Eat Cancer Preventing Foods To Lower Cancer Risk And Live Healthier Life

Author : Ryan Hendricks

Cancer is a devastating disease, even though we have made some progress in curing this disease but it is still seen as a terminal disease. If you want to prevent such a disease, as you grow older, you should start your prevention plan early in life with the foods that you eat. Diet can play a huge role in your overall wellbeing, as there are foods that are known to cut down your risk of developing cancer. Filling your diet with these cancer preventing foods is a great insurance policy against such deadly disease.

If you are planning your diet with cancer preventing foods, you should include five or more servings of fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Try creative ways to increase your intake of these healthy foods, such as slicing a banana on top of your morning cereal and packing carrot sticks and celery for a snack. Soups that are loaded with vegetables provide a nutritious meal, and you can quickly heat a small amount of frozen peas or other favorite vegetable to include with your meals. These simple changes can help you stay in tiptop shape.

Cancer preventing foods, such as beans and legumes, are high in fiber and phytochemicals and can protect the body from cancer. Many cancer prevention researches reveal that these naturally occurring substances can successfully slow the growth of tumors. Soy, also in the legume family, stands out in the prevention of prostate cancer, as well as cancers that inflict damage to endocrine system. Soy is readily available in many food products, including tofu, vegetable burgers, and milk substitutes.

Select foods with fiber like whole grain products, vegetables, and fruits can be beneficial staple foods in a healthy diet for preventing cancer. Fiber can also be taken as a dietary supplement but fresh and natural is a better choice. Even though fiber does not prevent and fight cancer directly, fiber in these foods can lower the cholesterol and reduces the risk of coronary disease that contributes to the conditions that may trigger cancer.

Choose lean cuts and chops of meat and restrict the amount of meat in your meals to at least one-third of your total food intake. Bake, broil, or grill meat and poultry instead of frying or greasing them to reduce excess consumption of unhealthy fat. Fish, chicken, and other poultry products are lean and can be prepared in various healthy and sumptuous ways to satisfy your appetite.

Avoid the foods that are known to harm your health, especially if eaten more regularly. These foods are; saturated fats, alcohol, and processed foods with chemicals. In addition, also avoid foods that are rich in sugar and that are high in carbohydrates as they contribute to obesity. All of these foods increase risk of catching serious diseases and may contribute to developing cancer as well. Avoiding or limiting intake of these foods and mostly eating cancer preventing foods would make a huge difference in supporting your efforts for preventing cancer.
