Anti-Angiogenesis: Foods That Fight Cancer

Anti-Angiogenesis: Foods That Fight Cancer

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
-Hippocrates, father of medicine, 431 B.C.

An unhealthy diet is a proven cause of disease. In fact, three out of four Americans die every year from diet related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes. So it’s exciting to see scientific research proving what natural health practitioners have been telling us for the last 2,400 years.

In his talk “Can we eat to starve cancer?”, Dr. William Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, i.e. eating foods that prevent the formation of blood vessels that tumors need to grow.

The crucial first (and best) step is eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game like: berries, cruciferous veggies, green tea, and garlic.

Eating 5-9 servings of fruit and vegetables per day greatly reduces your risk for all diet-related diseases.

The foundation of my anti-cancer strategy was consuming 15-20 servings of fruits and vegetables per day by juicing, eating my giant cancer-fighting salad, and drinking my anti-cancer fruit smoothie.

Of course food quality matters. Fresh organic produce is best.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note: I think it would be wise for cancer patients to avoid red wine and tuna, and to consume dark chocolate (raw cacao) sparingly. Enjoy the talk!
