Superfood! A healthy diet for cancer patients

By Charles Hopkins Published 10/14/2006 | Food & Drink

Still cancer is deadly, fearsome and without an answer. If detected at an initial stage something can really be done to cure the patient, but at an advanced stage you can do nothing but wait for death.

Yet no true way has been found to prevent cancer or any type of vaccination has been researched so that cancer can be completely wiped out. What remains as the only solution is chemotherapy and medicinal assistance till you take your last breath.

To call it a solution would be wrong but to name it as a means to support your healthy being would be better. This is exactly how the superfood has a close relation with the cancer patients. You eat superfood and get cured of cancer. Nobody would dare to make such a tall claim, but you can really stay fit and fine with that severe ailment if you feed on superfood. Here are a few ways to implement superfoods into your diet beneficially.

Broccoli: A super preventive 

Superfood has primarily given stress on green vegetables because they are rich in essential nutrients for healthy being. Green salads are rich in minerals and most of the important vitamins, like A, C, D, E. Similarly, you can add broccoli into your regular diet.

Grow super edible broccoli in your kitchen garden and prevent cancer. How? Medical Science has researched and found out that the broccoli has anti-cancer causing agents. Actually there is a chemical component in the broccoli known as sulphoraphane which acts as a preventive agent to colon cancer. So as a green superfood you can depend on broccoli to combat cancer.

The herbal prevention

Fruits and vegetables have already found the lead in the superfood category and also as preventive agents for cancer, they are being accounted the most. But you can also think in a deeper herbal way.

You must know that herbal tea is a very good medicine but recent times have shown it also protects you from cancer. Similarly, as superfoods like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage they can help you to reduce the threat of cancer that can attack your body; herbal tea also helps to minimize your chances of getting it. Oregano, mangosteen and different types of berries like the blueberry and the acai berry that fall under superfoods are remedial fruits to fight back the deadly disease, cancer, especially Mesothalmic cancer.

Add garlic to your recipes

To be more specific, if you keep eating superfoods like berries, broccoli, sprout, soybeans, etc., the threat to cancer is definitely minimized. All these superfoods also have proven capability of providing inner strength to the core of your body. But those little buds of garlic which can never become a core food in your diet and often used for garnishing has been treated as a superfood and a preventive agent of cancer. Garlic prohibits the growth of cancer cells by supplementing with an organic component called allyl sulfur and thus this tiny-mini vegetable has gained a superb position in the sphere of superfood.

Across the globe many brains are working together to find a cure for cancer. But cant we help ourselves a bit on our own? How much does it take to include these superfoods in our diet? Even if you are not a cancer patient, keep this chart by your side and feed accordingly. You can relish your life and stay away from such deadly diseases.
