Excerpt From Book

The food you eat has a big impact on your health. When you are dealing with cancer, it is more important than ever to eat well. Some foods are better than others when it comes to fighting cancer.

Look for food that is good for your immune system and will aid your body in its fight against the cancer cells. You will also want nutritious food to keep your body strong. Often, cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy leave you tired and ill, which can make it hard to find something palatable. Easy meals are helpful when you are worn out from the treatments. This book introduces cancer-fighting superfoods and delicious recipes.


Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Vegetables and fruits contain large amounts of antioxidants, which can inhibit cancer growth and prevent healthy cells from turning into cancer cells. Vegetables and fruits are also rich in minerals and vitamins, which are important nutrients for your body. It's a good idea to eat a range of fruits and vegetables every day to ensure you are getting enough nutrients.

Tomato Caprese

Tomatoes: Eat some chopped tomatoes in your salad or add them to a pasta sauce. These tasty fruits have great antioxidants, such as lycopene.

Cruciferous Vegetables: Cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage are cruciferous vegetables. The antioxidants in these staple foods, including indol-3-carbinol, glucosinolates and crambene, have been associated with lower cancer risks.

Carrots: Full of beta-carotene and vitamin C, carrots are good for your immune system. Make sure to eat them raw, however, as cooking will destroy the falcarinol which slows cell growth in malignant masses.

Mushrooms: Mushrooms, although not technically a vegetable, are very good for you. They contain lectin, which has been shown to kill cancer cells.
