It has been proven time and again that “what we eat is what we are”, meaning that the foods we consume have direct effects on our health and our bodies react naturally. Similarly, food can be used as medicine; it aids the body in many different ways, from boosting immunity to fighting viruses. Recent studies from prestigious labs from all over the world show that we can use food to prevent and battle even the most deadly of diseases like cancer. Here at SooperChef we have found out some foods that will help you win the battle against cancer.

1. Broccoli

Known as a cruciferous vegetable, broccoli belongs to the family of kale, cabbage and cauliflower. This green vegetable is packed with antioxidants and phytochemicals such as glucoraphanin and indole-3 carbinol which are known to reduce the risk of cervical, prostate, breast and gastric cancer. Inflammatory in nature, broccoli is a great nutrient food that is great for your bones and heart too.

2. Raw Garlic

Just like onions, leeks and shallots, garlic is a member of the allium family and is known to have potent antioxidants like allicin which is great for the removal of free radicals from your body. This nutrient-rich food is also known to boost immunity, improve brain function and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels of the body. Raw garlic is also known as a good detoxifying agent, which is why it is has been used in various herbal remedies over the centuries.

3. Berries

Berries like strawberries, blueberries and raspberries are the nature’s version of candy. They are so full of flavor that we forget to notice how healthy they are. According to a recent study, these tasty fruits not only slow down the process of cancerous cells, but also shield the body against heart related diseases and memory loss. Moreover, these tasty and colorful fruits are also good for lowering inflammation and burning off excessive fat deposits of the body.

4. Carrots

Carrots are one of the tastiest vegetables on this planet and abundant in winter season. This healthy red vegetable is an amazing source of beta-carotene that aids in prevention of cell damage and slows down the growth of cancerous cells. The presence of falcarinol and falcarindiol, which are natural pesticides, is considered to be the source of this vegetable’s anti-cancerous properties. In addition to this, carrots are great for your eyesight, skin and act as a natural Detoxifier as well.

5. Spinach

The leafy green favourite of Popeye the sailor man is also a favourite of doctors as it is one the best cancer-fighting foods right now.
