Recently, there was a medical research that discovered that these 7 groceries help cure cancer.
While being tasty, they also help eliminate cancer cells.
Some of them are already some people’s favorites.
Is there someone who doesn’t like black chocolate, red wine, blueberries, tomatoes, turmeric, green tea or curry?
If you consume these foods and beverages, you know delicious they are. However, it now turns out that they can also stop tumor growth, probably more effectively that chemotherapy.
How are they so powerful?
When our bodies are formed they go under angiogenesis, a stage during which our blood vessels are developed. This process doesn’t stop after our birth. It continues during our live when we get injured and have skin cuts that need healing. Then the need for rebuilding the blood canals arises.
Angiogenesis is commonly associated with cancer spread and it is orchestrated by activators and inhibitors. The focus of the researches is mainly on the inhibitors but it is the activators that promote the vascular cells growth.
These 7 groceries are actually anti-angiogenesis, and that’s why they help stop cancer growth, because they affect feeding of cancers.
Every tumor grows with the help of specific foods. The following groceries slow down the angiogenesis of the cancer thus preventing the formation of new food channels.
Cancers develop by getting oxygen and nutrient supplies through our blood. They grow fast because they discharge angiogenesis activators continuously which makes the body think it needs new blood canals.
This is the reason why cancer medications are pharmaceutically designed inhibitors. The inhibitors function is to stop the activity of the activators and stop angiogenesis. Inhibitors don’t attack the cancer cells, they just stop their growth.
These 7 foods have similar anti-angiogenesis effect and that is why they are on this list.
The red wine effect
Red wine contains a substance found in grape skins called Resveratrol, a very strong antioxidant. This antioxidant slows down aging and lowers the risks of a heart disease.
Moreover, Resveratrol also improves glucose tolerance, heart operation, energy production and mental aptitude; gets rid of free radicals, viruses and bacteria; lowers the risk of cell destruction due to radiation and repairs DNA.
You need 225 ml of red wine to provide your body with 640 mcg of Resveratrol (depends on the wine). Some sorts of wine have higher amounts like Bordeaux or Pinot Noir. If you are not a fan of alcohol, you can use Resveratrol supplements in combination with grapes.
The Tomato Effect
A recent Harvard research has showed that in people who ate cooked tomatoes regularly, there is 50% reduction of the risk of getting prostate cancer.
Tomatoes inhibit the angiogenesis and they are very effective due to their high amounts of lycopene, a substance that has powerful anti-angiogenesis properties.
Lycopene breaks down in our bodies’ fat so it is easily distributed though the body. The levels of lycopene increase when it is subjected to high temperatures. This is the reason cooked tomatoes stop cancer growth very effectively. The same applies to curry.
The blueberry and raspberry effect
These two berries are known for their anti-cancer properties, especially with ovarian cancer. They contain phytochemicals that have been proved to prevent cancer. This phytochemical is the reason for these berries’ dark color. Moreover, blueberries and raspberries have a decreasing effect on oxidative stress and angiogenesis.
Dark chocolate is very delicious and very healthy to consume. It benefits your heart condition, your happiness and fights cancer.
Coffee and green tea
Coffee and green tea are very popular drinks that decrease the risks of cancer cells growth.
The most popular benefit of turmeric is fat reduction, but it is also used as prevention for cancer.
