Here we have further advice on what to eat in order to prevent cancer. Fruit and vegetables are included of course, yet so are more unusual choices such as wine and chocolate. A colorful diet is what we should be aiming for, meaning a mix of everything: Fatty fish, nuts, vegetables, fresh fruit, beans, soya and even wine, tea and chocolate. These foods are all said to significantly reduce our risk of developing cancer.
The World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research have reported that up to 30 per cent of cancers are preventable if we make changes to our diet and lifestyle. In addition research published in the journal Nutrition says prostate, breast, and bowel cancer can be reduced by up to 70 per cent whilst lung cancer can be cut by up to 50 per cent if we eat certain foods.
Oregon State University scientists in the US have found that sulforaphane, a nutrient that is found in cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli, is capable of destroying prostate tumors whilst leaving healthy cells intact and unaffected. Cancer patients and scientists are given new hope with this new research.
Diet alone is not a cancer treatment or an infallible prevention. Yet your nutritional intake prior to, during and post cancer treatment can have a huge impact on its result.
It is the immune system’s business to locate and eliminate cancer cells and it can only do this properly when it has been properly nourished. If we do not take steps to prevent cancer one in two men and one in three women in the developed West will at some point experience some type of cancer. It is therefore crucial to be aware of how we can reduce our risk.
