As cancer rates continue to rise, more and more people are looking into the ways that food can not only provide the body with nourishment, but to stop, prevent, or kill cancer cells.

Well, no one can deny that certain herbs, spices, and foods have been consumed for their medicinal properties for thousands of years. Everyone knows that you can eat tomatoes, but not their deadly cousin, Nightshade. You can eat mushrooms, but not all of them. Trained Herbalists know which herbs are good for what purpose, and which are deadly.

The world is a mixed up place where you can buy cigarettes known to cause cancer, but you can’t buy certain herbs or mushrooms because they have no proven health benefit. Well, they do, but not the type of research that modern medicine will accept. Why don’t pharmaceutical companies pay to do research on herbs, foods, and spices? Because they can’t make money on it and these studies would put them out of business.

Well, the good news here is that information is still available so that you can make your own informed choices. We have created a list of 25 of the best foods, spices, and herbs that have scientific evidence to prove that they are great cancer fighters.


1. Algae

Two of the most potent and proven cancer fighters in the world are chlorella and spirulina. These have super powerful detoxification powers that including removing heavy metals from the body, immune boosting abilities bar none, and encouraging healthy gut flora. All types of algae are also known fungus fighters, which mean they can remove Candida from the body. Anyone who is fighting cancer should consider algae a must have in their diet.


2. Medicinal Mushrooms

Although some mushrooms are referred to as “magic” mushrooms, the ones we are referring to are truly medicinal mushrooms, such as chaga, reishi, and shitake. These types of mushrooms have anti-tumor compounds and other types of bioactive molecules which include alkaloids, phenolics, tocopherols, folates, organic acids, flavonoids, carotenoids, and ascorbic acid enzymes. Numerous studies show that, when consumed over time, these types of healing mushrooms prevent tumor growth by greatly increasing the level of antioxidants in the blood, while boosting immune system levels in those which are already stricken with cancer.


3. Hemp

Hemp plants are one of the richest sources of oil on this planet, and they are super balanced as well. Hemp oil has the perfect ratio of 3 to 1 for omega 6 to omega 3 oils. Hemp seed oil also contains as much as 80 percent essential fatty acids- more than any other plant. These fatty acids are vital to our immune function because of their high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory fatty acids. These two compounds oxidize the cells of the body and restore health at a cellular level. Cancer cannot survive in a high oxygen environment, which makes the high levels of essential fatty acids in hemp the perfect supplement for healing cancer.


4. Turmeric

There has been so many studies done in the last decade regarding turmeric, it’s astounding that no one in mainstream medicine has been willing to stand up and give it the credit it deserves. Study after study shows that turmeric has powerful anti-cancer compounds that block the development of cancer in numerous ways including the disruption of cell signaling pathways and eliminating chronic inflammation in the body. In fact, some hospitals in the US are considering using it to help treat colon cancer and stop polyps from turning cancerous. Whether you want to stop the progression of cancer or if you are looking for something to stop cancer from starting, you cannot go wrong by adding more turmeric to your diet.


5. Berberis

This is a family of herbs that research has shown have a powerful action against cancer, especially with ovarian cancer. In fact, In March of 2015, the journal CancerWatch, this herb was shown in studies to work better than the drug Temozolomide on brain cancer.

    What a totally worthless article about herbs and spices nobody ever heard of. Does your market carry Pau D’Arco? How about that all time favorite, Butchers Broom?
