(Natural News) In my household, each morning is greeted by a warm glass of clean water, organic baking soda and lemon. This keeps our bodies more alkaline/less acidic, which is critical for health. But that’s just one of many amazing foods that can help keep you free of disease, including cancer. What are some of those cancer killing foods? Natural News provides the list:
Oily fish, fish oil, flax seed oil, hemp oil, and healthy oil blend supplements provide omega-3 fatty acids (and other beneficial fatty acids), which fight inflammation and make the body less hospitable to cancer cells.
Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussel sprouts, watercress, kale, collard greens, cauliflower, bok choy, turnips, rutabagas, radishes, arugula, and more. These vegetables contain sulforaphane and other helpful compounds, which help fight tumors, breast, prostate, brain, and colorectal cancers, as well as leukemia.
Black raspberries appear to reign supreme, though all berries contain cancer fighting phytonutrients and high amounts of ellagic acid, which inhibit tumor growth.
