This means that eating plenty of vegetables, such as big salads filled with raw vegetables and spiced up with some of the items listed above can turn a nice meal into a cancer fighting powerhouse!

Mushrooms, especially Reishi mushrooms, have been found to be helpful for those afflicted with cancer and some studies have shown that they are particularly active against prostate cancer.

You should be aware that turmeric has powerful cancer fighting compounds, but it is difficult for the body to absorb what it needs. By mixing turmeric with black pepper, your body can increase its absorption rate by as much between 200 and 2,000 percent!

It’s also been noted in several studies that the lycopene found in tomatoes, the resveratrol from grapes, the allium in onions, green tea, colorful berries and the sulforaphane from asparagus all have strong cancer fighting compounds and should be consumed quite regularly.

Vitamin D from the sun also has been shown to play an important role in the avoidance of cancer. Did you know that rates of colon, ovarian, and breast cancer are lower in parts of the world where they get plenty of sunshine than it is in Northern parts of the planet where cold winters severely limit the population’s sun exposure levels. Research shows that almost 2/3rds of people affected with all different types of cancer have low levels of vitamin D in their blood. The lower their vitamin D levels, the more advanced the cancer. Try to get the best and most natural form of vitamin D, which is sunlight. Start with 5 minutes each day and work yourself up to 30 or 45 minutes of sunlight each day. If this isn’t possible, then take a good quality vitamin D supplement.

There are other factors that can help you avoid cancer by improving your immune system. Avoiding sugar and RF waves, getting plenty of exercise and sunshine, keeping your weight down, avoiding excessive alcohol, detoxing regularly, not smoking, and getting plenty of sleep each night
