FOODS THAT CAN FIGHT BREAST CANCER:
♥ According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, studies have shown that berries such as raspberry, blueberry and strawberry can reduce breast tumor volume by 60-70 percent.
♥ According to studies by Cornell University, vegetables such as broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower can contain phytochemicals called glucosinates that activate protective enzymes in the body that help fight off cancer. They also found that apples can decrease the size of tumors.
♥ Population studies have found that people who eat more garlic have a significantly reduced risk of breast cancer, and one study published in the European Journal of Epidemiology reported that the effect is even more powerful when garlic is combined with fiber-filled foods and onions.
♥ Olive oil is a great source of various antioxidants and phytonutrients. Oleic acid, a fatty acid prsent in olive oil, has been found to inhibit cancer cell growth, and oleocanthal, a compound found in the oil, can kill cancer cells in as fast as 30 minutes, according to an article published in the Journal of Cellular & Molecular Oncology.
