The Top 25 Anti-Cancer Foods To Eat Every Day


Published on

Here's 25 anti-cancer foods to eat every day to boost your body's ability to prevent and heal cancer, and they're (mostly) things you're already eating.

These everyday foods can help your body deal more effectively with cancer, and can also help reduce the side effects of conventional cancer treatments.

So what you put in your mouth three times a day can make a big difference to your health.

A study done in 2010 showed that eating foods with the highest levels of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, fibre and phytochemicals (plant chemicals), significantly reduced the risk of many different types of cancers.

So if you're wondering what you should eat, this list of the top anti-cancer foods is a great place to start.

Try to eat at least one of the foods on this list every day, and every single one of these foods every week or two.
