Despite what you might have heard in the mainstream media, there really is no such thing as a cancer cell that cannot be defeated. The main difference between cancers that continue to grow in the body and those that don’t is what we put inside our bodies to stop their growth and destroy these mutant cells.


When given a proper diet, the human immune system can naturally fight off cancer cells. Certain proteins in the body can be made ineffective if these cells have uncontrolled growth because of damage or mutations to our DNA through toxins, a poor food diet, and chemical pollutants which override or derail the body’s natural immune system.

The journal Science Translation Medicine published a study in which researchers identified a molecule, called TlC10, which was shown to activate a protein that helps to fight disease and destroy cancer cells. This protein, called tumor necrosis factor related apoptosis inducing ligand, or TRAIL for short, can cross the blood-brain barrier.

This means that while chemotherapy is stopped from passing the blood-brain barrier because the body is smart enough to know that this is not good for the brain, TRAIL proteins are allowed to pass through to provide their beneficial effects.

Basically it comes down to eating a healthy, natural diet to prevent cancer. Some foods are superstars when it comes to improving the immune system and fighting cancer cells naturally.

To prevent cancer from ever getting a foothold in your body, read on about the top 12 super effective foods that fight cancer and destroy its cells.

Cherries contain a powerful compound called perillyl alcohol, or POH, which has been found in both in vitro and in vivo studies to destroy a wide variety of cancer cells. Cherries can be one of the most contaminated fruits when it comes to pesticides, so always choose the organic variety.
