Plant-based fats inhibit cancer and prevent both breast cancer and prostate cancer

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Those who say all fats are bad for you are, of course, dangerously incorrect. As it turns out, plant-based fats are powerful cancer fighters, and even saturated fats from plant sources are now being shown to offer extraordinary health benefits.

If you want to prevent cancer, or you're currently battling colon cancer, prostate cancer or breast cancer, it is essential to get plant-based fats into your diet on a daily basis. What kind of plant-based fats are we talking about?

The best sources are extra virgin coconut oil, avocados, flax oil, chia seeds, peanut oil, extra virgin olive oil, macadamia nuts, walnuts, and other nuts and seeds. These should be consumed on a daily basis for anyone concerned about cancer (which should include practically everyone).

More exotic sources include spirulina, a superfood that contains GLA, one of the most important fats for countering obesity and diabetes, as well as supporting brain function. You can also take evening primrose oil, which contains GLA as well.

By the way, these oils do much more than just fight cancer: they also improve your cardiovascular health and fight weight gain and obesity. The benefits list is a long one!
