Top 10 Foods That Fight Cancer

All the studies on cancer and nutrition point to eating plant-based foods for their antioxidants, phytonutrients and other special compounds. Food is medicine against cancer when you know what to eat and what not to eat. An optimal diet with cancer fighting foods promotes cancer cell death and optimal wellness.

Food is medicine against cancer when you know what to eat and what not to eat. An optimal diet with cancer fighting foods promotes cancer cell death and your optimal wellness. Learn about a quality cancer diet to support quality of life and cancer survival. Nutrition and cancer is a necessary component of integrative cancer care.
Nutrition and cancer recommendations about cancer fighting foods to eat have been compiled based on research studies and cancer resources from Anticancer by David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD and Harnessing the Power of Your Diet Against Cancer: Report of Translational Research by Jeanne Wallace, PhD, CNC of Nutritional Solutions.

Of course, not all health problems are avoidable, but you have more control over your health than you may think. Research shows that a large percentage of cancer-related deaths are directly linked to lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking, a lack of exercise, and an unhealthy diet.

Avoiding cigarettes, limiting alcohol, reaching a healthy weight, and getting regular exercise are a great start to preventing cancer. But to best support your health, you also need to look at your eating habits. What you eat—and don’t eat—has a powerful effect on your health, including your risk of cancer. Without knowing it, you may be eating many foods that fuel cancer, while neglecting the powerful foods and nutrients that can protect you.

Aim for five to nine daily servings of all kinds of fruits and vegetables—especially the following superstars.
Top 10 Foods That Fight Cancer

Studies suggest that eating at least one apple a day may help reduce the risk of developing certain cancers like throat, mouth, colon, lung, and breast. Besides being delicious, apples contain fiber, Vitamin C and quercetin, another antioxidant-based nutrient..

However, since apples are on the Environmental Working Group's (EWG) Dirty Dozen Plus list, try to choose local and organic when possible and eat them with the skin on. That’s where many of the nutrients are found.

Helps fight: throat, mouth, colon, lung, and breast cancers.

Artichokes (and celery) contain 2 flavonoids (apigenin and luteolin) that may help to kill cancer cells or slow tumor growth. 

Even though individually, apigenin and luteolin were effective in causing pancreatic cancer cells to die in vitro, more research needs to be done to verify this within the human body.

Asparagus is one of the best food sources of the anti-oxidant glutathione, a substance researchers at the Institute for Cancer Prevention have identified as effective in warding off cancer. Glutathione is also believed to have anti-viral properties.

Research has shown that chronic, excessive inflammation and chronic oxidative stress heighten the risk for many types of cancers. Since asparagus contains many nutrients, including saponins, which have an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory property, it deserves a place in a healthy diet, along with other vegetables and fruits. The anti-inflammatory nutrients in asparagus make it an excellent dietary choice for people trying to combat diseases such as arthritis and rheumatism. It can also help prevent varicose veins.

Avocados are an excellent source of healthy monounsaturated fat, vitamins and antioxidants, making it one of the healthiest foods you can eat.

What you may not know, however, is that these super fruits also have cancer-fighting properties. In one of the latest studies, avocatin B, a type of fat found in avocados, was found to combat acute myeloid leukemia (AML), which is a particularly rare and deadly form of cancer.

The study, published in Cancer Research, revealed that avocatin B targets leukemia stem cells, which are responsible for causing most cases of AML recurrence. The avocado fat was able to wipe out the leukemia stem cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed.

Avocados are rich in glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that attacks free radicals in the body by blocking intestinal absorption of certain fats. Scientists believe avocados may also be useful in treating viral hepatitis (a cause of liver cancer), as well as other sources of liver damage.

Avocados are rich in cancer-fighting carotenoids, which are most plentiful in the dark-green portion of the flesh that's closest to the skin.

A study out of Michigan State University found that black and navy beans significantly reduced colon cancer incidence in rats, in part because a diet rich in the legumes increased levels of the fatty acid butyrate, which in high concentrations has protective effects against cancer growth. Another study, in the journal Crop Science, found dried beans particularly effective in preventing breast cancer in rats.

Some beans provide genistein from isoflavones with anti-angiogenesis activity that prevents tumors from growing by inhibiting their ability to create new blood vessels and working as inhibitors of protein kinase C, an enzyme that fosters tumor growth.

Helps fight: breast and colon cancers.

This dark-red vegetable is a super food with multiple health benefits. Beets contain anthocyanins which kill cancer cells. It also contains resveratrol, a potent antioxidant that fights cancer especially blood and brain cancer.

All berries, especially blueberries and raspberries, contain Vitamin C and ellagic acid and other polyphenol antioxidants that inhibit tumor growth. But black raspberries, in particular, contain very high concentrations of phytochemicals called anthocyanins, which slow down the growth of premalignant cells and keep new blood vessels from forming (and potentially feeding a cancerous tumor), according to Gary D. Stoner, PhD, a professor of internal medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.

According to a recent research study reported by Cancer Research 2001;61:6112-6119, rats fed diets of 5% to 10% black raspberries saw the number of esophageal tumors decrease by 43% to 62%. Research reported in the journal Nutrition and Cancer in May 2002 shows black raspberries may also thwart colon cancer. Black raspberries are rich in antioxidants, thought to have even more cancer-preventing properties than blueberries and strawberries.

Helps fight: colon, esophageal, oral, and skin cancers.

Note:  Other fruits that help to prevent and fight cancer include açaí berries, apricot (seeds), dark grapes, Goji berries, kiwi, lemons, mangosteeen, and pomegranate

Broccoli/Brussels Sprouts
All cruciferous vegetables (e.g. Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, kale) contain sulfur and other 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.

These vegetables are rich in isothiocyanates and indoles, compounds that put the double whammy on cancer by inhibiting enzymes that activate carcinogens and stimulating enzymes that deactivate them.

Bok choy, a type of Chinese cabbage, contains brassinin, a powerful cancer-fighter, which is also found in broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. 

Women take note: “No other group of foods has more scientific support for helping to prevent breast cancer,” says Jackie Glew, RD, Lead Clinical Nutritional Manager at the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Care in Skokie, Illinois.

Helps fight: breast, liver, lung, prostate, skin, stomach, and bladder cancers.

Cayenne Pepper and Other Hot Peppers
Capsaicin, an ingredient of jalapeno peppers, triggers cancer cell death by attacking the mitochondria. Cayenne pepper increases circulation (cancer thrives in poor circulation). Habanero chili peppers kill prostate cancer.

Citrus Peel: Orange, Tangerine, and Lemon Peels
All contain limonene which stimulates liver detoxification of carcinogens, anti-tumor activity, and induces differentiation (maturation of cancer cells into healthy cell types).

Tangerine peel supplies tangeritin and nobiletin, which have shown the ability to inhibit the MMP enzymes that promote the invasive properties of cancer cells.

There is no other single food that has been as well-documented as a top cancer-fighting food. The key however is to select organic carrots and juice the carrots to obtain optimum benefits.

Drinking carrot juice is one of the best ways to prevent cancer or fight cancer. According to the "Antioxidant Miracle," carrot juice provides powerful antioxidants that support health and the immune system. Eating raw or cooked carrots are great ways to obtain vitamins, minerals and even fiber, yet it would be difficult to consume enough carrots in your daily routine to meet your body's cancer prevention needs. The juice from 1 lb. of raw carrots makes one glass of juice.

Carrots contain the carotenoids alpha carotene and beta-carotene, along with potent antioxidants. Recent studies published in the "Antioxidant Miracle," indicate that alpha carotene is a more potent cancer preventative and fighter than even beta-carotene. Carrots contain one of the few carotenoids with pro Vitamin A activity, which means that the body converts the beta-carotene into Vitamin A as needed. In addition, carrots contain calcium pectate, a source of soluble fiber, Vitamin B-complex, C, D, E and K, iron, calcium and phosphorous and manganese.

From research taken from the "Antioxidant Miracle," one of the best cancer preventative methods is to juice not only raw carrots, but carrots in combination with foods that have equal cancer fighting properties such as ginger root, garlic, apples, celery, green peppers, onion, spinach and parsley. For a cleansing carrot juice drink, add a ¼-inch of fresh ginger, one peeled raw beet and half of an apple.

Authors from "Prescription for Cooking," recommend creating carrot juice cocktails that are beneficial as cancer fighters. Add to your carrots juiced collard greens, kale, parsley and spinach for additional sources of cancer fighting beta-carotene. To add more Vitamin C in your diet, add kale, parsley, green pepper or broccoli with two carrots daily. Since juicers do not juice bananas, avoid adding them to the juicer. Carrots blend well with nearly every other fruit and are as delicious as they are refreshing.

Carrots also contain an antioxidant called falcarinol that has proven to have anticancer properties. Researchers in the UK and Denmark reduced cancerous tumors by 1/3 in mice and rats with lab induced cancers.

Additionally, a human study found that consumption of carrot juice increased blood levels of carotenoids in breast cancer survivors. The researchers believe that increased carotenoid blood levels acts as a cancer preventive.

Carrot Juice Preparation
Remove the tops from the carrots. Use organic carrots for juicing to ensure that you do not introduce pesticides into your juice. Wash the organic carrots before juicing, but do not peel them. If you do not use organic carrots, wash them using a vegetable wash solution to remove pesticides and scrape the peel, if desired, before juicing. The authors from "Juicing for Life, recommend preparing carrot juice to work in combinations with other nutrient-filled vegetables, to boost nutrients to fight cancer.

Serve your juice immediately after juicing. According to "Juicing for Life," that is when the juice is at its peak for flavor and antioxidants. If you cannot drink your juice immediately, place the juice in an air-tight thermos or cover the juice and refrigerate it to slow down the oxidation. Begin and end juicing with the softest vegetables or fruits. For example, to create an cucumber-carrot cocktail, begin with half of the cucumber, then add the carrots next and end with the remaining half of the cucumber.

Cancer-Carrot Juice Testimonial:

Note: Other juices that help to fight cancer include beet juice, various green juices, mangosteeen juice, noni juice, and wheatgrass juice.

Cruciferous and Allium Vegetables
Cruciferous vegetables and vegetables from the allium family contain sulfur, which is able to penetrate the cell walls of cancer cells, which allows oxygen and nutrients such as Vitamin C to get into cancer cell and kill it.

Cruciferous vegetables contain myrosinase, a key enzyme involved in the formation of sulforaphane, which is an anticancer phytonutrient.  The myrosinase is released when the vegetable's cell walls are damaged and it converts glucoraphanin into sulforaphane. 

Thus to get sulforaphane from the diet requires the chemical reaction between glucoraphanin and the enzyme myrosinase.  If cruciferous vegetables are cooked before they are eaten, the heat destroys the myrosinase enzyme and very little sulforaphane is produced.

Scientists believe sulforaphane protects us from bacterial damage in the intestinal tract which can eventually lead to the development of stomach ulcers and cancer. Ingredients in broccoli are said to lower your risk of developing breast and (smoker's) lung cancers, as well as heart disease.

Cruciferous vegetables include Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli sprouts; and, foods from the allium family include garlic, onions, and leeks.

If you don't like to eat raw vegetables, then, you can lightly steam cruciferous vegetables. Several studies found that lightly steaming Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower or cabbage rendered the sulforaphane and glucosinates three times more bioavailable. Chop up the Brussels sprouts, cabbage or cauliflower and let them sit for a few minutes so that the myrosinase gets to work. Stick to four or five minutes of steaming. After steaming, add turmeric, curry powder, cayenne, sea salt, and/or black pepper for seasoning.

And, don't forget to add the fat (e.g. extra virgin coconut oil, olive oil) after you finish steaming the vegetables to help with the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins and nutrients.

If possible eat the garlic and onions raw. If you can't stand eating raw garlic, slice them up and let them sit for at least ten minutes before cooking. This will allow the alliinase enzyme to release alliin, which is converted into allicin, which kills cancer cells.  

Cold-water fish such as wild salmon provides omega-3 fatty acids, which act as an anti-inflammatory; strengthen healthy cellular structure, function, and communication; stimulate immune cells and function; support cancer prevention and may promote anti-cancer activity. Omega-3 fatty acids also promote brain and nervous system health.

“Omega-3s can reverse tumor metastasis as well as a tumor’s resistance to radiation or chemotherapy, and may also enhance the effectiveness and minimize the toxic side effects of some chemotherapy drugs.” Keith Block, MD, Life Over Cancer

Caution: Many fish contain high levels of toxins such as mercury. Generally, the bigger the fish, the more toxins, and the smaller the fish, the less toxins. Deep-water, northern ocean fish are best, including salmon, cod, haddock, mackerel, and sardines.

Flaxseed was commonly used in cereals and breads in the Middle Ages, but has not been a staple in the modern diet since the industrial age. It is rich in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, which may affect levels of hormones that are involved in the progression of cancer.

Flaxseed also contains a fiber-like compound, lignan, which is thought to bind to testosterone and possibly help remove it from the body. This could, in turn, help suppress the growth of prostate cancer cells.

Flax should be alternated with other ground grains, like sunflower, sesame and pumpkin, which will help to balance the omega six and omega three ratios. Pumpkin seeds have other fats in them which are likely to be particularly beneficial for prostate health.

The seeds should be freshly ground in a coffee grinder and added to your fresh vegetable juice, green smoothie or on top of a salad.

Packed with antioxidants (at least 12, including selenium), garlic has anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and anti-viral properties. Garlic also boosts the antioxidant enzymes catalase and glutathione peroxidase.

Garlic, onions, shallots, and leeks all contain various sulfur compounds, some of which have shown promise as anti-cancer operatives in in vitro studies. Various garlic sulfides protected mice from peroxidative damage and increased glutathione activity in the liver.

Some studies have shown that garlic can restrict the growth of many types of cancer cells. Garlic is particularly protective in stomach, gastric and colon cancers, although across several epidemological studies, it has been linked to reduced rates of a wider range of cancers, from lung to oesophageal.

For example, in the Iowa Women´s Health Study (USA -Steinmetz 1994) of 127 foods, tested with 41,387 women, garlic was the only fruit or vegetable that produced an effect; one or more serving of fresh garlic a week was linked with 35% less colon cancer and 50% less distal colon cancer.

In a 1998 study in China (You et al) people taking large quanties of garlic every day had less than half the cancers of those taking only a little.

The bad news is that fresh, chopped or squeezed garlic is essential. Cooking ruins garlic's effect and, in tests, most garlic pills are useless.

Although many reports talk about the active ingredient of garlic being allicin, other potential anti-cancer agents appear to be produced on cutting or crushing. They include alliin and the enzyme alliinase. It is possible that allicin works as an antioxidant, and it is certainly effective in reducing blood cholesterol levels. Allicin is also a very strong natural weapon against infection, particularly bacteria, viruses, yeasts and intestinal amoeba. By eradicating them it could help the fight against cancer in several indirect ways.

Phytochemicals in garlic  have been found to halt the formation of nitrosamines, carcinogens formed in the stomach (and in the intestines, in certain conditions) when you consume nitrates, a common food preservative. In fact, the Iowa Women's Health Study found that women with the highest amounts of garlic in their diets had a 50 percent lower risk of certain colon cancers than women who ate the least.

Animal research suggests the long list of cancer-protective compounds found in the allium family may slow the development of breast, colon, esophagus, and lung cancer, too. Look for recipes that feature garlic or onion as a main ingredient rather than as a subtle flavor enhancer to gain the most benefit.

Garlic, onions and leeks and other foods in the Allium Family enhance immune function and promote the death of cancer cells; and, help to remove carcinogenic substances such as nitrosamines and N-nitroso compounds that are created in overgrilled meat and during tobacco consumption. In addition, these foods provide sulfur compounds that help to penetrate the cell wall of cancer cells and promote the detoxification of carcinogen and cancer-promoting compounds

These foods also help to regulate blood sugar levels that reduces insulin secretion and IGF and thereby the growth of cancer cells; and, reduces blood clotting and lowers blood pressure.

Helps fight: breast, colon, esophageal, and stomach cancers.

Ginger, a cousin spice of the super anti-cancer substance turmeric, is known for its ability to shrink tumors. The subject of one study based out of Georgia State University, whole ginger extract was revealed to shrink prostate tumor size by 56% in mice.

The anti-cancer properties were observed in addition to ginger’s role in reducing inflammation as well as being a rich source of life-enhancing antioxidants.

These tart and tangy fruits in pink and red are particularly rich in the powerful antioxidants beta-carotene and lycopene.

Studies show that the phytonutrients in grapefruit called limonoids may inhibit tumor formation, and the pulp in grapefruit contains compounds that may help prevent breast cancer.

Green Tea
With nearly 200 studies against various types of cancer over the past 10 years, the catechins in green tea are proving to be especially beneficial for cancer patients. The best amount of green tea includes 3 cups daily. You can consume it iced, as well as refrigerated then used in other types of food such as soups and rice.

Herbs and Spices
Various herbs and spices provide health benefits for fighting cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Here is a list of the key herbs/spices that fight cancer.

Aloe Vera
If you thought this herb was only for skin problems and burns, think again! Aloe vera has been shown in research to have powerful immune modulating and anti-tumor compounds due to the polysaccharides in this common house plant. International Immunopharmacology showed in one study that polysaccharides from aloe vera has potent macrophage activating powers including producing greatly increased volumes of nitric oxide, which is thought to be an anti-tumor compound.

Increases our resistance to stress while increasing energy levels, freeing up the body’s systems to scavenge rogue cells.

According to research conducted on the herb, ashwagandha helps in the slowing down of the growth of the cancer cells and inhibits the growth of tumor cells without harming the good cells.

This Chinese herb is an immune system booster, known to stimulate body´s natural production of interferon. It also helps the immune system identify rogue cells.

Sometimes known as Huang Qui, this herb from China is well-known for stimulating the body’s production of interferon. It also improves the immune system’s ability to find and destroy rogue cells.

Recent research has shown that this herb has great promise in the area of AIDS and cancer treatment. Cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy who consumed astragalus more than doubled their survival times in a research study performed at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas.

The herb has shown consistent anti-neoplastic activity in research studies. It can help to shrink cancerous tumors and help to stop them from forming. There is a black salve commonly sold that help to kill sarcomas, and bloodroot is the main ingredient in this salve.

Butcher’s Broom
This herb contains an ingredient called ruscogenin, which has been shown in studies to shrink tumors and have anti-estrogenic abilities. Because of its anti-estrogenic power, this is a terrific choice for fighting breast cancer.

Cat's Claw
An adaptogen and powerful immuno-stimulant, cat's claw improves white blood cells’ clean up process (phagocytosis). Research indicates it can reduce tumor size, particularly with skin cancers. It also helps reduce the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Cat’s claw is best when combined with curcumin, astragalus, and echinacea. This tonic can reduce tumor size and is especially helpful in fighting skin cancer. This herb will also help to reduce the side effects from chemotherapy and other types of conventional cancer treatments.

Well-known for its immune boosting powers, this herb is popular for treating colds and flu viruses, but there is plenty of research to show that this herb can help those with brain tumors and improve the immune system so that the body can naturally fight cancer.

This herb acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant against certain cancer cells to slow cancer growth. Also, helps reduce the creation of new blood vessels needed for cancer growth; and, alleviates nausea from chemotherapy or radiation

Milk Thistle
Known for hundreds of years to support liver function and fight liver diseases including liver cancer, this herb has now been shown to be capable of protecting the liver during chemotherapy. Research in America showed that leukemia patients who took milk thistle had reduced liver toxicity and chemo side-effects. There is some evidence that milk thistle has its own anti-cancer activity too.

Red Clover
Research from a number of cancer centers including the Royal Marsden has shown red clover's potential as a part of a treatment program against estrogen-driven cancers, from breast to prostate. One active ingredient in the so-called Herb of Hippocrates is the anti-estrogen genistein, which Professor Powles formerly of the Royal Marsden dubbed ´the anti-estrogen´.

This herb inhibits the proliferation of cancer cells; reduces the invasion of cancer cells by blocking MMP enzymes; and, enhances the differentiation-inducing effects of Vitamins A and D.

Several studies indicate that rosemary does the following:
-- Enhances the efficacy of chemotherapy.
-- Reduces the growth of new blood vessels needed for cancer growth and metastases through high levels of polyphenols, including catechins
-- Acts as a powerful antioxidant and detoxifier activating enzymes in the liver that eliminate toxins from the body
-- Facilitates the death of cancer cells
-- Enhances the effects of radiotherapy on cancer cells in the laboratory

Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Basil, and Mint
These herbs have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to help promote the death of cancer cells and reduce their spread by blocking the enzymes they need to invade neighboring tissues. 
Oregano (along with mint, thyme, basil) contains carvacrol, a molecule that may offset the spread of cancer cells by working as a natural disinfectant. In addition, oregano contains the phytochemical quercetin, which restricts the growth of cancer cells.

Turmeric (Curcumin)
Turmeric contains the polyphenol curcumin, which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory  that enables this herb to fight various cancers.

More than any other herb, turmeric is supported by numerous studies that demonstrate that turmeric inhibits the proliferation of tumor cells and decreases inflammation; inhibits the transformation of cells from normal to tumor; helps your body destroy mutated cancer cells so they cannot spread throughout your body; helps stimulate the death (apoptosis) of cancer cells; inhibits the growth of new blood vessels needed for cancer/tumor growth (angiogenesis); and, enhances the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduces tumor growth in the laboratory.

Tip: Mix turmeric with black pepper (piperine) and olive oil to increase absorption of curcumin
Note 1: Without fat, the curcumin, has a difficult time making it past the stomach, into the small intestine, and into the blood where it can offer the greatest benefits.
Note 2: Adding black pepper to turmeric enhances curcumin’s bioavailability by 1,000 times, due to black pepper’s hot property called piperine.

Wormwood is a Chinese herb that is known to be one of the best herbs for killing a number of parasites, and it is anti-microbial and anti-fungal, making wormwood a great addition for people who need to heal their gut. In fact, wormwood has actually outperformed anti-malaria drugs in studies.

Because this herb has powerful anti-yeast and anti-microbial compounds, it can be an effective part of any anti-candida diet. Typical cancer treatments cause damaging yeast overgrowth in the body, which only adds to a cancer patients list of woes. Some cancer experts believe that excess yeast is a driving force behind some cancers, so by limiting the growth of yeast, wormwood can put a stop to cancer growth if yeast is the factor behind it.

Warning: Please be aware that some herbs may conflict with some medications. Consequently, always consult with your physician and an expert medical herbalist for clear and informed advice.

Kale is rich in many phytonutrients like carotenoid-based antioxidants and other sulfur-based compounds including indoles, which support natural liver detoxification processes and may help protect against DNA damage or inhibit tumor blood vessel formation.

Other members of the cruciferous family include broccoli, cauliflower, arugula, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. People who have diets rich in these vegetables have been found to have lower incidences of certain cancers like lung, prostate cancer and stomach cancer.

Helps fight: lung, prostate cancer and stomach cancers.

Lemons and other tart citrus fruits such as limes and grapefruit help to alkalize the body and reduce the body's level of acidity. These tart fruits contain Vitamin C, bioflavonoids, water, and other phytonutrients that help to maintain the body’s defenses and provide anti-cancer benefits.

Lemons contain high levels of Vitamin C, limonoid, limonene, citrus pectin and flavonol glycosides, which stop cell division in cancer cells, stimulate cancer-killing immune cells (lymphocytes) and break down cancer-causing substances. Lemon is also very effective for preventing acute inflammations of the gum margins, pyorrhea, and other oral diseases. 

Grapefruit contains the flavonoid narigenin, which is believed to reduce the risk of some cancers. Research has shown that grapefruit seed extract (rich in citrus bioflavonoids) is effective against some intestinal pathogens such as Candida albicans and other candida species (fungi), some E. coli (bacteria) species and Staphylococcus aureus (bacteria).

Limonoids are chemicals, which are found in citrus peels and are responsible for the bitter taste. Limonoids are capable of slowing cancer cell growth and inducing apoptosis (cell suicide). This research was conducted in labs, which have shown that it worked in vitro and on animals.

According to The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) of Australia, citrus fruits pack a powerful punch – reducing the risk of some cancers by 50 percent. These scientists report that citrus fruits are most protective against stomach, mouth, larynx and pharynx cancers.

The results of a 2001 culture study summarized in "Nutrition and Cancer," revealed that limonoid, at a concentration of 100 micrograms/mililiter, was effective at partially inhibiting the growth of human ovarian cancer cells and inducing the death of breast cancer cells.

Three years later in the "Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry,” researchers discovered three new limonoids. Two of these limonoids, obacunone and deoxylimonin, significantly reduced the number and burden of induced oral-cavity tumors by 25 to 50 percent.

Since these phytonutrients are found in the whole lemon, pith and peel included, it is best to make use of the whole lemon, especially the peel.

(Maitake, shiitake, enoki, crimini, portobello, and white button mushrooms)
These types of mushrooms have anti-tumor compounds and other types of bioactive molecules which include alkaloids, phenolics, tocopherols, folates, organic acids, flavonoids, carotenoids, and ascorbic acid enzymes.

These mushrooms stimulate the reproduction and activity of immune cells such as natural killer cells and helps to suppress cancer metastasis. In addition, these mushrooms  are  a great source of antioxidants and other nutrients that provide anti-viral support and can inhibit some malignant tumor growth. Countries like Japan and Brazil use mushrooms in cancer treatment protocols.

Numerous studies show that, when consumed over time, these types of healing mushrooms prevent tumor growth by greatly increasing the level of antioxidants in the blood, while boosting immune system levels in those which are already stricken with cancer.

In addition, these foods enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy while reducing side effects such as nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite.

Mustard Seeds
Mustard seeds are surprisingly rich in phytonutrients called isothiocyanates, which have been extensively studied for their anti-cancer benefits. For example, a study published in the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research in 2002 found that isothiocyanates can inhibit mitosis and stimulate apoptosis (cell death) in human tumor cells.

Another study published in Carcinogenesis in 2010 discovered that mustard seed powder, which is rich in a particularly beneficial group of isothiocyanates called allyl isothiocyanates (AITC), can significantly inhibit the growth of bladder cancer.  These impressive results suggest that adding more mustard seeds to our diets can prevent, and possibly even treat, the development of cancer.

Packed with thyroid-regulating selenium
One tablespoon of mustard seeds contains approximately 21 percent of our recommended daily allowance of the essential trace mineral selenium.  Aside from being an antioxidant that helps scavenge disease-causing free radicals, selenium is also responsible for transforming the sluggish thyroid hormone T4 into the more active T3. Indeed, selenium actually works alongside iodine to help maintain thyroid function.  Since a malfunctioning thyroid can wreak havoc in the body (including preventing us from losing weight), it's always important to consume foods rich in selenium as well as iodine.

Contain the anti-inflammatory compound curcumin
Ever wondered why mustard and the seeds from which it is made are usually yellow? That's because they're bursting with curcuminoids, a group of fat-soluble pigments that are also found in turmeric, ginger and other yellow-colored herbs and spices. Curcuminoids, of which the best-known is curcumin, are antioxidants that possess notable anti-cancer benefits. However, they're also potent anti-inflammatories. For example, a report published in Alternative Medicine Review in 2009 found that curcumin can ease the pain associated with inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome.

Good source of vitamins and minerals
Like most seeds, mustard seeds are a good source of varied nutrients including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and manganese. Two tablespoons of them also supply us with 6 percent of our recommended daily allowance of omega-3 fatty acids, the beneficial polyunsaturated acids required to build cell membranes in the brain.

Good-quality mustard and mustard seeds are easily purchased online or in stores. While mustard seeds can be eaten raw as a snack, their robust taste makes them especially suited to rich, cooked meals such as curries and rice dishes.

Nuts and Seeds
Nuts and seeds are extremely nutrient-dense and provide generous amounts of good fats, complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Trace minerals include magnesium, zinc, selenium and copper. Nuts also contain plant sterols, thought to help keep cholesterol levels in check and reduce cancer risk.

In addition, nuts and seeds provide various bioactive phytonutrients that help fight illness and diseases such as cancer and diabetes. These phytonutrients include Omega-3 fats, ellagic acid, flavonoids, phenolic compounds, luteolin, isoflavones, tocotrienols and lignans.  Many of these phtonutrients reduce inflammation, which fuels and triggers most cancers. Furthermore, the unsaturated fat in nuts and seeds reduces risk of breast and other cancers.

Some of the healthiest nuts include:
Almonds contain magnesium, vitamin E, selenium and lots of fiber.; and, help to lower cholesterol and help prevent cancer. Research shows that almonds help to lower blood sugar and raise the levels of good bacteria that bolster the body’s immune system.

Brazil nuts are a good source of protein, copper, niacin, magnesium, fiber, vitamin E, and a great source of selenium, which may help prevent certain cancers, including bone, prostate, and breast cancer. A recent study in the Journal of Medicinal Food suggests that the selenium found in Brazil nuts, along with soy, may help fight prostate cancer by inhibiting the growth of cancerous cells.

Walnuts are extremely good for your heart and brain, and contain ellagic acid, a cancer-fighting antioxidant.

Note: Other healthy nuts include hazelnuts, pecans and pine nuts, which contain Vitamins A, B, D, and E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium, B vitamins, and zinc. And they help lower cholesterol.

Some of the healthiest seeds include:
Apricot seeds (aka Apricot kernels), Apple seeds, and other bitter fruit seeds contain amygdalin aka Vitamin B17 which has incredibly powerful anti-cancer properties.  The pharmaceutical Laetrile which is a concentrated form of Amygdalin has been used in cancer clinics outside the U.S. for over 50 years.

Flax seeds are definitely at the top of my list. Two tbsp of ground flax seed per day is ideal and easy to add to oatmeal or smoothies. I also take Barleans Cold-Pressed Organic Flax Oil because it is the best source of parent omega-3s (better than fish oil) and Lignans, super anti-oxidants that help fight cancer. It also contains a lot of fiber and can reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. 

Hemp seeds are a certified superfood with cancer and heart disease prevention properties. They are high in protein and fiber, with balanced omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. 

Sesame seeds are a good source of calcium, magnesium, zinc, fiber, iron, B1 and phosphorus.  They can lower blood pressure, and protect against liver damage. Sesame seeds have also been linked to prevention of many diseases like arthritis, asthma, migraine headaches, menopause, osteoporosis, and may even reduce PMS symptoms.

Other healthy seeds include chia, hemp, sunflower and pumpkin seeds -- all contain omega-3 oils, Vitamin E, protein, anti-oxidants, calcium, and fiber.

Note: Cashews and peanuts are not recommended for cancer patients due to potential levels of fungus.

Two of the most important types of chemicals in onions are flavonoids, which are responsible for their red, yellow, and brown colors, and organosulfur compounds, sulfur-containing constituents that impart the strong flavors.

A key property of onions and other members of the onion family is their ability to help prevent and manage a variety of cancers, as research has revealed. A study of French women found that those who consumed more onions and garlic had a lower risk of breast cancer.

The combination of the flavonoid quercetin—which occurs abundantly in onions—along with curcumin (an ingredient in turmeric) has a profound effect in adults with colon cancer risk. The nutrient combination dramatically reduced the number of polyps characteristic of the disease—an important finding, since these polyps often precede colorectal cancer.

Furthermore, several studies indicate that onions can effectively prevent stomach cancer, which is the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. The protective effects of onions have also shown promise in esophageal cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian, kidney, and oral cancers.

In addition to healthful flavonoids and sulfur-containing compounds, onions contribute potassium, vitamin C, folic acid, zinc, selenium, and fiber to the diet.

Papaya Leaf Extract
A study conducted by University of Florida researchers Dr. Nam Dang and colleagues in Japan has documented papaya’s powerful anticancer properties and impact against numerous lab-grown tumors – and without the negative consequences of chemotherapy. The researchers used papaya leaf extract for the study conduction, with the anticancer effects being even stronger with a larger dose of the extract. What’s more, the extract can be taken for a long time without nasty side-effects.

Another study also shows how papaya leaf extract is able to fight various cancers including cervix, breast, liver, lung, and pancreatic while aiding the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems.

Paw Paw
Paw paw (also called graviola, soursop or guanabana), is a tropical fruit with a white, fibrous pulp that is rich in Vitamin C and other nutrients, including vitamin B-6, thiamin, riboflavin, folate and niacin.

Unlike many tree fruits, paw paw is a rich source of minerals. Each cup provides about one-seventh of the magnesium, one-eighth of the potassium and one-tenth of the phosphorus you need each day.

Paw paw may offer benefits to people with some forms of cancer, according to researchers who published a study in "Nutrition and Cancer" in 2011. They found that breast cancer patients who took 200-milligram doses of paw paw extract for 5 weeks experienced inhibited growth of their tumors. University of Nebraska researchers, who published a paper in "Cancer Letters" in 2012, also concluded that paw paw extract appeared to stop cancer from spreading and even to shrink existing tumors.

Research by Dr. Jerry McLaughlin of Purdue University found that the paw paw tree is a source of substances known as acetogenins. (Since the family Latin/scientific name of paw paw is Annonacea, these natural substances are often referred to in the literature as Annonaceous Acetogenins). It is these acetogenins that he found to drastically reduce the ATP production of the cells' mitochondria.

Acetogenins modulate/reduce the production of cellular energy (ATP), thus robbing the cancer cells of the energy it needs to survive and grow. Unlike chemotherapy, the paw paw works to "starve" the cancer cells instead of poisoning them. Thus, the action is usually slower than chemotherapy, but, the side effects are minimal.

Note 1: There are several different acetogenins. They vary from species to species of trees within the "paw paw family", and within other related trees. However, Dr. McLaughlin found that the highest concentrations and most powerful acetogenins were in the Asimina triloba species of the paw paw. Furthermore, he found that there were even differences in the actual geographical location of the trees--noting during his research that some groves of trees were more potent than others.

Note 2: Acetogenins enhance the effectiveness of chemical medical treatments. It is very common to hear that cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy develop a resistance to the chemo itself, thus rendering the treatment to no effect. This is usually called Multiple-Drug Resistance (MDR). This resistance takes place because cancer cells will develop the ability to recognize and reject chemicals that it becomes familiar with. The cells will actually develop a "pumping action" to pump the chemicals back out of the cells before the chemicals have their desired effect. However, this pumping action used to reject the chemicals uses ATP. Lowering ATP to these cells reduces their ability to pump out the chemotherapy drugs, thus making the cells susceptible to the chemotherapy treatments again. Several technical articles have been written on the effect of paw paw on MDR cells.

Note 3: Some companies have produced products using graviola (a biological cousin of the paw paw) and market them as similar to--or equal to--paw paw itself. However, Dr. McLaughlin showed this to be false. He has written several technical papers detailing the big difference chemically and structurally between the acetogenins found in graviola and those found in paw paw. Dr. McLaughlin developed a procedure to standardize extracts from paw paw to contain a certain known amount of acetogenins, and licensed it to a company in Utah. Thus, it is important for anyone contemplating using the paw paw treatment to be sure that a standardized extract from the Asimina triloba tree is obtained--not graviola, since graviola is far less potent due to its chemical structure.

Quinoa (keen-wah) is a great source of protein. It’s naturally gluten-free and often called an ancient grain because it’s been grown for thousands of years. Quinoa is actually a seed that can be ground into flour. It is considered a complete protein, which means that it contains all nine essential amino acids, just like meat. Quinoa is also rich in fiber and minerals like iron, magnesium and calcium plus phytonutrients like quercetin, an antioxidant that we just learned is also found in the skin of apples.

Quinoa is a nice alternative to protein-rich foods like meat and fish. Other alternatives include lentils, beans, nuts, seeds, and other whole grains.

Helps fight: colon cancer.

Not all cruciferous vegetables are dark, leafy greens. Radishes are root vegetables, but like their cruciferous relatives broccoli, cabbage, and kale, they have cancer-fighting properties.

They also contain impressive amounts of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and fiber. Radishes have a mild to spicy flavor, and they are delicious sautéed in extra-virgin olive oil with minced garlic and other vegetables.

Note: Because root vegetables absorb pesticides and other chemicals in the soil, make sure that you only eat organic radishes.

Seaweed foods such as Nori, kombu, wakame, arame, and dulse stimulates immune cells such as T-cells and natural killer cells and help to inhibit tumor growth.

These foods help reduce the formation of new blood cells needed for cancer growth (angiogenesis) and also act as an anti-inflammatory to reduce inflammation, which fuels cancer and other systemic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

Selenium-rich Foods
Brazil nuts, tuna, sunflower seeds, oysters, Shiitake mushrooms, and vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, spinach) are vital to immune system function and help to keep your thyroid functioning properly. Selenium works in conjunction with vitamin E, vitamin C, glutathione and vitamin B3 as an antioxidant to prevent free radical damage in the body and may help prevent cancer by affecting oxidative stress, inflammation and DNA repair, especially breast cancer and prostate cancer. .

Herbal sources of selenium include burdock root, alfalfa, fenugreek, fennel seed, catnip, chamomile, garlic, cayenne, nettle, oat-straw, yarrow, peppermint, sarsaparilla, lemongrass, ginseng, hawthorn berry, rose hips and raspberry-leaf.

Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes and yams are other foods that can be enjoyed year round. They are rich in phytonutrients called carotenoids, such as beta- and alpha-carotenes. Including even small but consistent amounts of carotenoid-rich foods may help reduce the risk of breast cancer, lung cancer, and ovarian cancer. Other foods rich in carotenoids include carrots, acorn or butternut squash, and pumpkin.

Carotenoids stimulate the growth of immune cells and increases their capacity to attack tumor cells through lutein, lycopene, phytoene, and canthaxanthin. With over 600 carotenoids available in the diet, Vitamin A, beta carotene, and lycopene all have demonstrated growth against cancer cells.

Note 1: Given the latest research that says that our bodies may not be converting the carotenoids to Vitamin A, it may be necessary to add food sources (such as cod liver oil or beef liver) that provide real Vitamin A -- especially to fight cancer.

Note 2: Phytonutrients like carotenoids are available in pill form but they do not have the same protective properties as those found in whole foods and may even cause harm in certain individuals. To get the healthiest boost, it is best to eat the food versus taking these nutrients in a pill.

    Helps fight: breast, lung and ovarian cancers.

    This juicy fruit is the best dietary source of lycopene, a carotenoid that gives tomatoes their red hue. The lycopene is best absorbed when the tomato is cooked and includes a healthy fat like olive oil or avocado, packing more of a nutritional punch.

    And that's good news, because lycopene was found to stop endometrial cancer cell growth in a study in Nutrition and Cancer. Endometrial cancer causes nearly 8,000 deaths a year.

    Helps fight: endometrial, lung, prostate, and stomach cancers.

    Among the most currently researched of cancer fighting foods, turmeric has repeatedly been shown to be an effective cancer-fighter and even block cancer growth. Previously found to reduce tumors by an astounding 81%, the naturally occurring compound found in turmeric, curcumin, exhibits numerous anti-cancer properties.

    Researchers at UCLA found that curcumin is the component harnessing the ability to actually block cancer growth. Not surprisingly, the cancer-fighting ability that turmeric possesses makes up only a single facet of the many benefits of turmeric.

    Note: The biggest problem with turmeric as a supplement is its bioavailability and your body's ability to absorb the nutrients. Make sure that you add some fat and black pepper to increase your body's absorption of the curcumin in the turmeric.

    Their phytosterols (cholesterol-like molecules found in plants) have been shown to block estrogen receptors in breast cancer cells, possibly slowing the cells' growth, says Elaine Hardman, PhD, associate professor at Marshall University School of Medicine in Huntington, West Virginia.

    Helps fight: breast and prostate cancers.

    Wheat Grass
    (And, other Super-Green Foods: Chlorella, Spirulina, Blue-Green Algae and Barley Greens)
    These chlorophyll-rich foods  help nourish the blood by providing oxygen and chlorophyll for detox purposes. These super greens chelate and remove excess copper from the body, which may help inhibit angiogenesis.

    Specifically, wheat grass has been shown to fight breast cancer, prostate cancer and several other cancers. Studies indicate that chlorella boosts energy and possibly prolongs survival.

    Whey Protein
    Whey protein helps to fight cancer because it helps our bodies increase our glutathione levels and it provides an easy-to-digest protein that helps the body rebuild and repair its cells due to the damage from the cancer.

    Glutathione (GSH) is a small protein composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. It is involved in detoxification of the liver and the body. Glutathione binds to toxins, such as heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides, and transforms them into a form that can be excreted in urine or bile. Glutathione is also an important antioxidant, counteracting the effects of free radicals produced in the body by oxidation reactions from cancer cells and other damaging functions such as cellular inflammation.

    Glutathione, better known as the ‘master’ antioxidant, helps to neutralize free radicals inside our cells. Over 40,000 papers on its effects were published in 2010.  Vitamin C and E depend on its presence to function fully. Glutathione is also an immune system booster that helps T-cells to function properly.

    Glutathione helps to increase energy levels within our cells. German work stemming from a 1998 Nobel Prize has shown that toxic cells lose their energy-producing ability and ´power down´. Below certain levels of power, protective genes cannot work. Glutathione levels seem to be very important in keeping cellular energy high. Some alternative cancer therapists focus on low glutathione levels found in the cells of cancer patients, trying to drive them, and thus oxygen levels, upwards.

    Glutathione is a terrific cellular detoxifier, helping to break down the adverse effects of environmental toxins, from heavy metals to tobacco smoke and diesel fumes. It is produced in all cells of the body, specifically to break down these dangerous toxins and free-radicals.

    Glutathione also works in the gut, in the blood stream and in the cells. Its particular strength is with peroxides, the precursors of free-radicals, and also with bad fats.

    Besides high-quality whey protein, other foods that help to increase glutathione levels include green vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli along with avocado, asparagus, chlorella, wheatgrass, grapefruit, strawberries, raw tomatoes, and oranges.

    High-quality whey protein provides many health benefits including, immunity, cell energy, muscle strength, and antioxidant support.

    High-quality whey protein  contains lactoferrin, which is a cancer killer. Lactoferrin activates the innate immune system cells like the macrophages, neutrophils  and T-cells. These are the first line of defense against harmful pathogens – including cancer cells.

    Lactoferrin has antiviral, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties (Rodrigues et al. 2009, Kanwar and Kanwar 2013).

    Cancer cells have a highly negative membrane charge which attracts lactoferrin, while healthy normal cells have a neutral charge. Lactoferrin is attracted to the cancer cells, attaches to them and triggers a process that kills the cancer cell; as well as blocking angiogenesis – the growth of blood vessels that feed cancer cells.

    More specifically, lactoferrin inhibits cancers (Parodi 2007, Rodrigues et al. 2009, Tsuda et al. 2010, Pepe et al. 2013). Research shows that consuming lactoferrin inhibits cancer carcinogenesis, proliferation and metastasis (Tsuda et al. 2010).

    A component of  lactoferrin LfcinB, is able to specifically target cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Cancer cells have a highly negative membrane charge which attracts  lactoferrin, while healthy normal cells have a neutral charge (Burdick et al. 1997). Lactoferrin is attracted to the cancer cells, attaches to them and triggers a process that kills the cancer cell. In addition:
            Lactoferrin triggers cancers cells to commit suicide; this process is called apoptosis.
            Lactoferrin inhibits the formation of blood vessels in tumors. Formation of blood vessels is called angiogenesis and is needed for cancer growth. Tumors need a steady supply of blood to deliver nutrients to their inner cells. Without a blood supply tumors remain small and relatively harmless.
            Lactoferrin modulates carcinogen metabolizing enzymes.

    Note 1: Lactoferrin triggers the production of glutathione, which, according to one study, was responsible for preventing the development of prostate cancer. In addition, a clinical study with cancer patients showed a regression of patient’s tumors when given whey protein at concentration levels of 30 grams per day.

    Note 2: Researchers, at Lund University in Sweden, reported that alpha-lactalbumin proteins found is whey solid have the ability to kill all the known types of breast cancer cells – even at low doses. In fact, their peer-reviewed paper – published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry suggested that when consumed by the body, alpha-lactalbumin is configured into a protein that selectively induces apoptosis (programmed cancer cell suicide) in cancerous tumors.

    Note 3: Another key to lactoferrin’s cancer-fighting properties is its amazing ability to bind with iron. It forms a bond with iron that’s 100 times stronger than transferrin – your body’s major iron transport protein. Several studies suggest that excessive amounts of iron, in your diet, increase your risk of developing certain types of cancer. Researchers have shown that many chronic diseases – in particular, cancer – need iron to reproduce and grow.

    Note 4: Loss of muscle and fat tissue – due to chronic conditions like cancer, AIDS and mercury poisoning – is called cachexia. For cancer patients, this is often why they succumb to the disease. Fortunately, by drinking a green smoothie that contains high-quality whey protein – every day, cancer patients have an easy way to enhance lean muscle mass and boost their energy.

    So, what is a high-quality whey product? Key attributes include use of pasture-fed cows or goats, easy-to-digest (medium-chain triglycerides (MCT)), cold-processed, rich in healthy fats such as CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), no GMOs and whey protein concentrate, not protein isolates.

    In addition, a high-quality whey is free of toxic heavy metals (e.g.  mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic) and is low glycemic, low carb and does not contain any artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohol, glycerin, fructose, sugar or gluten.

    Other Foods
    Some of the other foods that provide cancer-fighting benefits include almonds, anise, ashwagandha, basil, bee propolis, black pepper, boswellia, beta glucan, caraway, cardamom, chili pepper, cinnamon, clove, coriander, cumin, curcumin, fennel, fenugreek, figs, flaxseed, garlic, ginger, gooseberry, gruggul, Holy basil, honey (raw, manuaka), lemongrass, licorice, mace, mango, mint, mustard seed, nutmeg, onion, oregano, parsley, pecans, pomegranate, prunes, resveratrol, rosemary, saffron, sesame seeds, strawberries, and  tamarind.

    Note: No one food offers a golden ticket to fighting cancer, but a meal plan that includes at least eight of these “cancer-blocking” foods offers the strongest protection and contributes to overall health.

    General Information
    Nutrition must be optimized for efficient detoxification and to change the body's acidic environment to alkaline. The diet must be based upon whole foods (plenty of vegetables, fruits, and fiber) and should emphasize foods with a net alkalinizing impact with lower amounts of acid-forming foods.

    Generous portions of cruciferous vegetables should be eaten daily, along with modest amounts of olive oil, as well as onions, garlic, and very modest amounts of lean, unprocessed proteins.

    If possible, eat only organic vegetables and fruits. If you can't afford to buy all organic, then, focus on buying organic the primary vegetables that eat during the week.

    Supplements can include CoQ10, aged garlic, pancreatic enzymes, beta glucan, essential fatty acids (DHA/EPA), N-acetylcysteine, lipoic acid, and antioxidant support (vitamins C and E, grape seed extract, green tea extract).
