To reduce your risk of cancer, check these Cancer-Fighting Superfoods
Here are 5 Cancer-Fighting Superfoods
All berries have cancer-fighting phytonutrients, but black raspberries, in particular, contain very high concentrations of phytochemicals called anthocyanins, which slow down the growth of premalignant cells and keep new blood vessels from forming (and potentially feeding a cancerous tumor). Helps fight colon, esophageal, oral, and skin cancers.
Tomatoes are best dietary source of lycopene, a carotenoid that gives tomatoes their red hue. Lycopene was found to stop endometrial cancer cell growth in a study in Nutrition and Cancer. Endometrial cancer causes nearly 8,000 deaths a year. Helps fight endometrial, lung, prostate, and stomach cancers.
Walnuts’ phytosterols (cholesterol-like molecules found in plants) have been shown to block estrogen receptors in breast cancer cells, possibly slowing the cells’ growth. Helps fight breast and prostate cancers.
Phytochemicals in garlic have been found to halt the formation of nitrosamines, carcinogens formed in the stomach (and in the intestines, in certain conditions) when you consume nitrates, a common food preservative. Helps fight breast, colon, esophageal, and stomach cancers.
A study out of Michigan State University found black and navy beans to significantly reduce colon cancer incidence in rats, in part because a diet rich in the legumes increased levels of the fatty acid butyrate, which in high concentrations has protective effects against cancer growth. Helps fight breast and colon cancers.
