(NaturalNews) The best way to treat disease is to prevent it from ever forming in the first place. And one of the primary ways to effectively prevent disease from forming is to eat foods that are rich in disease-fighting vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants, all of which create conditions inside the body that are unfavorable for the onset of chronic illness. Particularly with cancer, which is now estimated to afflict as many as one in two people throughout their lifetime, eating plenty of foods with proven anti-cancer benefits can make all the difference in determining whether or not you will live a vibrant, disease-free life, or become just another statistic of the "sick-care" industry.

What makes this somewhat difficult; however, is the fact that much of the modern food supply has become heavily tainted with pesticides and herbicides, genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), artificial chemicals, and various other toxins that are directly linked to causing cancer. So in order to make this work, you will need to focus on obtaining 1) clean, organic, chemical-free fruits and vegetables for you and your family. Apples, lettuce, strawberries, peaches, blueberries, celery, and various other soft and porous produce items tend to retain the highest levels of chemical residues, so it is especially important to purchase organic varieties of these items. (http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/)

Since cancer requires an "acidic" bodily state in order to thrive, it is also important that you 2) eat plenty of alkaline-forming foods such as organic fruits and vegetables, mineral water, and raw almonds. At the same time, you will want to specifically 3) avoid eating acid-forming foods, which include things like processed vegetable oils, refined sugars, processed flours, coffee, and alcohol. Maintaining a proper acid-alkaline balance is something your body is already pre-programmed to do, of course, but feeding it the nutrients it needs to ensure an optimal balance is critical for thwarting cancer. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

As far as specific anti-cancer foods you can consume, 4) cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, kale, cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts are superior when it comes to blocking the formation of cancer tumors. These vegetables' sulforaphane content alone, which is even more amplified when they are eaten in sprout form, has been shown to have a prolific ability to destroy and eradicate cancer cells. A recent study out of Texas, for instance, found that sulforaphane is highly effective at treating childhood leukemia (http://www.naturalnews.com/038397_broccoli_sulforaphane_leukemia.html). Cruciferous vegetables are also loaded with other powerful antioxidants and phytochemicals that detoxify carcinogens from the body before they even get the chance to damage cells.

5) Eating organic apples every day has also been shown to help prevent cancer, as this fruit's unique combination of fiber, free radical-fighting antioxidants, and phenolic compounds kill cancer cells and inhibit their spread. Apple peels by themselves have been shown to contain at least 12 anti-cancer nutrients that protect the liver, colon, breasts, and other organs against cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/022443_triterpenoids_anti-cancer_food.html). Apple seeds are also loaded with an anti-cancer compound known as amygdalin, which is also found in almonds, peach pits, and other fruit seeds, that basically trick cancer cells into dying by releasing deadly toxins from their glucose component. (http://www.naturalnews.com/035554_laetrile_cancer_cure_cyanide.html)

Though not technically a "food," per se, 6) clean, fluoride-free, alkaline water, and lots of it, is vital for preventing cancer. Not only does your digestive system rely on a steady stream of clean water to dilute toxic compounds in the bowel and flush them from your system, but your cells also require water to stay hydrated. And since electrolyte compounds are necessary for both intracellular and extracellular hydration, adding a little bit of 7) trace mineral-rich sea salt and coconut powder to your water every day can help maximize hydration and optimize your body's physiological balance.

It also might be worth your while to 8) follow the protocols of the Gerson Diet, which was developed by the late Dr. Max Gerson for the purpose of preventing and treating cancer. As we covered recently here at Natural News, the Gerson Diet promotes full-body detoxification in conjunction with the heavy input of nutrients via juicing and the consumption of whole, organic foods (http://www.naturalnews.com/038261_Gerson_cancer_cures.html). A key component of the Gerson Diet diet will require that you 9) regularly take coffee enemas as well, for the purpose of directly flushing your liver, colon, and other vital organs of built-up toxins so they can function at full capacity. (http://www.naturalnews.com/022905_coffee_body_water.html)

For general cancer prevention in a far less regimented form, the Gerson Institute recommends abiding by its "Guidelines for General Nutrition from the Gerson Persepctive," which incorporates a diet that is 75 percent composed of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, and to a lesser extent potatoes, whole-grain breads (if you are not allergic to wheat or gluten), and organic dairy products. The other 25 percent of the diet may include foods like grass-fed meats, fish, pastured eggs, nuts, and the occasional sweet treat. (http://gerson.org)
