Updated on June 21, 2012

Antioxidants are actually our sentinel in fighting cancer. Below are sources of antioxidants:

The Avocado or Guacamole

Perhaps one of the best tasting fruits when added with milk and sugar, or just made into a shake, the nutritious avocado is heavily loaded with nutrients and vitamins vital to your body like lutein (protect the eyes and good eyesight), betalsitosterol (helps lower cholesterol), gluthathione (may reduce the risk of throat and mouth cancers) vitamin E (good for your heart). Avocados are also packed with potassium which is monounsaturated (good kind hehehe)

 

Mexicans call this fruit guacamole...

The Wonders of Wheat Grass

The versatile fruit - tomatoes.

Packed with lots of vitamins A and C, tomatoes are indeed a powerhouse in the realms of all produce. It is also one of the best source of lycopene this high-octane antioxidant may lower the risk of prostate cancer and heart disease.

If fresh-tomatoes are not available in the market, you may have canned tomatoes as a better alternative. Tomato-based products such as catsup, spaghetti sauce and tomato paste have 10 times more lycopene than the tomatoes that are not canned. The canning process make it easier for your body to absorb lycopene.

Definitely not a vegetable.
