FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Ginger

Like mushrooms, this pungent, spicy root is a part of medical traditions around the world. It has a well-documented anti-nausea and anti-vomiting effect that may be useful in mitigating the side effects of chemotherapy, and it effectively boosts the immune system by causing sweating. Research strongly indicates that ginger is a powerful tumor suppressant and anticancer agent. One study used gingerols, the active phytonutrients in ginger and the main contributor to its flavor, to kill ovarian cancer cells.

Perhaps just as important as a cancer-fighting boost to your immune system, eating healthy can help keep you feeling better. In the struggle with cancer, diet is something that you have complete control over, and you can make it work to your benefit.

FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Kale

A cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli, we’ve written about kale before, and its well-deserved reputation as a “superfood” has rocketed it to popularity in recent years. Kale is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds and helps the body rid itself of toxins. Its cancer-preventive properties have been the subject of extensive research, but there’s some evidence that kale may help the body actively fight cancer as well, rather than merely lowering the risk.

FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Mushrooms

Mushrooms have been valued for thousands of years for their healing properties. They’re packed with nutrients and many varieties are thought to help macrophages more effectively target bacteria, viruses and cancer cells. Shiitake mushrooms, in particular, have well-documented anti-cancer qualities. In addition to helping the immune system function more effectively, they are thought to spur apoptosis (cell death) in tumors in some instances. There is also some evidence that certain types of mushrooms may make cancer medications more effective, though more research is needed. Even crimini mushrooms, the most commonly eaten mushroom in the world, have a wealth of immune-boosting, cancer-fighting properties, perhaps even more than other mushrooms, like shiitakes, that are more commonly thought of as “medicinal.”

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.

FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Berries

Berries are awesome. All berries are chock full of antioxidants. Current research is finding that the more antioxidants we can obtain from whole foods the lower the rate of cellular degeneration, which is a fancy way of saying lowering the risk of chronic disease development. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries are excellent. The darker the berry the more anti-cancer punch it packs. According to the Stanford Prevention Research Center, phytochemicals called anthocyanosides are present in blueberries and others. These are known to be one of the most powerful antioxidants to prevent cancer. In addition, ellagic acid is a powerful polyphenol found in berries, particularly raspberries and strawberries. Ellagic acid has been shown to significantly slow tumor growth in mice models. Try to get 2 cups of whole berries (not juice) per day.

FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Garlic

A known fact about cancer cells, is that they love to feed on sugar. Keeping a diet low in processed & refined sugars is paramount to not only treating but preventing cancer. Garlic helps regulate blood sugar levels that reduce insulin production. Low insulin levels in your blood cells help to prevent tumor-growing cells. Garlic is known to reduce the risk for breast and prostate cancer. A phytonutrient in garlic called diallyl disulfide helps prevent cancer of the lung, skin and colon. Diallyl disulfide also helps to kill leukemia cells. Garlic is also a known immune modulator, thus will help fortify your immune system against viral and bacterial invaders keeping your immune system strong and vigilant to prevent cancer cells from proliferating.

FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Turmeric

This is simply one of my most favorite cancer fighting super-foods. Turmeric is popular spice that is found in curries, etc. It contains enormous anti-inflammatory properties that can act as a natural ‘fire extinguisher’ to quench inflammation. Inflammation provides cancer cells an advantage to grow, thus anything we can do to reduce it will help reduce our risk of not only cancer, but most chronic disease facing developed nations today. The principal molecule in turmeric with beneficial effects is curcumin. Curcumin acts against transcription factors, which are like a master switch for our genes. Transcription factors regulate all the genes needed for tumors to form. When we turn them off, we shut down some genes that are involved in the growth and invasion of cancer cells. Cancer is fueled by inflammatory foods, thus to starve cancer cells we literally need to take away the fuel sources that feed inflammation while also increasing anti-inflammatory foods to combat from both sides. In addition, multiple studies demonstrated that patients who took turmeric during chemotherapy treatments showed increased improvements than receiving chemotherapy alone.
