7 Foods That Fight Cancer


tomatoes' high lycopene content can protect DNA from damage that might cause breast, endometrial, lung, stomach, prostate, and renal cell carcinoma cancers.


Strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry berries contain powerful tumor-blocking compounds (phenolic acids, glycosides, and anthocyanins)


and antioxidants (ellagic acid) that slow cancer cell reproduction and prevent free radical damage.

Citrus Zest

Like oranges, lemons, and grapefruits? Great! Keep eating—don't toss out the peels. Why?

They enhance detoxifying enzyme production using a strong ingredient. 

Leafy Greens

Spinach, kale, mustard greens, Swiss chard, and romaine lettuce are fantastic greens to consume because they contain disease-fighting compounds


Though little, they fight disease well. Gamma tocopherol in walnuts inhibits Akt, an enzyme necessary for cancer cell survival, without affecting healthy cells.
