Who says cancer prevention is expensive?

One may—or may not—take notice of this, but majority of the following can be found in his kitchen. By just simply incorporating these nature-given ingredients to his diet, one gets a clearer shot to living a healthier, longer life.

1. Guyabano

Otherwise known as the custard apple, Guyabano is deemed one of the miracle cures for cancer.

In the study, “Journal of Medical Chemistry,” 14 structurally-diverse Annonaceous acetogenins, found in Guyabano extract were identified and tested for their ability to prevent the growth of adriamycian resistant human mammary adenocarcinoma cells.

According to a research in 1976, a chemical found in Guyabano is about 10,000 times more powerful and effective than Adriamycin, a drug used for chemotherapy.

2. Broccoli

Vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli have cancer-fighting properties. But among others, broccoli alone has an ample amount of sulforaphane, a compound that strengthens the body’s protective enzymes and flushes out cancer-causing chemicals.

It helps fight: breast, liver, lung, prostate, skin, stomach, and bladder cancers. The more broccoli intake, the better.

3. Berries

All kinds of berries contain cancer-fighting phytonutrients.

Black raspberries have very high concentrations of phytochemicals called anthocyanins, which slow down the growth of premalignant cells, while keeping new blood vessels from forming (and potentially feeding a cancerous tumor). Berries help fight: colon, esophageal, oral, and skin cancers.

4. Tomatoes

The “best dietary source of lycopene,” it contains a carotenoid that gives tomatoes their red hue. Tomatoes help in stopping endometrial cancer cell growth, according to a study in “Nutrition and Cancer.” It also fights lung, prostate, and stomach cancers. Endometrial cancer kills nearly 8,000 people yearly.

Patients can benefit more from taking cooked tomatoes (e.g. pasta sauce), for the process of heating it increases the amount of lycopene one’s body can absorb.

5. Walnuts

Walnuts’ phytosterols (cholesterol-like molecules found in plants) can block estrogen receptors in breast cancer cells, possibly slowing down the cells’ growth.

Chewing on an ounce of walnuts once a day may yield the best benefits.

6. Garlic

Phytochemicals (chemical compounds found in plants) in garlic stops the formation of nitrosamines, carcinogens formed in the stomach (and in the intestines, in certain conditions).

The Iowa Women’s Health Study found that women with the highest amounts of garlic in their respective diets had 50 percent lower risk of having certain colon cancers. Garlic helps fight breast, colon, esophageal, and stomach cancers.

7. Beans

A Michigan State University study showed that black and navy beans “significantly” reduced colon cancer incidence in rats. A diet rich in legumes increases levels of fatty acid butyrate, which in high concentrations, provide a protective barrier against cancer growth.

8. Egg Yolk

Egg yolk, along with green and leafy vegetables, avocado, beans, carrots, apricots, and pumpkins, provides folic acid, a form of the water-soluble vitamin B9 which is synthetically produced and used in fortified foods and supplements. Egg yolk helps one’s deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) replicate properly and protect it during radiotherapy.

9. Oily Fish

It provides long-chain Omega-3, a powerful anti-inflammatory in the body. Oily fish also contains vitamin A, an important nutrient in the fight against cancer.

10. Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds are high in zinc and vitamin E. Zinc aids vitamin C in accelerating healing time, which is important in keeping one’s prostate healthy.
