Reduce Your Chances of Getting Cancer

Cancer can be caused due to many reasons and most of them are not in our control. But those that are can be implemented by us in our daily lives if we give them a little more serious thought.

The 72 trace elements

Natural agricultural produce contains 72 valuable elements that help boost our immune system, keep our organs healthy and basically aid us in living a toxin free life. However, with the unfortunate advent of processed and mass produced food, almost everything we eat has large traces of toxic chemicals. The process in which these inorganic food elements are produced also result in destroying a major chunk of the 72 useful trace elements.

The only way to restore balance in our diet is to eat healthy. Therefore, stick to organic food, brown cereals and fresh vegetables and fruits on a daily basis. Choose your food vendors carefully and do background checks if necessary to find out where they source their products from.

The good foods that need to be eaten

Everything red is good for you. This means tomatoes, red cabbage, beets and carrots are great for those who have a history of cancer in their family. Red fruits such as strawberries, watermelon and all other berries should be made a regular part of one’s diet. Garlic is another great anti-cancer food element that should be incorporated into one’s daily meals. Turnips and mustard greens are good for cancer patients too. Any other dark food such as green leafy vegetables should be made a major part of one’s diet.

The bad stuff that need to be trashed

Stopping smoking and eating good are only some of the things you can do to protect yourself from being diagnosed with cancer. But there are things that you can do to improve things even if you are suffering from it. Food products that generate heat such as garlic, ginger and onions help shrink the size of malignant tumors. If you are suffering from lung cancer, carrots can complement the treatment significantly. Broccoli is a great way to battle breast cancer.
