11. Green Tea

Not just any green tea but matcha green tea. It is a unique variety that is powdered in a special way and used in traditional Japanese ceremonies.

The secret in matcha’s abilities can be found in the polyphenol compounds, called catechins. Research has shown that the catechins in matcha tea can not only protect you from the damage caused by the sun’s UV radiation, but they improve the functioning of your immune system.The National Cancer Institute says that they have been proven clinically to protect cells from DNA damage due to its substantial free radical killing abilities. Other compounds in matcha tea – polyphenols – have been found to inhibit tumor cell development. This is a whole lot of cancer protection from one little drink!

10. Berries

All berries, especially black raspberries, contain phytonutrients and ellagic acid, which stop tumors from growing. They do not only slow the growth of cancer cells, but have been shown in studies to ramp up enzymes in the body that destroy substances that cause cancer and prevent the growth of tumors. Eating berries vastly decreases the risk of developing lung, stomach, and mouth cancers. This is according to hundreds of clinical studies that have been conducted for both the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research.

Find ways to add organic berries to your meals daily and reap the wide range of anti-cancer benefits they have to offer. You can’t go wrong, no matter which berry you choose.

9. Omega-3 Fatty Acids

You knew there was a good reason to eat fish every week, right? Flaxseed oil and hemp oil, and eating all those delicious oily fish provide your body with omega-3 fatty acids which make your body inhospitable to cancer cells.

DHA (docosahexanoic acid), a type of omega-3 fatty acid, has been shown to reduce the size of tumors, as well as enhance the positive effects of chemotherapy drugs while limiting their side effects.  DHA is also a major component of our gray brain matter and our retina. It’s essential for normal neurological as well as cellular development. Research has found that DHA acts at a molecular level and reduces the accumulation of white blood cells, oxidative stress, as well as overall inflammation. All of these processes have been linked to the growth of cancerous tumors.

8. Garlic

The National Cancer Institute issued a statement that admits garlic can reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, especially cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. Well, we knew that already.

It is most beneficial to eat garlic raw. This tasty herb fights off those nasty free radicals, reduces inflammation in the body, and fights cancer. Who would have ever thought that “garlic breath” would turn out to be healthy? The compounds that cause that terrible breath are the same ones that stop substances from causing cancer to form in your body. Garlic also helps to repair DNA while it kills off cancer cells. It also reduces the risk of developing colon cancer.

Cook up some Chinese food tonight and don’t forget to add plenty of organic garlic!

7. Maitake and Shiitake Mushrooms

These mushrooms, like all others, improve immune function and are great sources of antioxidants. They are also full of vitamins, including C, and B, as well as calcium and other important minerals. However, shiitake mushrooms are known for fighting the development and progression of both cancer and AIDS by improving the immune system and allowing your body to fight off these diseases on its own. Lentinan, a compound found in the mushrooms, can stop or at least slow the growth of tumors. An activated hexose compound, known as 1.3-beat glucan, is linked to a slowed activity within tumors as well as found to lessen the terrible side effects of chemotherapy. Eat both the stem and the top of the mushrooms for all the health benefits. If these mushrooms are a lot to your taste, you can even find kits for growing them at home.

6. Grapes

Wow, how can something that tastes so good and irresistible be so great at knocking out cancer?

It’s the resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant, that gives grapes their power. Like all antioxidants, it can reduce cancers and pre-cancerous growth, prevent the development of cancerous tumors. Research has shown that resveratrol is particularly potential to stop breast, liver, and stomach cancers. Green grapes have less resveratrol, as compared to red and purple ones. Also, the skin has a lot of the compound. It’s recommended that you eat less seedless grapes and eat more of the seeds that are in grapes for your best health.

If you consume organic red grapes daily, or drink fresh grape juice, this will protect you against cancers and tumor growth naturally.

This type includes radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, Brussels, watercress, and more. These tasty vegetables all contain sulforaphane, among other helpful compounds, which fight breast, prostate, brain, and colorectal cancers.

Researchers at Ohio State University did a study that showed that anthocyanins, the substances that give cabbage their purple color, cut the growth of colon cancer cells in by 50 to 100 percent in tests done in vitro and in rats. Dark colored plants are all a good source of indole-3-carbinol. This is a natural compound that improves DNA repair in the body’s cells while it blocks the growth of cancerous cells.

4. Food with Folates

Foods that are rich in folates include avocados, apricots, pumpkin, green leafy veggies, and chicken livers. Studies have shown that folates, or even its synthetic form, folic acid, significantly reduce the risk of colon cancer. Either folate or folic acids are vital to the body in order to correctly replicate DNA.

B9, or folic acid, is often added to our food supply. It costs more and is less stable than the nature made version. Natural folates are preferable to synthetic versions. Why? Because man made molecules can sometimes act in strange ways within the body’s normal biochemical pathways. If you have ever heard from someone that folates cause cancer, rather than prevent, they are actually referring to the synthetic version. Folates, which are made by nature, never cause problems.

3. Turmeric

Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, which can stop the spread of cancer. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative (those that fight against free radicals) properties. A summarized review of more than 700 studies done with turmeric showed that this root appears to outperform many known pharmaceutical drugs.

In India, most people eat between 2 to 2.5 grams of this spice every day. That would be equal to about 4 to 6 capsule supplements. India has some of the lowest incidences of prostate, colon, lung, and breast cancer in the world. Many researchers believe that this is due to the amount of turmeric that is consumed in that country on a regular basis.

2. Tomatoes

Wow, who would have thought that those lovely little tomatoes in salad could fight cancer? It’s the carotenoids and lycopene that are found in tomatoes that do most of the work when it comes to fighting cancer, especially against cancer of the pancreas and prostate.

To get the most benefit, you need to consume seven to ten servings every week. That’s not as hard as it sounds. A few tomatoes in your salad, perhaps one in your green smoothie, some spaghetti and lasagna for dinner, and some fresh tomato juice in the afternoon and you’ve got yourself set up for the week.  For the best health, always make your own pasta sauce and juice fresh from organic tomatoes.
