Cancer has become the most dreaded disease in the modern world. Any person who is suffering from cancer loses all hope of survival if modern, expensive treatments fail to deliver the desired results. But there are certain foods that can help resist the growth and spread of cancer in the human body. A recent study by City of Hope Cancer Center near Los Angeles shows that five superfoods namely mushrooms, blueberries, pomegranates, cinnamon and grape seed extracts can fight cancer effectively. These foods can be obtained at any superstore and are available throughout the year.
It has been seen in the study that white button mushrooms work to slow the growth rate of breast cancer tumors. They target a protein enzyme called aromatase that is responsible for triggering breast cancer tumors. Similar activities from white mushrooms have been witnessed in cases of prostate cancer also. So, eating mushrooms can be helpful in preventing cancer cells to grow or spread. Blueberries are reported to play important roles in preventing cancer. Some compounds in the fruit work to shrink the size of the tumors in breast cancer. They prevent breast cancer cells from multiplying and even from surviving.
Pomegranate is another superfood that can be used to fight cancer. It contains six substances that can curb aromatose which fuels breast cancer. It is also useful in other forms of cancer such as colon cancer. Cinnamon which has long been used as an ingredient in foods and medicine has certain properties that fight cancer. It gives rise to a process called angionesis that blocks a protein which tumors utilize to keep blood flowing to the affected glands. Thus, cutting the blood supply to the tumors; cinnamon prevents their growth and survival.
Grape seed extracts are now known to be efficient cancer fighters as the compounds that they retain can curtail the powerful effects of aromatose significantly and thus stop breast cancer from growing and spreading. People all over the world can easily utilize these five superfoods to fight against cancer instead of spending money to get expensive treatments that have to date, failed to stop or cure the dreaded disease.
