No single food can prevent cancer,
but the right combination of foods may help make a difference.
At mealtimes, strike a balance of at least
two-thirds plant-based foods
and no more than one-third animal protein.
This “New American Plate”
is an important cancer fighting tool,
according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.
Fruits and vegetables are rich in cancer-fighting nutrients
— and the more color, the more nutrients they contain.
These foods can help lower your risk in a second way, too,
when they help you reach and maintain a healthy body weight.
Carrying extra pounds increases the risk for multiple cancers,
including colon, esophagus, and kidney cancers.
Eat a variety of vegetables, especially dark green,
red, and orange vegetables.
Naturally occurring folate is an important B vitamin
that may help protect against cancers of the colon, rectum, and breast. You can find it in abundance on the breakfast table.
Fortified breakfast cereals and whole wheat products
are good sources of folate.
So are orange juice, melons, and strawberries.
Other good sources of folate are asparagus and eggs.
You can also find it in beans, sunflower seeds, and leafy green vegetables like spinach or romaine lettuce.
The best way to get folate is not from a pill,
but by eating enough fruits, vegetables,
and enriched grain products.
Cutting back on processed meats
like bologna, ham, and hot dogs will help lower your risk
of colorectal and stomach cancers.
Also, eating meats that have been preserved by smoking
or with salt raises your exposure to chemicals
that can potentially cause cancer.
Whether it’s the lycopene –
the pigment that gives tomatoes their red color –
or something else isn’t clear.
But some studies have linked eating tomatoes
to reduced risk of several types of cancer,
including prostate cancer.
Studies also suggest that processed tomato products
such as juice, sauce, or paste
increase the cancer-fighting potential.
Green tea, may be a strong cancer fighter.
In laboratory studies, green tea has slowed or prevented
the development of cancer in colon, liver, breast, and prostate cells.
It also had a similar effect in lung tissue and skin.
And in some longer term studies,
tea was associated with lower risks
for bladder, stomach, and pancreatic
Grapes and grape juice, especially purple and red grapes,
Resveratrol has strong antioxidant
and anti-inflammatory properties.
In laboratory studies, it has prevented
the kind of damage that can trigger
the cancer process in cells.
