Did You know?
Every person has cancer cells in the body.
When the person's immune system is strong, the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.
An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
Sugar is a cancer feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells.
Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame and it is harmful.
A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts.
Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.
Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties.
It is best to drink purified or filtered water to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water.
Avocados are rich in glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that attacks free radicals in the body by blocking intestinal absorption of certain fats.
Broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower have a chemical component called indole-3-carbinol that can combat breast cancer.
Carrots contain a lot of beta-carotene, which may help reduce a wide range of cancers.
