FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Bok Choy

This type of Chinese cabbage contains brassinin; a powerful cancer-fighter. Brassinin is also found in broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts. Bok Choy should be eaten 3-4 times a week, in 1/2 cup servings to obtain its full benefits. Many other dark green leafy greens have similar properties and consumption of these should be increased as well. My other favorites are kale, chard, and spinach. As always, do your best to eat organic as much as possible to avoid congesting your detoxification pathways necessary to prevent cancerous agents from remaining in your system.
