Did you know that scientists have identified 5 kinds of foods/food groups that can effectively kill cancer? And their findings have been backed by hard scientific evidences.
Here they are now:
Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, has very strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It destroys cancer cells and promotes healthy-cell function. It’s effective against breast, lung, stomach, liver, colon, prostate, and cervical cancers.
The seeds and skin of red, purple and black grapes have been found to contain at least 13 antioxidants collectively known as flavonoids. Some of these flavonoids are quercetin, resveratrol, anthocyanin, catechin, epicatechin, gallic acid and ferulic acid. Grapes are effective against colorectal, prostate, lung, breast, and pancreatic cancers.
3. Green Tea
Antioxidants in green tea, collectively known an polyphenols, have been found to kill cancer cells. Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the most abundant of these polyphenols, causes cancer cells to commit “suicide” (apoptosis), leaving normal cells unaffected. Green tea is effective against oral, pancreatic, prostate, breast, lung, colon, liver, and skin cancers.
Lycopene, the potent antioxidant in tomatoes, is both anticarcinogenic and anti-inflammatory. It has been found to kill oral, pancreatic, breast, prostate, and colon cancers.
5. Fruits and Veggies
Fresh and organic fruits and vegetables are rich in phytochemicals which have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The brighter and deeper the color, the higher is the phytochemical content. These phytochemicals include the carotenoids in yellows, lycopene in reds, flavonoids in greens and citrus fruits, and polyphenols in berries.
Which of these foods do you eat often?
