Cut Your Cancer Risk

September 8, 2009

15 Years ago, 1 out of every 15 women developed cancer. Today, it’s 1 out of every 8!!! According to the National Institute of Cancer, there is strong evidence that is linked to a high fat diet. Colon cancer is one of the leading killers today. One third of American women die from colon cancer.

The average percentage of caloric fat is up to 40% in America. Compare this to Japanese women, whose diet is only 10% fat, and whose incidence of Breast Cancer is about one fifth that of American women.

Dr. Leon Bradlow, Ph.D. of the Strang Cancer Research Laboratory in New York is focusing his research on the things you find in the produce aisle at your local grocers. His emphasis is on Phytochemicals which help the body undergo hormonal changes that can protect against Breast Cancer.

1. Cut the Fat
Reduce Fatty foods

Sauces, mayonnaise, butter, shortening, fried foods, fatty pastries, cheeses, whole milk, regular hamburger

2. Change Your Cooking Habits to the S & B Styles

Stir fry w/ water, cooking spray, light olive oil

Sauté / same as stir fry rules



3. Increase your fiber intake to 20-30 grams ( prevents all cancers, especially colon cancer)
High Fiber Foods – Use herbs and spices to taste, reduce salt

Beans , legumes, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, whole grain breads, brown rice, old fashioned oats ( no instant)

4. Vegetable & Fruit Pharmacy
Tomatoes – Rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that gives tomatoes their red color. Also found in strawberries, pink grapefruit and guava.

Onions and garlic – Several studies in Japan and China suggest that consuming garlic may lower risk of stomach cancer. Garlic and Onions contain allylic sulfides, which are believed to protect the body against dangerous cancer causing carcinogens.

Strawberries- Significant source of the antioxidant glutathione, which boost the immune system. Right now they are ripe and juicy, be sure to wash them thoroughly before eating.

Broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts -Contains the phytochemical indole carbinol, which creates the production of protective enzymes against cancer.

Oranges- Contains vitamin C which blocks cancer causing chemicals called nitrosamines. They are also high in fiber and can help lower cholesterol.

They are finally in great supply and the prices are coming down.

Apples – Contain a chlorogenic acid that has shown to inhibit cancer growth in numerous studies. It is high in fiber and contains pectin, which can decrease your appetite. Apples are also good for reducing cholesterol in your body. I guess what that old saying is somewhat true. An apple a day Could keep the doctor away.

*** Note- make sure you always thoroughly wash your fruits and vegetables. Also buy organically grown whenever you can.

An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure!
