Cancer is a word no one ever wants to hear, and is second only to heart disease as a life-threatening illness. As more than one million people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the US, there are many questions that arise regarding cancer.
• What is cancer, and what are the different types of cancers?
• Who normally gets it?
• How do we prevent cancer?
• What food habits and lifestyle will reduce the risk of cancer?

Transcript of "Cancer foods that fight cell mutation"

  1. 1. Cancer: Foods that Fight Cell Mutation and Fend off Cancer Cancer is a word no one ever wants to hear, and is second only to heart disease as a life-threatening illness. As more than one million people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the US, there are many questions that arise regarding cancer.  What is cancer, and what are the different types of cancers?  Who normally gets it?  How do we prevent cancer?  What food habits and lifestyle will reduce the risk of cancer? In the human body, cancer cells rapidly multiply and eventually form tumors that interrupt the normal function of the body. When cells grow uncontrollably, the tumor spreads to other organs. This process is called metastasis, and can spread to multiple organs in the body and cause them to malfunction. Breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancers are the most common kinds of cancer diagnosed. Other cancer types include skin cancers, digestive system cancers, and urinary tract cancers as well as numerous others. A common belief is that susceptibility for cancer cells to mutate may be genetic (inherited from direct family members or close relatives). Environmental problems and exposure to radiation also add to the risk of cancer. Are there ways to prevent this dreadful disease? Living a healthy lifestyle has been shown to positively impact the risk of cancer, and could possibly be the biggest factor.
  2. 2. As tobacco dramatically increases the risk of lung cancer and many other cancers, avoid the use of tobacco. Second-hand smoke has many carcinogens as well. Alcohol usage is discouraged as it is actually toxic to the body, and increases the risk of lung cancer in men and breast cancer in women. Eliminate alcohol consumption to avoid these cancers and many other problems. Limit exposure to radiation and chemicals like gasoline, arsenic, beryllium, nickel chromates, coal products, mustard gas, and diesel exhaust as they have been directly related to cancer. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables reduces the risk of cancer development. Fruits like figs, blueberries, and grapes have anti-cancer properties. Cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower are a few vegetables that could prevent cancer. Green, orange, and yellow fruits and vegetables have been found to fight cancer. A healthy diet is an easy way to prevent cancer. Organic foods are healthier because they are produced differently than conventional foods. They are grown without pesticides, and they are full of natural nutrients. Many vegetables and fruits such as avocados, carrots, mushrooms, papayas, and raspberries are great cancer-fighters. When vegetables are cooked, 30-85% of the nutrients are lost and not available to kill the bad cells. Consuming raw fruits and vegetables or steamed vegetables reduce the risk of cancer. Diets that include animal fats and an over consumption of red meat are not ideal and can increase the risk of cancer. Consuming small amounts of clean poultry and fish is healthier.
  3. 3. Exercise regularly to keep fit. Walking, jogging, dancing, and practicing yoga are examples of exercising. Thirty minutes of exercise daily will reduce the risk of cancer. Dr. Fred Bisci, a nutritionist and food scientist, believes that the risk of life- threatening diseases can be reduced by the intake of healthy foods and organic eating. He also believes that supplemental enzymes will decrease the risk of cancer. ____________________________________________________________ ___________ Dr. Fred Bisci is an organic and raw food nutritionist with over 40 years of experience helping people improve longevity and reduce the risk of diet related illnesses. He has assisted over 35,000 people to improve health by focusing not only on what goes into the body, but what is left out.
