We just learnt that one of our friends has cancer.

Certainly it sadden us but this seems too common and why is it so? The fact is Cancer presents a threat in our life. This is very real

A book written by Professor Richard Beliveau and Dr Denis Ginger on “foods to fight cancer” have the following findings:

Statistic shows that one out of three people is affected by cancer before the age of 75 This represents 12 per cent of all reported deaths on Earth.

However, fear not, there is hope.

However. They put developing cancer down to hereditary factors or sheer bad luck.People fear cancer and also believe that there is little they can do to prevent it. scientific research shows that this is not the case. and that lifestyle factors such as diet can play a major role in preventing cancer Do you know. one third of all cancers are linked to poor eating habits? .

if your family line does not have any cancer history. you can further reduce the risk of cancer by another 30% by having good dietary habit. Another 30% of Cancer patients are due to poor dietary habits. if you are a non smoker. So it depends on you.The choice is yours Statistic : 30% of Cancer patients are smokers. then risk of cancer will be reduced by 30% 15% of Cancer patients are due to hereditary. then risk of cancer is further reduced by 15%. The choice is yours. .

Poor Dietary risk cancer Lower risk Higher risk Generally. . suggest that these dietary shortcomings could play a role in the higher cancer rates now afflicting the West. data has shown that individuals consuming fewest fruits and vegetables have twice the chance of developing certain cancers.

A cancerous tumor is not an instant phenomenon. .What is Cancer ? • Cancer is a disease of the cell. • The slowness in the growth gives us the opportunity to intervene to block the rebel cell from maturing into a cancer cell.000 billion cells. Our human beings is made up of 60. it is a result of a long process that take several years to form. • The growth of cancer takes a long time over many years or decades.

The good news is that a significant quantities of some AntiAngiogenesis Metronomic molecules are present in fruits and vegetables. 2) Radiotherapy and 3) Chemotherapy ( Usually done together ). • Radiotherapy ( X rays) – radiation will kill some of the normal cells too. 4) Anti-Angiogenesis Metronomic is a new approaches by attacking the tumor’s blood supply thus depriving it food. Limitations • Surgery – cannot eliminate all cancerous cells. • Chemotherapy by medication or drugs to reach cancerous cells – many side effects including hair loss or drop in immune cell. organs complication. . But anti-Angiogenesis Metronomic has to be a continuous process.Preventing Cancer Growth Common method is by destroying the cancerous tumor by 1) Surgery.

Angiogenesis –an essential process in the growth of a Tumor Chemotherapy therapy vs Anti Angiogenesis Metronomic therapy process .

before it can reach maturity. if it does grow. • Anticancer molecules present in fruits and vegetables fight cancers at the source. posing no danger to health. . • Among the many anticancer compound present in fruits and vegetables. • In this way. we should try to think of cancer as a chronic disease. Anticancer molecules present in food keeps them from progressing to an advanced stage of lethality. we will be at risk of developing cancer. one that can be controlled on a daily basis with the help of foods rich in anticancer compounds.Eating to Prevent Cancer • While it is true that the tumors that forms spontaneously in our bodies generally remain microscopic in size. However. phytochemicals are the most important. it is also true that all too often these tumors do not grow and develop into lethal end stage cancel.

phytochemicals are the most important .Anticancer compound present in fruits and vegetables.

phytochemicals block carcinogen action.Anticancer compound present in fruits and vegetables. block the promotion and progression of cancer cells .

Broccoli. such as steaming or stir-frying in a wok. Eaten regularly. . • Broccoli is by far the best source of sulphorahane ( one of the phythochemical compounds ) • Rapid or light cooking techniques. Brussels sprouts ) have an almost magical ability to fight against the development of cancerous cells in the body. Cauliflower.Cabbage • Cabbage family ( Cabbage. they are an easy way to help to prevent cancer. are simple and effective ways to maximize the quantity of anticancer molecules. Over cooking reduces the effectiveness of the anticancer molecules.

leading to cell death by apoptosis. • The molecules found in garlic and onions are also capable of slowing down the propagation of tumors by interfering with the growth processes in cancer cells. • Freshly crushed garlic is by far the best source of anticancer compounds and should be preferred over supplements (Drug). . Garlic and Onions represent one of the best documented examples of the role of plants in the treatment of diseases and maintenance of good health.Garlic and Onions • Used for more than 2000 years before Christ.

possesses a chemical structure similar to that of sex hormones and may thus interfere with the development of cancers caused by high levels of these hormones in the bloodstream.Soya • Soya Beans. • Soya plays an important role in the prevention of breast and prostate cancer. the anticancer compounds present in soya. • Studies has shown that taking soya at an early age for woman decreases the incidence of breast cancer. Soya sauce. Tofu has Isoflavones. .

• Black tea (Red tea) – resembles that of green tea.Japanese Green Tea • Green tea is an exceptional source of powerful anticancer molecules that make it a key feature of any diet designed to prevent the growth of cancer. • Brewing time matters too. except that the roasting stage is carried out and thus have very little anticancer activity. the infusion time allowed should be at least 8 to 10 minutes. • Japanese Green tea contains much more anticancer activity know as EGCG than Chinese Green Tea. . and to maximize the extraction of the anticancer compound. • Green tea undergo the least transformation of all teas.

Higher EGCG has better anti cancer compound .

and proanthocyanidins. • Eating cranberries should be preferred over drinking cranberry juice. . anthocyanidins.Berries • Most berries are an exceptionally abundant source of several classes of polyphenols that posses anticancer potential: ellagic acid.

• Omega-3s acids are naturally extremely unstable and it is preferable to use whole foods as source instead of omerga-3s supplements (Drug). linseed. Salmon. • Sardines. nuts are other sources of Omega -3 fatty acids.Omega-3s • Studies show that omega-3s reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease and in cancer prevention. . soya. • Eating fatty fish once or twice a week is one simple way of increasing omerga-3 levels in your diet.

• Citrus fruit consumption. Lemons.Citrus Fruits • Citrus fruits : Oranges. while also providing the necessary daily requirements of many vitamins and minerals. . restricting their ability to reproduce. supplies the body with an incomparable source of specific anticancer molecules. Mandarins • Studies has suggested that phytochemical compounds in citrus fruits block tumor growth by direct action on the cancerous cells. Grapefruit. whether in the form of whole fruit or juice.

including cancers and cardiovascular disease ( heart and blood vessel). .Dark Chocolate • Dark chocolate contains important amounts of polyphenols that are potentially capable of exercising beneficial effects on some chronic illness. • Milk chocolate contains less polyphenols • Substitute dark chocolate for sugar-filled junk food with no nutritional benefits.

You cannot eat just anything and then get off the hook by taking a pill.Supplement ( Drugs) • Eating whole food provides greater benefits than taking supplements. • There are no and there will no miracle cures that are able to entirely repair the damage caused by a poor diet. .

False. .False.Myth • Fruits and vegetables contain pesticide residues that causes cancer. In fact it would be better to consume many standard fruits and vegetables on a daily basis than to only occasionally eat organic foods. . the residue is present in trace amounts and no study has ever established a link between these residues and cancer. . • Only organic fruits and vegetables offer real health benefits.

chips. • Exercise regularly • Choosing to modify your diet in order to include certain foods that are exceptional sources of anticancer molecules represents one of the best weapons currently at our disposal in the fight against cancer. . soft drinks. • Avoid barbecued meats.e.Fighting Cancer Menu • Quit smoking • Lower red meat and calorie intake. The greasy drippings that fall and catch fire produce toxic substances know as aromatic hydrocarbons. hamburgers.avoid or reduce industrially process foods i. crisps.

Lemons. Cauliflower. • When you buy your fruit. . • Choose Chocolate rather than sugar. take Berries. • Drink more Soya Bean Drink or Japanese Green Tea or choose Red Wine than beer. Brussels sprouts or Tomatoes. Mandarin Oranges conveniently. Grapefruit. steam or stir-fry Cabbages.Anti-Cancer Food • Lightly cook. Oranges. • Habitually add Garlic or Onions to your cooking. • Add Sardines or Salmon to your dish. Broccoli.
