Cancer-fighting Food & Diet

To begin with, I must warn you that a dramatic change in your diet can dump dangerously large amounts of cellular waste into your blood stream, therefore you must detoxify your system before and during the initial stages of your diet. See link below for free cleansing diet (5 days)

A low fat diet lowers "bad" estrogen levels in women. Organic, unprocessed or minimally processed foods is the way to go. The Mediterranean diet is high in oil (not fat) and breast cancer rates are lower there. So it is not just fat, but the types of fats/oils. Olive oil contains essential acids as does flax oil.

A special note on sugar: CANCER LOVES SUGAR. (Ensure inc.)

Basic Food Combo rules:
Eat veggies with carbohydrates or with proteins, but never mix proteins with carbohydrates (no meat and potatoes). Meats should never be cooked in fats.

Fruits & Veges which get a thumbs up:
Fruits: Blueberries, Blackberries, Strawberries, Cranberries, Grapes, Cherries, Apples, Melons, Oranges, Avo's, paw-paw, mango's, pineapple and Pomegranates.
Vegetables: Broccoli, Spinach, Asparagus, Red Peppers, Peas, Beets, Tomatoes, Carrots, Squash, Pumpkin, Sweet Potatoes, Cabbage, Onions, ginger, Beetroot, Mushrooms and Garlic.

Tea lessens the risk of some cancers and may even slow some cancer cell growth. Honey Bush Tea is great and an anti-oxidant. Otherwise, Green, white, and red teas are best.

Choose Good Protein Food at Every Meal
Eat more fish. Poultry, and eggs are good protein sources.
Limit eating red meat.
Eat dairy products like yogurt, milk, and cheese.
Eat more legumes, lentils, and nuts.

Exercise Regularly
Exercise lowers the risk of cancer and may decrease the risk for some cancers to recur.
There are many factors that affect the amount and the kind of exercise you should do. There are times during treatment when certain exercises may not be advised. Check with your doctor before starting an exercise program.

Life needn't be boring as hops is a great cancer fighting agent. So have the occasional beer!
