Ever since it was found out, people have tried to find out its root and cure. However the best way to fight and prevent it, is by consuming proper food.
The fantastic 7 are the red wine, tomatoes, blueberries, curry, black chocolate and green tea. Even though personally I do not think that alcohol can help in preventing or curing anything, red wine is for some reason praised because of the Resveratrol, which is good but still very little if you have a glass of wine. Then again you need to drink a lot of wine to obtain the needed amount of this ingredient… so you figure it out…
Surely the other six are for real great in every way. Even better than chemo therapy.
Why are they so good?
In short- they disable the blood supply to the tumor cells. When there is no blood supply, they stop growing and die. This is also called anti-angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is a process of blood vessels creation in the body. This process has different periods of producing blood vessels. In newborns it is fast, in adults it only starts after being stimulated by open wounds when tissues and capillaries need to be reproduced or rejuvenated. Activating and inhibiting molecules organize Angiogenesis. The Activators start it and the inhibitors stop it. There are more inhibitors than activators.
Cancer cells have developed a superb feeding system. They have activators of Angiogenesis which make blood vessels reproduce and feed the tumors. So we feed them instead of going against them .This is how the cancer cells get oxygen and food.
There are drugs that prevent Angiogenesis and blood supply to the tumor cells, not going against the cancer cells.
The main thing here is to regulate Angiogenesis with food, less drugs. This means that specific food helps destroy tumor cells in their early stage of growth.
A Harvard study for prostate cancer concluded that men who consume cooked tomato more than four times a month have less chances to have prostate cancer up to 50%. The tomatoes being high in Lycopene prevent Angiogenesis. Good thing about Lycopene is that it is dissolved in fat and therefore it is well absorbed in the intestines.
Unlike Vitamin C, Lycopene is a substance that does not get reduced or destroyed when cooked. In fact it grows even when cooked with oil in high heat.
Turmeric- curry food– The healthiest fat burning food ever.
Resveratrol is a great antioxidant that is found in the grape skin. It is highly effective in treating heart problems. It is a Polifenol that prevents free radicals, restores DNA, kills fungi and bacteria, promotes a healthier state of mind and wellness. Rejuvenates cells damaged by radiation.
A glass of red wine contains 640 mcg of Resveratrol . Taking Resveratrol in supplements is maybe even more useful because it is combined with grape seed which makes it even more effective. Not necessarily you have to drink to take Resveratrol. It is a choice.
In the drink section against angiogenesis we must mention Green Tea and Coffee too.
Blueberries and raspberries
The greatest antioxidants that strongly fight cancer and protect from it, are berries. They inhibit angiogenesis and oxidative stress. They are very important in fighting Ovarian Cancer.
It’s the allowed sweet that helps you fight cancer.
