15 Foods that Force Cancer Cell Death, Remove Toxins and Relentlessly Hunt Free Radicals

Research over the past decade has shown without a doubt, that what you eat has a profound effect on your overall health. The simple truth is that an anti-cancer diet doesn’t look that different from the healthy foods you should be eating anyway. That means plenty of organic fruits and vegetables, as well as lean meat or fish.

To compile a list of cancer fighting foods would require a list of most fruits, vegetables, protein and herbs. Some foods will fight inflammation which fuels cancer growth. Other foods force cancer cell death, while other foods help the body to remove toxins and protect against free radical damage. Healthy organic foods will attack any illness on some level.
Cancer Fighting Foods
So What is on The List of Cancer Fighting Foods?
Pretty much the exact opposite of the Standard American Diet (SAD). Organic foods that include colorful vegetables, fruits, beans, healthy fats, garlic, herbs, spices and lean proteins. While this is not a complete list, let’s take a look at a few highlights.

1. Beans

Beans offer numerous phytochemicals along with fiber. Phytochemicals such as saponins have the ability to inhibit cancer cell reproduction, protease inhibitors slow the division of cancer cells, and phytic acid which also slows the progression of tumors are all components of beans. Beans contain Folate a B vitamin that reduces the risk of pancreatic cancer.

2. Black Seed/Oil

Also known as black cumin, black cumin seed, or black seed. There are currently 656 peer reviewed studies on this amazing food. This seed has the ability to stabilize and strengthen the immune system. Dr. Hwyda Arafar M.D., PhD used black cumin in the treatment of pancreatic cancer patients with astounding results of 80% cell death.

3. Carrots

Carrots are packed with beta-carotene, an antioxidant that scientists believe protects cell membranes from toxin damage and slow the growth of cancer cells. Because they supply antioxidants that can battle HPV. Carrots may also prove to be beneficial in the treatment of leukemia.

4. Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables such as bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, kale, collards and cauliflower contain sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinols (I3Cs). These are two potent cancer fighters. They help to detoxify the body and help precancerous cells from developing into malignant tumors. In studies conducted by the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer, broccoli and other cruciferous veggies were most protective against mouth, esophagus and stomach cancers. You may also consider eating broccoli sprouts, for an even greater nutritional boost.

5. Garlic

The same sulfur compounds that give garlic its strong odor can stop cancer causing substances from forming in your body, speed up DNA repair and kill cancer cells. Don’t forget to include other foods from the alliaceous group; onions, leeks, shallots and chives. The sulfur in this group of foods facilitate the death of prostate, colon, breast and lung cancer cells.

6. Ginger

Ginger has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can slow cancer growth. The spicy root is also helpful for relieving nausea, migraines, sore muscles and arthritis. The anti-inflammatory power of ginger kills ovarian cancer cells in a test tube faster than chemo, according to a study done at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.

7. Grapes and Resveratrol

Research shows that resveratrol offers numerous health benefits including, reducing inflammation, and preventing oxidation of LDL cholesterol. It is also helps to limit the spread of cancer cells and triggers cancer cell death. If you are looking to increase your resveratrol intake consider consuming grapes, blueberries, cranberries and pomegranate each of which offer a wide range of antioxidants.

8. Green Tea

Rich in polyphenols and catechins, in particular EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate). EGCG is tough on cancer cells. This potent antioxidant helps detoxify the liver and retards cancer growth. Lab studies have found that catechins in tea can shrink tumors and reduce tumor cell growth.
