5 Cancer Preventing Foods

Monday, September 13, 2010

I was just watching a Dr. Oz show and thought I’d share. He had another doctor on the show, Dr. William Lee, apparently, he has had huge breakthroughs in cancer prevention. They have found certain foods that will actually help prevent cancer. I’m not going to go into great detail as to why it does, but I will give you the breakdown. There are cells that flow through our body that are Androgenic cells. If you starve these cells, then they do not grow. They said that most people have these cancer cells running through their bodies and don’t even realize it.

This hits pretty close to home because my dad has had cancer twice, my aunt, grandmother, and grandfather have all passed from cancer. I called my mom immediately and told her to add these foods to their diets.

Here is a bit of information about each food and how much you should eat each week:

Bok Choy – Type of Chinese cabbage that contains a molecule called brasenine that is an anti androgenic - 3 times a week ½ cup each time

Cooked tomatoes – Contains Lycopene this is an Anti Androgenic molecule– Heat with olive oil for ½ an hour. ½ cup 2-3 times per week

Flounder, Halibut, and Salmon– Rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and have anti androgenic s– 3 6oz servings per week

Strawberries – High in anti oxidants and some of the anti oxidants in these fruits do double duty and produce anti androgenics , also. Mostly in the seed of the strawberries – Eat 1 cup of colorful fruit daily

Artichoke –They are actually a flower and the heart is a little bit of the bud and there are at least 3 different anti androgenic molecules - ¼ cup of artichoke per day

    I wouldn't mind eating any of those foods but might find it difficult to do in the recommended frequency. I'm sure just making it a goal to include more of them in my diet would be a good start though. Thanks for sharing!
