  The original title: The American Cancer Institute recommends 13 kinds of anti-cancer food The first you eat every day

 

People expect a "universal" food that will fight all cancers, but the truth is: no! However, eating more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans and other foods can reduce a lot of cancer risk.

 

American Cancer Institute (AICR) recommended anti-cancer foods, may you eat every day, knowing that their anti-cancer effect, may wish to consciously eat more! Obesity increases the risk of developing 11 types of cancers. Whole-grain foods, beans, are rich in dietary fiber and have very low calories for vegetables and fruits, all of which can indirectly cause cancer through weight control.

The American Cancer Institute recommends 13 anti-cancer foods

Note:

 

Anti-cancer power means that there is strong evidence to support its anti-cancer effect.

 

Anti-cancer power two means: may have a preventive effect on these cancers.

 

1. apple:

 

Apple is rich in dietary fiber and vitamin C, an apple contains dietary fiber and vitamin C 10% daily recommended amount. Intestinal flora can also use dietary fiber pectin to produce compounds beneficial to cells.

 

Anti-inflammatory antioxidant quercetin, epicatechin, red apple contains anthocyanins, apple peel contains triterpenes have a very strong antioxidant capacity.

 

Anti-cancer power level: colorectal cancer

 

Anti-cancer power two: oropharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer , lung cancer

 

2. blueberry:

 

Blueberries are the most powerful antioxidants in all fruits. Blueberries are rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, and dietary fiber.

 

Anti-cancer power level: colorectal cancer

 

Anti-cancer power two: oropharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer, lung cancer

 

3. Broccoli and cruciferous vegetables:

 

Cruciferous vegetables are completely free of starch. Almost every cruciferous vegetable is rich in vitamin C, manganese, and some dark green vegetables also contain vitamin K.

 

Folic acid, vitamin B, magnesium, dietary fiber, carotenoids, anthocyanins, etc. can also be detected in some vegetables.

It has long been controversial that coffee can fight cancer, while others show that coffee increases the risk of cancer. Currently, coffee has been removed "2B carcinogen" list, there is growing evidence that coffee can reduce the risk of cancer.

 

The anti-cancer mechanism of coffee is still not particularly clear, the composition of coffee will change as the coffee beans change. In general, which contains vitamin B and phytochemicals, have antioxidant effects.

 

Has been proven to prevent: endometrial cancer , liver cancer

 

Possible prevention: pancreatic cancer , kidney cancer

Anti-cancer power two: oropharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer, lung cancer

 

8. Flaxseed

 

Flaxseed is a researcher's "darling" both in the field of nutrition and medicine. Flaxseed contains high-quality magnesium, manganese, vitamin B1, dietary fiber, mineral-rich selenium, and protein and trace copper. Flaxseed lipids also contain omega-3 fatty acids.

 

Flaxseed is rich in phytoestrogens such as lignans, so many studies have focused on its ability to prevent breast cancer. In recent years, flaxseed has also been shown to play a role in prostate and colon cancer.

9. grapefruit:

 

A grapefruit can increase the amount of vitamin C needed by adults one day. Low calorie and sweet and sour taste enough to make it popular around the world.

Anti-cancer power two: oropharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer, lung cancer

 

10. Soybean:

 

Tofu, soy milk, soy milk, legumes and other fermented goods is an important source of protein in our daily life. In addition, soy is rich in plant estrogen, dietary fiber, potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese, iron and so on.

 

Soy is also a good source of polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-6 and omega-3.

 

However, due to the rich and varied bean food practices, some of them may have different degrees of damage to nutrients during the production process and can not be generalized.

11. tea:

 

The recommended tea here is traditional white tea, green tea, black tea, oolong tea, which are derived from plant leaves, and not herbal tea originated from rhizomes, seed flowers and the like.

 

The nutrients in tea also depend on the type of tea. In general, the tea contains caffeine, catechins, thearubigins and theaflavins.

 

Research is more focused on green tea and cancer because green tea is rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

 

However, by reviewing the literature in the past, the AICR is not yet given the exact conclusion of its prevention of cancer.

 

12. walnut:

 

Among all nutty foods, the anti-cancer effects of omega-3-rich walnuts are the most studied.

 

Linoleic acid, ellagic acid and flavonoids in walnuts are all popular anti-cancer components in the laboratory. Animal experiments show that they can slow down the progress of breast and prostate cancer. There are also dozens of studies to explore the anti-cancer effect of walnuts.

 

However, evidence from AICR that the anti-cancer effect of nuts is proved to be limited does not give definitive conclusions.

 

13. whole wheat:

 

Including brown rice, oatmeal, corn, whole wheat bread, barley, buckwheat, dry wheat, millet, sorghum and so on. Whole-grain foods contain complete nutrients, including bran of dietary fiber, starch, endosperm and so on.

 

Excessive nutrients in whole-grain foods make it hard for researchers to show how anti-cancer and what components can fight cancer.
