Did you know that we should be eating 11 portions of fruits and vegetables to help our body fight cancer cells?
There is much scientific evidence of the health benefits of diets rich in vegetables, fruit and fibre in regard to cancer, this can be attributed to the high levels of phytochemicals, some of which function as antioxidants found in these foods which supports your immune system as well as fight prospective cancer cells.
Reference - Williams and Hord 2005
It is also very important to know what nutrients your body needs so that you can support your body in keeping healthy as well as reducing the risk of certain cancers. For example, mineral balance is very important as too much sodium, as in salt, will deplete you of potassium and magnesium. This, with too much meat and dairy can cause your body to be too acidic and cancer loves an acidic body.
Also your body has to deal with a huge number of toxic chemicals in the environment, so keeping your liver clean with dandelion tea and fresh juices of beetroot and kale with carrot and apple is highly recommended to fight cancer and also energy boosting.
Did you know brassica vegetables are your friends?
You can add to your salad, broccoli, red and white cabbage, kale and raw cauliflower which are found to be the most protective of cancer. They contain sulphoraphane which helps your liver to detoxify. You need your liver to be able to safely eliminate all the environmental toxins, drugs and unwanted cancer cells that can accumulate as a toxic load to your body.
Cabbage and sauerkraut consumption provides glucosinolate and reduces risk of breast cancer when eaten in high amounts during adolescence and throughout adulthood.
