Broccoli and tomatoes prevent prostate cancer better than leading prescription drugs, research shows

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Want to know how to beat prostate cancer? Your physician will probably tell you to take prescription drugs. That's the no-brainer answer from a professional who has been all but brainwashed by the pharmaceutical industry.

But the real answer is far simpler and a lot less expensive: eat large quantities of broccoli and tomatoes in combination. Exciting new research proves that this simple food combination actually beats prostate cancer drugs -- but only when these foods are eaten in combination.

Nutritional supplements aren't the same, either: you won't get the same effect from taking lycopene and broccoli extracts. You have to eat the fresh foods, and you'll get your best results by eating them raw.

There's more good news: these powerful healing foods are effective against far more than just prostate cancer: they also prevent and even help reverse breast cancer, colon cancer, leukemia and other cancers of the body. In fact, they're two of the foods listed in the highly recommended book Eat To Beat Cancer by J. Robert Hatherill.

If these simple food combinations are so powerful against cancer, then why don't doctors tell their patients about them? Sadly, few doctors have even a fundamental understanding of nutrition, and it's rare to find a practicing physician who keeps up with the latest news on nutrition research. In med school, doctors are primarily taught drugs, drugs and drugs, not nutrition. So they automatically think that drugs, not foods, are the answer to treating chronic diseases like cancer.

But they're wrong. Prescription drugs are not needed at all: not for lowering cholesterol, not for fighting cancer, and not for lowering blood sugar in diabetics. All the healing you'll ever need is found in plants, foods, herbs and superfoods. You don't need to take a single prescription drug in your entire life if you stick to healthy nutritional habits in the first place. And it's the simple things that are so powerful: broccoli, tomatoes, onions, ginger, garlic, and so on. These are potent healing foods -- far more potent than any prescription drug -- and they're available at a fraction of the cost.

So stay healthy: choose healing foods that prevent disease and support optimum human health. Avoid all processed foods and cancer-causing ingredients like sodium nitrite. Your body will thank you for it!
