Cancer Fighting Foods

Cancer is commonly defined as "a class of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth (division beyond the normal limits), invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood)." Cancer is something that know one would ever want to experience in their lifetime. Foods that we eat from day to day can fight off or reduce these cancer cells. Our bodies fight off damaging chemicals, that enter our body, every single day. But if our diet does not meet the demands of what it needs to fight off those free radicals, we tend to get sick or get controlled by some type of disease. We ask the very simple question, what can help? what can help protect us from cancer or the free radicals that cause it?

We are blessed with a variety of foods that can help boost our immunity and help fight of those damaging chemicals. If we did not have an immune system, human life would be nonexistent. Our immunity is something that should be greatly valued. It helps us stay healthy and helps us be vibrant people. As we start eating "cancer fighting foods" we can start protecting ourselves before it's too late. Cancer fighting foods have been around for generations and can have great affects on the body. The effects might not be seen now but as life moves forward we will see them in the future.

I really believe what we "eat" is "who" we are. Cancer fighting foods can not only help fight off free radicals but have a great impact on the body.
What are cancer fighting foods than and what effects does it have on the human body?

Here are a list of cancer fighting foods:

Carrots, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflowers, garlic, green tea, raspberries, tomatoes, avocados, nuts, flax, citrus fruits etc...

There are a variety of cancer fighting foods and the list can go on and on. What matters, in these cancer fighting foods, are the nutrients that come with them. In each food item are different properties that help fight off free radicals. Some inhibit cells, some protect, while others suppress and others build up the immunity. they each have different roles. That is why we eat not just one cancer fighting item but a variety.

These cancer fighting foods affect the body greatly through their antioxidant properties. Antioxidants protect the body from damaging chemicals, that we face throughout the day. These chemicals include: pollution, what we eat, sun rays, chemical sprays, paint, etc... All of these items can alter our normal cell growth and that in return causes cancer.

What our body does is fight off those free radicals and keep us from harms way. We have to boost our body and immunity up by eating healthy.
