  2. 2. I am sure you have heard the phrase " You are What You Eat."Well the question of this article is can your diet influence yourrisk of cancer. For example can an unhealthy diet increase yourrisk of cancer and can a healthy diet reduce your risk of cancer.Since diet is one of the things that we can control in potentiallyreducing our risk of cancer, it is important to understand ifresearch shows that it does indeed show some promise ofreducing your cancer risk.Research has shown that a diet that is based on animal fats canincrease the risk of cancer and cause other harmful effects onthe body. Other research has shown that eating a diet based onanimal fat can increase a mans risk of prostate cancersignificantly. Other research indicates that being overweightcan increase the risk of uterus cancer in women duringmenopause. There is also strong support that a diet high in fatand low in fiber can increase the risk of colorectal cancer andother related types of cancers.So based on the research presented so far it can be safelyassumed that an unhealthy diet does have some affect on yourrisk levels for some types of cancers. Now the next question iscan eating a healthy diet reduce your risk of cancer and helpyou potentially prevent it. First you have to understand thatthere is no direct link between food and cancer. Take the aboveexample for eating high fat diet and prostate cancer. Just
  3. 3. because you eat a diet high in animal fat does not mean youwill get prostate cancer and vice versa. Just because you eat adiet low in animal fat does not guarantee that you will not getprostate cancer. What you do however is reduce your risk ofgetting cancer by eating healthier foods or even foods thathave compounds in them than are claimed to prevent cancer.However, there is usually no full proof evidence that this ispossible. For instance, there is no evidence that resveratrol,contained in grapes, can slow the tumor growth in humans likeit slows the tumor growth in mice. In addition, the consumptionof some fiber-rich foods, for instance, does not guarantee thatyou will never get cancer.Something else you might want to note is that some foodsseem to have anti-cancer properties because some studiesindicate that by eating them your risk is reduced. However theresearch does not really indicate why so the reason is notknown.
  4. 4. So what is the verdict? Probably the best answer is that ahealthy diet can reduce your risk of cancer. Even if it does not,it will have other benefits on your life and health as well. Forexample a healthy diet will also help to keep your heartstronger, your blood pressure lower and so on and so on. Youmay want to discuss with your doctor switching your diet overto one that is primarily plant based. Just remember that bestway to prevent cancer is by catching it in its early stages so youshould follow all of your doctors recommended cancerscreening advice. Most importantly make sure that you areregularly checked for cancer. Get a Free Spiritual Healing For Cancer E-Course and healthy subliminal download at www.custom-hypnosis.com/cancer
