The TOP 10 Foods That Both Prevent and Fight Cancer

Cancer is a disease where the DNA and genes inside your cells get damaged, Causing the cells start mutating and growing uncontrollably.

Unlike healthy cells, cancer cells become immortal and start spreading at a rapid rate throughout the body, Using up your nutrients and burning through your sugar reserves.

As the cells mutate they form tumours causing cancer in different areas like your bowels, liver, pancreas or lungs for example.

Cancerous cells also destroy your nerves, your blood vessels and your organs and eventually cause death.

But the question is what damages your DNA and cells in the first place?

One of the main causes is refined sugar that’s often added to our foods, as this causes free radical damage to the mitochondria inside your cells.

Another type of sugar that raises the risk of cancer is high fructose corn syrup, also used to manufacture sweets, juice drinks, sauces and fast foods.

And even artificial sweeteners used in diet soda like aspartame

damage the insulin receptors in your cells which can also lead to cancer.

Refined vegetable oils are also carcinogenic, Processed grans and flour that depletes your antioxidants, opening up the risk of DNA damage Also the chemical pesticides and weed killers used to grow our produce is also harmful to your cells.

Along with smoking, vaping, alcohol, and other pollutants that we breathe in.

(Although we have all been exposed these things we are fortunate that there) Fortunately there are natural foods that contain healing properties, which help to prevent your cells becoming cancerous.

In this video you will learn about X of the best foods in the world that help to both prevent and fight cancer at the cellular level.

Just a quick reminder, this video is for educational purposes only, so do speak to your doctor for a medical diagnosis if you have any health concerns.

1. Raw Garlic

Eating crushed, raw garlic on a regular basis can help to block the growth of cancerous cells in your body.

It contains natural chemicals such as ajoene, allicin and sulfur which boosts antioxidant activity in your body, protecting your cells, mitochondria and DNA from damage.

Allicin in garlic has also been shown to cause existing cancer cells to self-destruct and die (apoptosis).

It's important that you crush your garlic to activate allicin, and make sure that you don’t cook it, as heat destroys this delicate compound.

2. Broccoli Sprouts

Broccoli sprouts are 2-3 day old microgreens which are sprouted from broccoli seeds.

They are rich in an anti-cancer chemical called sulforaphane, which causes cancer cells to commit suicide, but leaves your healthy cells in-tact.

Broccoli sprouts contain 100x more sulforaphane than fully grown broccoli.

Studies show that when you eat more sulforaphane, your liver produces more enzymes that break down toxins and chemicals in your body.

(that could have cause cancer in the long term)

You can start growing these very easily at home using an inexpensive sprouting kit on your windowsill.

You can also use cauliflower, radish, arugula or wheatgrass seeds, as these too are packed full of anti-cancer compounds.

I recommend adding them on the top cooked vegetables, as the enzymes within help your stomach absorb more nutrients from the cooked foods.

Or you can simply toss them into a healthy salad.

3. Blueberries

Start eating a small handful of blueberries every single day to improve your overall health and strengthen your immune system.

Blueberries and other berries contain plant pigments called anthocyanins, giving them their black/purple/reddish color.

Anthocyanins are potent antioxidants that protect your cells from free radical damage, that occurs from the sugar, junk foods, vegetable oils etc..

If you want to protect your body from damage, or heal from any medical conditions you need to focus on eating foods rich in antioxidants every single day.

Other anti-cancerous berries include bilberries, blackberries, strawberries, gooseberries and acai berry, some of which can be taken as a powdered supplement.

4. Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut is a type of fermented cabbage often consumed in Germany, and is one of the richest sources of Vitamin C in the world.

1 cup contains an enormous 700mg of Vitamin C, that's over 8x the minimum daily requirements.

Cancer often spreads into areas of inflammation and swelling in your body, where your tissues are inflamed.

Vitamin C however helps to lower this inflammation, and remove free radicals in your blood in order to reduce the risk of cancer.

It's important that you eat foods rich in the REAL Vitamin C complex, as 'ascorbic acid' supplements do not have the same effect as whole foods.

I recommend eating a serving of sauerkraut 3x per week.

As it's fermented, it's rich in prebiotics and probiotics (friendly bacteria) that help to feed your colon cells and prevent the growth of polyps, tumours and bowel cancer.

Other excellent fermented foods are Plain Greek yoghurt (full fat), kimchi, miso and kefir.

5. Cruciferous Vegetables

Many of us have abused our bodies for years, eating lots of junk food and sugar and perhaps alcohol.

This can cause toxins to build up inside the bones, the liver, the tissues and other organs which can raise your risk of cancer later in life.

Fortunately you can help your body to start removing these carcinogenic toxins by eating lots of organic cruciferous vegetables.

Such as kale, cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, broccoli, beet tops,

arugula, bok choy, collard greens, watercress etc..

Vegetables in the brassica family like these are packed full of anti-cancer

phytonutrients such as indole-3-carbnol, along with Vitamin C, potassium, magnesium B-vitamins and much more These nutrients help your liver enzymes to break down toxins into harmless water-soluble particles that can be released through your urine.

This is called phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification.

Make sure that you don't overcook your vegetables, you can lightly steam them but it's best to eat them raw in a salad with other veggies like tomatoes, spring onions, herbs etc..

6. Turmeric & Black Pepper

Turmeric is one of the most well-known natural medicines for lowering inflammation and stimulating healing within the human body.

You can start adding powdered turmeric to stir fries, curries, soups, stews or it can be used to make a herbal tea.

The active ingredient inside turmeric is called curcumin, and has been shown to prevent cancerous tumours from growing new blood vessels.

This helps to starve cancer off cancer cells and prevent them from spreading.

You should also add black pepper whenever you eat turmeric, as it contains piperine which can help you absorb curcumin 2000% better.

7. Mushrooms

In China mushrooms have been used for centuries to help fight off diseases and boost the immune system against viruses and infections.

Since the 1970's in Japan and China, certain plant chemicals are extracted from mushrooms (PSP & PSK) and used as part of a treatment plan for cancer.

Some of the best anti-cancer mushrooms to eat are turkey tail, cordyceps, chaga, lions mane, reishi and maitake.

These actually have over 40 different phytonutrients that help to fight/prevent cancer, such as quercetin, hispolon, baicalein and many others.

8. Matcha Green Tea

If you really want to improve the health of your cells start consuming 2 cups of matcha green tea on a daily basis.

Compared to regular green tea, matcha contains more chlorophyll and has more concentrated nutrients with healing properties.

One of its major compounds called EGCG, has been shown to prevent cancer cells from spreading from a tumour to other tissues and organs throughout the body.

9. Wild Caught Fish

Cancer usually forms and spreads to parts of your body that are inflamed and damaged, so it's important to keep inflammation under control.

This will reduce the risk of developing cancer and also help to fight against it.

Some of the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods are wild fish like sardines, salmon and mackerel.

These fish are loaded with active Omega 3-fatty acids (DHA & EPA) which help to bring down swelling and inflammation, in order to protect against harmful cancer.

When following a medical plan for cancer, it's important to eat these often to help your body cope with the chemotherapy drugs and medications.

You can take Antarctic Krill Oil as a supplement (500mg) daily. This is rich in stable omega-3s and also contains astaxanthin, a powerful cancer fighting carotenoid and antioxidant.

10. Dark Chocolate (Sugar Free) Number 10 is sugar free dark chocolate.

Cacao beans which are used to make chocolate are packed full of antioxidants and phytonutrients such as chlorogenic acid, that have also been shown to ward off against cancer.

It actually contains more flavanols than blueberries and acai, so adding this to your rotation is a great way to boost antioxidants in your body.

Make sure that you choose a high percentage organic dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa solids) sweetened with stevia, and not sugar.

Eating a couple of cubes per day can help control blood pressure, help to regulate cholesterol and also lower cortisol, the stress hormone that makes you gain weight.

Let's look at some additional foods that have anti-cancer properties, that I can't go into detail here today due the scope of this video. You want to research these in your own time.

Black Seed Oil, Red Algae, Sweet Wormwood, Pumpkin seeds, ginger, Celery, Walnuts, Oregano, Ashwagandha, Soursop, Other Ways To Prevent/Fight Cancer

Now that you have lots of information about the foods that fight cancer, let's explore a few important lifestyle tips that use to protect and heal your cells.

1. Fasting for 48 hours or longer has been used by many patients periodically to reverse late stage cancer. When you fast, IGF-1, glucose, insulin and other growth factors are reduced, which helps the body to heal and kill cancer cells.

2. Eating foods rich in soluble fiber like chia seeds, feeds the friendly microbes in the gut which boosts the amount of butyrate in your body. This lowers inflammation throughout the body, and reduces oxidation, preventing DNA damage within the cells and mitochondria.

3. Reduce processed meats from the diet, stop eating foods cooked in vegetable oil, and eliminate sugar from your body. This will help to prevent free radical damage inside the cells.

4. Hydrate the body with at least 1 litre mineral water daily, avoiding tap water which contains hormone disruptors. You can also add potassium citrate to your water, which helps improve cell function, and removes excess sugar in the blood.

5. Focus on eating organic, antioxidant rich foods already discussed to stimulate cellular healing. Add low glycaemic berries, lemons, krill oil, nutritional yeast, grass fed beef, organ meats and sea kelp to your rotation.

6. Lastly, get 20 minutes of exercise at least 2x per week. This increases oxygen levels by 10-20x in the blood. Cancer cells do not thrive in an oxygen rich environment.

Exercise outside when you can, as infrared light from the sun can boost melatonin, a powerful antioxidant. Also be sure to quit smoking/vaping.

Thank you so much for reading my article today, and as always I wish you great health, wealth and happiness.
