3 Foods for Fighting Cancer

As you already know, cancer is a serious and rapidly growing illness. Though researchers have been able to pinpoint the cause of some types of cancer, other kinds and causes remain a mystery. While there is no guarantee that you can avoid this deadly disease, doctors believe that there are certain foods that might give you an advantage when fighting or preventing cancer. Here are some of the best foods for keeping your body in fighting shape:

Garlic

Garlic actually fights all kinds of sickness. Though the specifics aren’t perfectly clear, there is an obvious link between ingesting garlic and staying well. Garlic is thought to fight toxins in the digestive tract, killing many illnesses before they are able to invade your body. As for cancer, doctors believe that garlic might keep cancer cells from multiplying or may even keep them from working in the first place. While you might not want to eat garlic raw, it can be added as a spice, sprinkled over meals, or eaten in creative ways such as stuffed in green olives.

Broccoli

This tree-like green vegetable is especially good for women. Researchers have found a strong link between eating broccoli and fighting breast cancer. It is believed that this veggie keeps cancer from damaging normal cells and overtaking healthy cell production. It is also thought to help slow the growth of cancerous tumors. Broccoli can be tough for some people to eat, so be creative. Eat it raw, with dip, with cheese, or in casseroles or stews to enjoy its many benefits.

Tomatoes

While broccoli is good for women, this red juicy treat is thought to be good for men. Tomatoes contain a large amount of a certain antioxidant that is thought to fight off prostate cancer. The general belief is that tomatoes keep cancer cells from damaging your healthy cells, which ultimately keeps cancer from spreading. To eat more tomato, try them raw, with dip, in tomato sauce, or cooked in your favorite dishes. Even eating a healthy dose of marinara may have you experiencing the benefits that tomatoes bring.

While eating certain foods certainly isn’t a sure fire way to avoid or treat cancer, it certainly can’t hurt to fuel your body with the best food that you can. With these doctor approved super foods, you might be giving your body the extra boost it needs to stay healthy, strong, and in fighting condition.
