Sometimes food can be the best medicine - and for those at risk of cancer, or currently fighting cancer, what you eat can be more important than you think. For many people, the healing powers of food can not only just help you feel better, but even help you fight off, decrease, and prevent a disease from spreading. In some cases, your diet may influence the development of cancer, so eating healthy all the time is imperative to keep your body strong.
Whether you're taking preventative measures, or currently fighting the disease, these are 14 amazing cancer-fighting foods to should add into your diet: broccoli, beans, berries, carrots, tomatoes, turmeric, garlic, fatty fish, nuts, citrus, olive oil, cinnamon, flax seeds, and leafy greens. These foods are beneficial all for different reasons - some contain antioxidants, others contain fiber to keep your heart healthy, some are high in certain vitamins like vitamin D and Omega-3 which are known to have cancer-fighting properties, and some can boost your immune system. Studies have shown that these foods have the ability to stop and shrink the growth of cancer cells.
It is also a good idea to add supplementation into your daily regimen to help with detoxification, as well as to make sure you are getting the vitamins and nutrients you need. On top of adding these foods into your diet and taking supplements, you should avoid eating added sugars, processed meat, processed grains, fried foods, and red meat. You should also try to avoid overcooking your food, especially your vegetables as they will lose all of their nutrients and health benefits.
