7 Fruits That Help Prevent Cancer

26 Apr

Cancer is one of the world’s greatest health conditions that has threatened the well being of many, particularly women. It is so sad to note that many do not bother about finding preventive solution to this dreaded disease. Many instead wait to go for the curative.

But we think it pays to find better and more cost-effective ways of preventing rather than curing cancer.

We found a list of seven amazing fruits that can help in this preventive effort from Beforeitsnews.com, and thought it wise to republish it here.

Happy reading!

A diet rich in fruits and veggies can help protect against many cancers. People who eat at least four servings of fruits have a 50 percent lower risk of cancer than those who consume no more than two such servings each day. The following 7 fruits are particularly effective.

1. Avocado

Contains Lutein (a carotenoid along with Vitamin E), Magnesium, and monounsaturated (healthy) fats. Avocado helps fight cancer of the mouth, breast, and prostate, and improves skin tone. It also improves absorption of nutrients in other foods.

2. Mango

  Research found that women who eat more mango have a lower risk of breast cancer. Researchers conducted a study of polyphenols, focused on bio-active ingredients called tannins, which prevent and inhibit cancer progression. Tannic acid, which is found in mango, is a kind of polyphenol with a bitter taste. It was found that polyphenols can disrupt the cell division cycle. Grape seeds and teas also contain polyphenols.

3. Citrus
Citrus
Citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, lemon, kumquat are rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C can help prevent the formation of nitrosamine which may occur after eating processed meat. Vitamin C is good for patients with gastric cancer, laryngeal cancer, breast cancer and lung cancer.
4. Hawthorn

Hawthorn is commonly used as an appetizer to boost digestion and lower blood lipids. It inhibits cancer cell growth and is rich in vitamin C. It’s good for the digestive tract and female reproductive system cancers such as gastric cancer and breast cancer.

5. Jujube

Rich in B-carotene, vitamin C and B vitamins, this fruit contains a group of triterpenoids, an anti-cancer active ingredient. Jujube may be eaten in porridge or simmered with astragalus.
6. Kiwi

Kiwi is a powerhouse of vitamin C. It has 4-12 times more vitamin C than an orange, 3 times more than an apple and 60 times more than grapes.
7. Red Apples

Researchers found that red fruits such as red apples and vegetables protected against breast cancer in rats. Vitamins in fruits and vegetables with red skin can effectively inhibit production of cancer-promoting proteins and suppress the response of tumors to female hormones, thus reducing the risk of breast cancer.

    Great article. My husband has stage 3 pancreatic cancer and eats most of your fruits. Some other things he does is curcumin, boswellia, ginger, d-limonene, and the list goes on. LOL. Thanks again.
