It is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so lets focus on the positive!
We hear that all the time:
Focus on the positive!
It applies to our foods too.
- Focus on what we do want.
- Seek out the good foods!
Cancer Fighting Foods
Some foods have specific cancer-fighting properties and others actually stress our immune system and make us more susceptible to all cancers including breast cancer!
It really goes without saying that the cancer-fighting foods are the fresh organic vegetables that will provide you with many cancer- fighting benefits.
Specifically though, these are the top cancer-fighting foods:
- Garlic, Leeks, Onions
- Cruciferous vegetables including cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower
- Spinach, kale and other dark leafy greens
- Raspberries, strawberries and blueberries
- Omega 3 fatty acids found in flax, fish, walnuts and more…
When you seek out cancer-fighting foods your body is better able to fight disease.
Foods To Reduce – Eliminate
Foods that we should eliminate or reduce in our diet include animal proteins, milk products, caffeine, and especially sugars!
Sugar in all forms reduces your immune system. Every time you eat sugar-based products you are suppressing your white blood cells ability to destroy toxins and fight disease.
Fight Cancer With Food
While nothing will guarantee that you will never get cancer, your food choices good and bad affect your body’s ability to fight off cancer!
Focus on the foods that you do want and avoid the ones that compromise your body’s ability to stay healthy!
