Cancer- banner

Cancer has become one of the leading causes of death for people in North America. In many cases, it’s not genetics that’s to blame: it’s poor food and lifestyle choices. That means you may be able to prevent cancer if you eat and live right.

Eat “resistant starches.”

“Resistant starches” are a type of starch that is found in green bananas, white beans and rolled oats. It has been found to help reduce the risk of colon cancer, especially when eating a diet high in red meat.

According to the study, published in Cancer Prevention Research, participants who ate 300 grams of lean red meat a day for four weeks experienced an increase in cell proliferation in the rectal area. But, when their diet included 40 grams of resistant starches a day, cell proliferation levels returned to normal.

Don’t boil your broccoli, steam it.

Broccoli is one of the best cancer-preventing super foods out there. But if you’re boiling it, you might not be getting its full benefits.

A study by Italian researchers found that there’s more glucosinolate in steamed broccoli than when it’s boiled or fried.

Eat Brazil nuts.

Brazil nuts are rich in selenium, a trace mineral that tells cancer cells to kill themselves. It also helps repair DNA.

Research conducted by doctors at Harvard found that men with the highest blood levels of selenium were 48% less likely to develop advanced stages of prostate cancer disease over 13 years, when compared to men with the lowest levels of selenium.

Eat broccoli, cabbage and other cruciferous veggies.

According to a European study involving several nations, it was found that people who eat broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and other cruciferous veggies at least once per week have a lower risk of kidney cancer.

Get some sun.

The most important source of vitamin D is sunlight — almost 90% of the vitamin D in our bodies is from the sun! A deficiency of this vitamin can:

  • make communication between cells more difficult, leading to less cohesion and more spread of cancer cells.
  • cause improper cell maturation and reproduction

Marinate your meat before cooking.

A study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry found that marinating red meat in beer or wine for 2 hours before cooking reduces the number of heterocyclic amines in the meat. Heterocyclic amines are harmful compounds that have been linked to cancer in the colon, prostate, breast and lymph.

You can also try rubbing a bit of rosemary on your meat before cooking: Kansas State University research found that this blocks the formation of heterocyclic amines by up to 100!

Green tea is healing.

There are over 50 studies that have been published that show the association between tea and cancer, and most are in favor of drinking the brew. Tea has been found to reduce the risk of breast, ovarian, colon, prostate and lung cancer.

A bit of alcohol is good for you.

Did you know that alcohol can actually help protect your body against stomach cancer? Moderate drinking of wine, beer or lager has been found to destroy Helicobacter pylori in your stomach, a bacterium that can lead to stomach cancer. At least that’s what researchers at Queens University in Belfast have found!

But be careful with this one: drinking more than one or two alcoholic drinks a day can actually increase your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophageal, liver, and breast.

Don’t eat farmed salmon, eat wild instead.

Salmon is packed with omega-3, which is a fatty acid that acts as an anti-inflammatory that fights cancer. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that women who ate fish 3 times a week or more were at a 33% lower risk of developing polyps. Polyps are abnormal growths of tissue that commonly appear in the colon. While they aren’t cancerous originally, they can eventually turn into cancer.

Other fatty fish, like mackerel and sardines, also have the same health benefits.

Use black out curtains when sleeping.

Research has found that women who were exposed to light at night while sleeping are at a higher risk of developing ovarian and breast cancer. This is because light interferes with the normal production of melatonin, a brain chemical that is vital in regulating sleep-wake cycles.

Disrupting melatonin production may increase estrogen, a hormone that can cause specific types of cancer.

Cut back on fatty animal protein.

Harvard researchers say that if you’re eating 3ounces of red meat everyday, you’re 13% more likely to die than those who don’t eat any meat at all. Yikes! They found this bit of harsh reality by tracking the food choices of over 121,000 adults for the course of 28 years. And the most common cause of death? Heart disease or cancer!

Eat red grapes, with the skin on.

Red grapes are a great source of resveratrol, an antioxidant that has been shown to slow the growth of cancer in specific areas of your body: the lymph nodes, stomach, breasts, and liver.

Resveratrol also inhibits the growth of abnormal skin cells, which can reduce your risk of skin cancer. Make sure to eat your grapes with the skins on, since that’s where the resveratrol is.

Avoid fries and chips.

French fries and potato chips are cooked at high temperatures, and this creates a compound called acrylamide that gets eaten along with your deep fried treats. Prolonged acrylamide exposure has been found in lab testing on rats to be a risk for multiple types of cancer.

And don’t even think about bronzers and spray-on tans because they aren’t totally safe. A common ingredient in these products is dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a chemical that the FDA warns you shouldn’t use in or near your mouth, eyes, or nose, since the risks of inhalation are unknown at this time.
