Namely, a recent medical research pointed out the existence of 7
ordinary, and what’s more- delicious, foods and drinks which can
effectively combat cancer!
These beneficial foods do not feed
cancer cells, and on the contrary, they prevent the development of
tumors. Nevertheless, these foods and drinks are probably some of your
include red wine, tomatoes, blueberries, curry, black chocolate and
green tea. Moreover, experts even believe that they are even more
powerful than chemo!
So, which hidden qualities give them this power?
normal process of creation of blood vessels in the body is called
angiogenesis. This process is enhanced in some stages in life, for
instance, in newborns. On the other hand, this function is not often
performed later in life, only in cases such as in restoring the tissues
and capillaries in wounds.
The role of activators and inhibitor
molecules is the regulation of this process. In most cases, the
inhibitors are more important, but then the activators of angiogenesis
become necessary in order to stimulate the increased vascular cell
growth for the formation of new blood vessels.
To be more
specific, what these 7 foods do is impeding the blood supply to the
tumor cells, since they have anti-angiogenesis properties.
they need additional blood vessels in order to be supplied with
nutrients and spread throughout the body (metastasis), through the
blood. This means that their growth is conditioned by the tumor
Fully- established cancer cells release their
activators of angiogenesis – molecules that “cheat” the body and trigger
the growth of new blood vessels that supply the tumor to nutrients and
For this reason, the modern medicine has created drugs
called inhibitors of angiogenesis, and their function is completely
opposite to chemotherapy, as they do not strike cancer cells and prevent
the growth of blood vessels to the tumor.
Regarding all this,
scientists suggest that the best way is to consume these 7 foods and
thus regulate angiogenesis. By doing so, you will prevent the growth and
spread of the microscopic tumors.
Namely, the following are the foods which can inhibit angiogenesis:
are one of the most powerful foods for stopping angiogenesis. In fact,
according to a Harvard study, people who consumed cooked tomato or
tomato sauce more than four times a month, had up to 50% reduction in
the risk of prostate cancer.
This is the explanation: tomatoes are
a rich source of lycopene. This substance is anti-angiogenic, meaning
that it dissolves in the fat and is thus absorbed through the digestive
Most importantly, contrary to vitamin C, the amount of
lycopene is increased when these foods are processed under high
temperature or cooked with oil.
Furthermore, dishes with curries contain other beneficial substances as well.
wine includes one extraordinary and miraculous substance- Resveratrol.
This amazing antioxidant can be found in the skins of the grapes. Apart
from its numerous other health benefits, it also reduces the risk of
heart disease and leads to longevity.
Numerous studies claim that
resveratrol kills bacteria, viruses and fungi, prolongs the life of
animals, it improves the energy production of cells, glucose tolerance
to diabetes, eliminates the dangerous free radicals, prevents cell
damages caused by nuclear radiation, improves heart function, repairs
the damaged DNA, it improves the physical and the mental status and also
According to some testimonies red wine kill
bacteria, viruses and fungi, it inhibits cancer, increases lifespan in
animals, it increases it.
Only 225 ml of red wine delivers around
640 mcg of resveratrol. Resveratrol supplements (often combined with
extracts from grape or other antioxidants) are usually taken in doses of
200-600 mcg per day.
Research suggests that some types of red
wines such as, Pinot Noir and Bordeaux, contain larger amounts of this
Blueberries and raspberries
fruits can also be extremely effective in the prevention against many
cancers, as they reduce the oxidative stress and stop the angiogenesis.
They get their dark color from the phytochemicals, which in fact protect
you against cancers. Furthermore, they are extremely powerful in the
fight against ovarian cancer.
you can have some chocolate! You do not need to avoid sweets, even if
you are fighting against cancer. The dark chocolate is extremely healthy
and beneficial for the heart, it improves the mood and it helps in the
fight against bad cells.
Coffee and green tea
on our list are two of your favorite drinks as well, coffee and green
tea. These two can also be of great help in the fight against this
