Cancer ‘The C word”, it’s incidence is increasing by leaps and bounds and in-spite of lot of scientific breakthroughs in treating cancer we are still losing lot of precious lives because of it. The root causes of cancer are complex and multifactorial, with possible causes including: poor diet, exposure to environmental toxins, genetics, viruses or infections, high stress levels, poor digestion and nutrient absorption, and lack of physical activity. A lot of factors are responsible for causing cancer but I think my own prescription of health is less paperwork and more running barefoot through grass, staying away from tobacco and alcohol and watching what goes down south through your mouth. Experts say that we can prevent 1 in 10 cancers by just eating right. The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs but rather will cure and prevent diseases with nutrition.
Diet and Cancer :
The link between diet and cancer is complex and difficult to unravel. Inflammation is the underlying issue that dictates cancerous tumor initiation, progression and growth. Studies suggest that 30 percent to 40 percent of all kinds of cancer can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle and dietary measures! And other sources claim that this number is in fact much higher, with around 75 percent of cancer cases being lifestyle-related to free radical damage or oxidative stress This is because our diet is made up of lots of different foods and nutrients. Many of these could affect our risk of cancer.Some foods, such as red and processed meats and salt, increase the risk of developing cancer. While others, such as fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods, can help prevent the disease.
If you have cancer, diet makes you stronger than drugs :
While most people choose to turn to conventional cancer treatments like chemotherapy, radiation or other drugs, there’s also mounting evidence that cancer risk can be dramatically reduced by following a healthy diet filled with anti-inflammatory foods and controlling other factors that kick off heightened oxidative stress, also called an “immune cascade.” According to me, true healthcare reforms start in your kitchen, not in Washington. So just watch out the list below to know the best foods to avoid cancer.
