Food that fights Cancer and food that causes Cancer.

Let food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food

A typical western diet promotes cancer because of processed food, and most of these foods contain a high proportion of fat, salt and or refined sugar. Those 3 items are known contributors to cancer. Faulty nutrition is singularly the most causative factor in the development of cancer.


Our natural food is medicine we take when we’re well, in order to stay well and to build up our resistance to all diseases which includes cancer. “We are what we eat,” and we need to eat freshly grown food everyday.

So to the food that has the ability to fight cancer?

All cruciferous vegetables and they are cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.
Members of the allium family and they are garlic, onions shallots and chives.
The spice turmeric which is responsible for the yellow colour in curry powder.
Green tea but not black tea.
All berries, especially blueberries.
Citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges, grapefruit and mandarins.
Grapes which contain resveratrol, it’s also in red wine.
Omega 3 fats which are in off shore fish like tuna, sardines, mackerel, salmon, and also in flax seed, soy products and nuts.
Tomatoes, which have been described as “the prostates best friend.”
Chocolate, but only dark chocolate and in small quantity.

While it is important to maintain a healthy diet, it is just important to eliminate the food that is known to contribute to cancer. People in the past have mostly eaten raw, natural and organic food which is and entirely different concept than we have today. That’s why there is so much cancer today.

They are.

Marinated food.
Smoked food.
Pressed meats, as they contain the food additives sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite.
Fried food.
Processed food.
Red meat, in excess.
Alcohol, in excess.

Remember it’s the body that heals and that is through the immune system, but it does need the correct food to help. The most efficient healer we have is a correctly functioning natural immune system. Also forget supplements, fancy marketing and unnecessary expense to you. Let food be your medicine.


If you are going to fight cancer your body needs all the nutritional support it can get and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables is a great way to start.
