Eat more anticancer foods
There are many carcinogens in food, as well as cancer-promoting ingredients, but there are also many anti-cancer substances, such as vitamins A, C, D, E and minerals like selenium, calcium, iron, iodine, zinc, molybdenum, and cellulose. They all play the role of anti-cancer or tumor suppressor.
The human body has 60 trillion cells, repeated split billions of times every day, error probability is very high, there will be cell anaplastic, developmental abnormalities and precancerous lesions such as tissue deformation, but in the early stages of cancer, if the body has sufficient anti-cancer nutrients, it can inhibit the tendecy of cells from being cancerous. Studies have shown that folate and vitamin B12 can reverse bronchial tissue deformation or cervical dysplasia; carotene and vitamin A, vitamin E and selenium can reverse oral precancerous lesions; vitamin C and calcium can reverse colon polyps; Vitamin E reversal of benign breast disease, such as fibrocystic breast disease.
The latest research found that selenium, iron, iodine, molybdenum, called the body’s anti-cancer “Four Diamond.” Inadequate intake of selenium can cause leukemia, colon cancer, breast cancer, skin cancer in men. Intake of 200mg selenium each day, can prevent the above cancers. Selenium-rich foods are animal kidney, liver, meat and beans.
Lack of iron has something to do with the occurrence of gastric and esophageal tumors, within four months, pernicious anemia patients can induce gastric cancer and liver cancer. Iron-rich foods contains animal liver and kidney. In addition, sesame, sunflower seeds, millet, celery, black fungus are also very rich in iron.
Iodine and thyroid cancer incidence and mortality are closely related to iodine deficiency. This can occur due to follicular thyroid cancer, breast cancer, endometrial cancer. Iodine-rich foods are kelp, seaweed and seafood. The incidence of esophageal cancer has something to do with the molybdenum content. There are not many molybdenum-containing foods, you should pay attention to food intake. Molybdenum-rich foods are mainly soybeans and soybean products.

Tomatoes contain lycopene which can reduce the risk of cancer resulting from, for gastric cancer, lung cancer and testicular cancer have antagonism. Eating apples can prevent colon cancer, because Apple contains pectin can stimulate gastrointestinal motility, and can be benign fibrous laxative, to prevent colorectal cancer. Anti-cancer bananas, because bananas contain large amounts of carbohydrates, crude fiber, carcinogenic substances in the body can rapidly excreted.

Colorful anti-cancer vegetables: beets, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, pumpkin, etc.; anti-cancer cruciferous vegetables: cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.; onions and garlic contain bioflavonoids, garlic, selenium, etc., can reversal of the cancer cells to normal cells. In addition, mushrooms, beans, whole grains such as oats, buckwheat, barley, corn all contain anti-cancer factor.
