I’m always posting on my facebook page various foods to try and their health benefits. Dr. Oz put together a grocery list of cancer fighting foods that I wanted to share with you. I have listed the foods and where in the grocery store you can find them, but you can get the full details of each by going directly to the article, Shopping for the Cancer Cure
. I have also added a few others found in “Chef MD’s Big Book of Culinary Medicine”, and a published article “Fisetin, a Flavanol Found in Strawberries, Grapes, Mangos and Green Tea, is Antiangiogenic”,
Published online ahead of print on January 2, 2012.
Dr. Oz states, “There are cancer-fighting foods at your grocery store that contain natural substances that work by cutting off the blood supply feeding cancer cells. Without a blood supply, cancers can’t grow. This is called anti-angiogenesis (angiogenesis is the term for the process our bodies use to grow its blood vessels).”
Of course, there are many other foods, but these made the top of the list within the above mentioned sources.
How many of these foods are on your list?
Ginger – love this had to share – “The cells are tricked into digesting themselves,” explains J. Rebecca Liu, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, who has been studying ginger’s effects on ovarian cancer cells.
Many of the foods in the product section can be found in the frozen food section for less money
