The FDA has long frowned upon anyone claiming that vegetables or
cancer. It's been okay to say they "prevent"
cancer, but a cure is apparently reserved only for the realm of drugs,
surgery, chemotherapy and radiation (none of which actually cure
anything, in reality). That's why this article is so interesting: it
claims that compounds from broccoli could be used in a cure for cancer.
And it's not just broccoli, it's other foods, too: cabbage, mustard
greens, turnips and more.
Regardless of the FDA's strongly biased
opinions, the fact remains that foods and superfoods do cure
cancer. Broccoli reverses breast cancer. Carrots help reverse lung
cancer. Ginger, onions and garlic shrink tumors throughout the body.
These foods are healing foods, and they do in fact reverse serious
disease. I've often said that if broccoli could be sold as a precription
drug, it would be headline news. That's because it offers a vast array
of cancer-fighting compounds, including antiangiogenesis phytochemicals
that help "starve" tumors so they die, all without harming healthy
One thing always makes me laugh about all this research,
however: as usual, researchers are trying to peer inside the secrets of
nature and isolate the "magic" compounds that create these anti-cancer
effects. And that's the wrong approach. Instead, people should be eating
the whole foods -- the whole broccoli -- not taking lab-concocted
broccoli-mimicking chemicals sold as prescription drugs. You want to
cure your own cancer? Start eating raw or steamed broccoli (don't cook
it). And get the book Eat To Beat Cancer which tells you how to eat your
way back to health with common, everyday grocery store foods.
really isn't a mystery. You don't have to wait for science to tell you
that broccoli reverses cancer. Nature has already proven it. Of course,
it would also help if you'd stop poisoning yourself with sodium nitrite,
refined sugar, white bread, soft drinks, hydrogenated oils and other
metabolic disruptors. Your body can't heal if it's cowering under an
assault of dietary poisons and chemical toxins.
