including breast and colon. Scientists say that vitamin D may help block the growth of blood vessels that feed growing tumors and help stop the growth and spread of cancerous and precancerous cells. Eat plenty of vitamin D-rich foods, such as wild salmon, and choose vitamin D-fortified dairy products, yogurt for example. The only supplement I take is Vitamin D, all others vitamin and mineral needs are provided by superfoods diet. There is just not enough vitamin D in_food and that is the only supplement I recommend. Some people want to boost their antioxidants intake and therefore take some additional supplements (Acai berry) which is fine.

Omega-3 fatty acids may prevent cancer by inhibiting cancer cell propagation and disrupt steps that are critical to cancer growth. Omega-3 fatty acids also help decrease inflammations and cellular mutations.
