2. Dark Green Leafy Veggies

Studies have shown that breast cancer cannot survive where the antioxidants zeaxanthin and lutein are found in high amounts. You can get these vital, cancer killing antioxidants in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale. Although organic vegetables are, no doubt, expensive, these are still a real bargain, especially when you buy them in season. You can also cut costs by picking up these veggies at your local farmers’ market, or try growing them yourself at home. Many of these veggies can be grown in pots, so no matter how limited your space is you can always grow a pot or two of spinach or romaine lettuce.

Free radicals actually damage our DNA, mutating the cells. Mutated cells can turn to cancerous cells. The most powerful antioxidant in green tea is known as EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate). This potent and unique antioxidant has been studied extensively and is known to fight disease. The only thing about green tea is that most of the stuff people drink, the tea sold in bottles or even the tea bags from that well-known brand with the captain on the label, is junk. Seriously. Junk. Bottled tea has been processed and heated until all the healthy things you are drinking it for have been destroyed.

Green tea is best purchased from Japanese companies with established reputations.
