The Anti-Cancer Diet

A lot of people is having a history of cancer in its family, one can say near everyone. It seems obvious for me that certain kind of food is actually increasing your risk of cancer. Today is a good time to start protecting your health. All the health problems are not avoidable, but it is a good decision to boost your ability to fight against cancer.

Diets based on vegetables and fruit appear to offer some protection against cancer and are strengthening the immune system. On the other hands, you have to avoid some foods who increase the risk of cancer. To prevent and fight cancer, you need to eat foods like vegetables, fruits, beans, seeds, nuts, whole grains. It will be your predominant diet.

It is important as well to eat a large variety of foods with fiber. When you eat vegetables and fruits, part of the food is not digest by your body, it is the fiber part. Your digestive system will appreciate a lot, the intake of fiber turns it more healthy and clean. The more you eat fiber, the better for your body which needs to be cleaned up.

Now a bad new, you need to cut down the meat. It is a fact that vegetarians are pretty much less to develop cancer than people who use to eat meat. Meat has no fiber, which has excellent cancer-protective properties. The problem of eating meat is the high quantity of saturated fat. Your body cannot afford such high levels for a long time. Meat in abundance is not good for you.

On the other hands, you cannot cut down totally the fat, because some kind of fat even can protect your body against cancer. You must cut down the satured fat which is in meat, but you must increase the fat coming from vegetables like olive oil which is a cholesterol free food and has 0g trans fat. Any oil that has a plant origin (like margarine) rather than an animal origin (like butter) is considered better.

Some fatty acids (Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids) are considered essential because our body can’t produce them. For that reason we must intake these fatty acids from the diet, but in a certain balance. Excessive consumption of vegetable oils can contribute to various serious diseases, even cancer. You probably know that trans fats are unsaturated fats that are modified to turn solid at room temperature. Do you know that vegetable oils soybean oil often contain massive amounts of trans fats?

This is the tip of the iceberg, in fact I am searching on the Internet a lot of informations about how food can increase the risk of cancer.
