According to Prostate.net the Top 10 Natural Cancer Killers are: beans, broccoli, carrots, cayenne peppers, garlic, mushrooms, raspberries, resveratrol, tomatoes and turmeric. When it comes to beans, your diet should include a wide variety. White kidney beans in particular have a greater effect than some of the other more colorful ones. Broccoli is a major source of an important phytochemical and other cancer-fighting compounds that aid in fighting cancer-causing agents. Carrots are very important because of the beta-carotene antioxidant that they provide. When incorporating carrots into your diet it is best to try to enjoy them raw because they retain more nutrients in that state. Cayenne peppers are an excellent source of capsaicin, a strong combatant of cancer, which has even been incorporated into some conventional medical treatments.
Garlic is a great way to strengthen the immune system and contains compounds that help to fight cancer. Mushrooms also help the immune system, and contains lectin, which assists in preventing cancer cells from multiplying. Raspberries are another wonderful source of antioxidants, which help lower the risk of cancer. Resveratrol comes from grapes and red wines and acts as an important antioxidant that fights cancer. Tomatoes are a great addition to your diet because they are known as one of the best sources of a phytonutrient and antioxidant called lycopene.
You can incorporate tomatoes into your diet cooked, raw, or processed. Turmeric is a spice that possesses numerous cancer-fighting attributes. This is definitelya spice you should add to your diet. So the next time you go to the grocery store, keep these natural cancer killers in mind as you pick out ingredients for your home made meals. It could be a fun and healthy challenge to try to find a dish that incorporated all or most of these ingredients!
