Superfoods that Fight Cancer

Cancer is considered as the "silent killer" since it will just manifest its true nature when it has inflicted serious damage in your body - that most often lead to death. As the nation's second most deadly disease, cancer brings several risk factors with it. Thus, it is just logical that we take a good look at the foods we consume that are known to help reduce cancer risks.

What are these Foods?
It's great to start introducing nutrient-rich foods to help our body ward off diseases. A dietary habit that's rich in fiber, vegetables, fruits, and juices made from organic ingredients can make a huge impact in preventing cancer. 
  • Foods that are rich in phytochemicals - found in beans and cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and brussels sprouts, are very strong options. 
  • Dark green leafy vegetables such as romaine lettuce, spinach, collard greens, are pumped up with lutein, carotenoids, and fibers that make these vegetables cancer-fighting foods. 
  • Tomatoes are also considered as cancer-fighting foods. Aside from its lycopene content, the antioxidant phytochemical it contains helps prevent heart disease. It's a good source of vitamins A, C, and E - your shield that battles against cancer-causing elements. You should try to add tomatoes on your salad or top it on your homemade pizza. Tomatoes are great ingredients for your favorite sandwich recipe too!
  • The watermelon is stuffed with lots of antioxidants. A daily serving assures you of your 80% vitamin C daily requirement. It is also a great source of vitamin A and beta carotene. It also contains lycopene like tomatoes. 
  • Berries such as strawberries and blueberries are rich in vitamin C and fiber. They are very simple finger foods that you can add on your favorite whole grain cereal meal, oatmeal, or low-fat yogurt. 

It's really great to focus more on foods that are rich in vitamins A, C, and E - they're all anti-oxidants. These vitamins serve as your shield from cancer by preventing the growth of free radicals in your body. 

Additional Information:
One-quarter of kidney beans and two ounces of red meat has the same amount of fiber and protein. If you like pasta, you can make a healthy pasta using kidney beans, broccoli, and whole wheat pasta - this will definitely serve you with your vitamins A, C, and E needs. You can mix it up with your favorite low-fat dressing for a serving of cancer-fighting meal!
