Kill The Risk of Cancer With These Foods and Nutrients!

Vitamin D- Vitamin D has been shown to decrease the risk for having colon, breast, ovarian, renal, pancreatic, prostate, and other cancers. Supplementing with 2000IU of vitamin D3 per day will achieve the necessary levels of vitamin d necessary for decreased cancer risk.  Foods high in vitamin D include salmon, trout, tuna, halibut (and many other fish/seafood), fortified dairy products, and fortified cereals.

Calcium- Calcium supplementation and high diary intakes have been associated with decreased risk of colorectal cancer.  However it has also been shown to increase the risk for prostate cancer.

Coffee- Coffee contains many antioxidants which have anticancer properties.

Tea- Tea, like coffee, contains various antioxidants which have been show to prevent certain cancers.

Fruits and Vegetables- antioxidants in fruits and vegetables such as vitamin C, vitamin E, Selenium, and Phytochemicals (more on these later) have been shown to protect against mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophageal, cervical, lung, and stomach cancer.  Green and yellow vegetable re believed to play particular roles in protecting against stomach cancer.

Soy and Phytoestrogens- the isoflavones in Soy have been shown to protect against breast cancer especially when consumed before reaching adulthood.  Evidence is controversial however for soy’s’ benefits for adult women and woman during menopausal years.  Soy products should also be limited to 3 servings per day for woman who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.  Foods high in soy may be beneficial for men with Prostate cancer.  Foods high in soy include soy milk, edamame beans, and tofu.  Typically, foods high in soy are better than supplements derived from soy products due to a potential lack of isoflavones.
