World Cancer Day 2014: What Foods Help Prevent Cancer?

World Cancer Day is celebrated each year on the 4th of February to help raise awareness and deepen our understanding of this killer disease. For World Cancer Day 2014, the campaign is set to focus on Target 5 of the World Cancer Declaration that is to reduce stigma and dispel myths about cancer with the slogan, “Debunk the myths.”

There has been quite a bit of research to validate that food acts as the most promising deterrent to fight the battle against cancer. In order to follow the theme of this year’s World Cancer day, we are addressing foods that both prevent and help to heal cancer.

Foods That Prevent Cancer

Breast Cancer: Reducing intake of high calorie foods, increasing intake of fruits and vegetables. Regular physical activity is also preventative.

Lung Cancer: Avoiding use of tobacco and staying away from environmental pollutants. Increasing intake of fruits, vegetables and beta carotene.

Stomach Cancer: Diet that is high in fruit and vegetables, particularly raw vegetables, citrus fruits, and possibly allium vegetables. High vitamin C intake and consumption of green tea is also preventive.

Oral Cancer: Incorporate green and yellow vegetables into your diet and exercise proper oral hygiene.

Foods that Help Heal Cancer

Apples: Apples contain quercetin, epicatechin, anthocyanin and triterpenoid which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties known to help lower the risk of cancer. Apples help to heal breast, lung, and stomach cancer.

Blueberries: Blueberries have great antioxidant power, due to the presence of many phytochemicals and flavonoids such as Anthocyanins, Ellagic acid and Urolithin. They are known to help decrease growth and stimulate self-destruction of breast, colon, prostate and mouth cancer.

Green Tea: Tea has been used as both a  beverage and medicine since ancient times. Green teas contain numerous active ingredients, including polyphenols and flavonoids. In lab studies, green tea has been shown to slow or completely prevent cancer in the colon, liver, breast and prostate cells.

Winter Squash/Pumpkins: Both contain Alpha and Beta carotene which is converted to Vitamin A inside the body. Studies suggest they decrease the risk of skin cancer related to exposure from the sun.

Walnuts: This nut has shown decreased damage to DNA by regular consumption and helps in breast, colon, and prostate cancer.
