cancer diet, cancerCancer is one of the most dangerous diseases in the world. If cancer is not detected and taken care of in its earliest stages it can be fatal where even surgery doesn’t help. As the saying goes-“prevention is better than cure”- we should follow this saying seriously and try to keep cancer at bay by opting for foods which help the body stay cancer free to a certain extent.

What’s included in anti-cancer diets?

 Plant based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables
 Anti-oxidants like green tea
 Omega 3 fatty acids
 Fiber rich foods
 Lower the amount of red meats in your diet
 Plenty of liquids and 10 to 12 glasses of water daily

When should you opt for a cancer prevention diet?

When you have a history of cancer in your family you should start thinking about taking anti cancer diets. Also if your immunity has always been on the weak side and if you stay in an environment where you may develop cancer-for example if you smoke a lot or if you live with smokers or work in such an environment then you might be prone to cancer. It’s a good idea to turn to anti cancer diets in such cases.
Whatever foods are given in a cancer prevention diet is advised to be stored in cool and dark places. You could also talk to a nutritionist to get a personalized diet chart. Cancer is a very deadly disease and people must try everything that’s in their hands to try and prevent it.
