3. Alkaline Foods

Too many Americans eat diets that are high in acid-forming foods. Mounting research studies show that cancer cannot thrive in an acidic environment. Cancerous tumors love to grow in an acidic environment. Your blood should be kept at a slightly alkaline level, between 7.2 and 7.4. To do this, you need to eat more alkaline foods. This is another terrific way to prevent cancer from ever starting. The ideal cancer prevention diet should include about 80 percent alkaline forming foods. There are many natural foods that will keep your body slightly alkaline, such as the following:

  • Fruits: lemons, melons, bananas, berries, olives, mangos, limes, kiwis, grapefruit, apples, nectarines, peaches, pears, pineapples, raisins, watermelon, figs, and avocados
  • Veggies: yams, cauliflower, onions, potatoes, spinach, bell peppers, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, celery, corn, ginger, kale, mustard greens, and tomatoes
  • Beans/legumes: chestnuts, chickpeas, peas, soybeans, almonds, lima beans, and green beans
  • Green foods: wheatgrass, chlorella, spirulina, barley grass, and alfalfa

Of course, this list is not complete, but it should help you get started when you are grocery shopping and trying to decide which foods are best for eating a more alkaline based diet.
