Top 4 Cancer-Fighting Healthy Fruits You Should Be Eating Regularly

4년 전

Cancer is recognized worldwide to be a major health disease affecting millions of people each year. More than 3 million people in the United States alone get cancer each year, and as of 2012, a total of 1,562,340 deaths from cancer were projected to occur in the United States yearly.

That's really deadly.

One of the most interesting fact about dealing and fighting with cancer naturally as opposed to the conventional way is the fact that there are countless ways to go about doing it.

Physiologically speaking, one treatment might work better for a person, while another works better for someone else − and the kind of cancer involved might also makes a huge difference. But the one single gateway that nearly all natural treatments seem to have in common is diet, which is why it is very important to learn which foods exacerbate cancer and which foods help keep it at bay.

Eating this healthy fruits will help you fight cancer:

  1. Broccoli

All cruciferous veggies (think cauliflower, cabbage, kale) contain cancer-fighting properties, but broccoli is the only one with a sizable amount of sulforaphane, a particularly potent compound that boosts the body's protective enzymes and flushes out cancer-causing chemicals, says Jed Fahey, ScD. A recent University of Michigan study on mice found that sulforaphane also targets cancer stem cells—those that aid in tumor growth.

  1. Gardenia Fruit

Consumption of gardenia fruit directly inhibits a mitochondrial protein known as UCP2. This protein acts as a protector of cancer cells, shielding them from oxidative stress by inhibiting mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation. Put simply, gardenia fruit is potently anti-tumoral while exhibiting selective toxicity only against malignant cells.

  1. Apples

Procyanidins, found in apples, can induce apoptosis, or natural death, in cancer cells. Apple peel also contains compounds called triterpenoids that are highly effective in stopping the growth of cancer cells, especially those diagnosed with:

Breast cancer.

This is primarily why it is highly advised to eat the skin of apples after they are washed thoroughly

  1. Leafy Green Vegetables

Leafy greens are the cornerstone of any healthy diet since they’re exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes, yet very low in calories, fats, sodium and other toxins. Leafy greens of all kinds — nutritious spinach, kale, collard greens, romaine, arugula salad, watercress, etc. — are rich in antioxidants known to combat cancer, including vitamin C and beta-carotene (a type of vitamin A).

Fruits offer a lot of nutritional gains to the human body in the form of substances such as Vitamin C, phenols, fiber, folic acid, and antioxidants.

It is already a strongly established fact: to reduce your risk of cancer, just look no further than your fridge.
