The Fresh Way to Fight Cancer

Optimal nutrition is very important because when we are eating well, it helps us feel better overall, strengthens us, and builds muscles, all of which supports us in tolerating the side effects of treatments for cancer. Fresh fruits and vegetables offer a boost to our immune system to hasten recovery and also decrease chances of infections. Colour your life with the goodness of nature.

The Fresh Way to Fight Cancer 

While temperate countries often have to source for fresh fruits and vegetables, natural harvests in all colours, sizes and shapes are readily available to us around the clock. So any time is right to get into the habit of adding more colour into our daily diets.

Deep, dark shades indicate that the fruits and vegetables are rich with anti-inflammatory phytonutrients including vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which have been shown to help fight chronic illnesses, prevent cancer and strengthen the immune system.

Bright and cheerful orange-coloured produce like citrus fruits, pumpkins or sweet potatoes have a great supply of phytochemicals especially carotenoid antioxidants including alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and cryptoxanthin.

The berry family is an especially potent source of antioxidants including blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries. The rich greens of leafy spinach, kale and lettuces are also chockfull of fibre and vitamins. Scarlet tomatoes contain stores of lycopene while cantaloupe melons have vitamins A and C, minerals and hydrating water.

Studies have shown that higher intake of cancer-fighting foods like fruits and vegetables, fish, and fibre are associated with a decreased risk of colorectal, lung and breast cancers. Among the most highly regarded cancer-fighting foods abundant in markets and supermarkets in our neighbourhoods include:

Leafy green vegetables – rich supplies of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes, yet very low in calories, fats, and sodium. Think spinach, kale, romaine, and watercress. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) found in leafy greens, which are made from glucosinolates, have been reported to help detox your body at the cellular level.

Cruciferous vegetables – examples like broccoli and cauliflower are powerful cancer fighters with rich stores of Vitamin C and glutathione, a potent antioxidant.

Berries – renowned antixodant rich with vitamin C, vitamin A and gallic acid, a powerful antifungal/antiviral agent that increases immunity. Berries are rich in proanthocyanidin antioxidants, capable of lowering free radical damage.

Herbs and spices – even the humblest natural ingredients hold the key to health such as turmeric that contains curcumin, proven to decrease tumour size and fight breast and colon cancer. A single teaspoon of turmeric powder consumed daily helps or in the form of supplements.
