Preventing and Reversing Cancer Naturally: The Anticancer Diet Shopping List | zestful living |




 This year alone, nearly 600,000 Americans will lose their lives to cancer. Could a primary reason be as simple as what people are not eating regularly? Here is an excellent anticancer shopping list to use as a guideline.


Sandi Cornez's insight:

It seem everyone except the old school  medical establishment knows that nutrition affects every aspect of our well-being – our moods, our behaviors, out thinking, and our wellness.


What we eat, absorb, and digest, our lifestyle choices are directly related to our sickness/disease or our wellness/great health.


The article states that there are volumes of scientific evidence proving that diet (live-it) and nutrition play a leading role in cancer development. See links and references.


It is also well known that cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment with research showing that tumor growth increases in an acid environment.  The majority of people in the U.S. .consume an excess of acid-forming foods,  Blood in the body is maintained at a slightly alkaline level between 7.2 and 7.4.


Eating alkaline foods keeps the blood pH in its ideal range, which is important for the prevention and treatment of cancer. The 80-20 rule applies here. Eat 80% of alkaline forming foods such as those available from many raw veggies and fruits, nuts, seeds, ancient grains and some whole grains and legumes. (Please read the article for all lists of foods).


Very important also are the cruciferous veggies – kale, broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, cauliflower, mustard greens, arugala, watercress, turnips, and Brussels Sprouts. These veggies contain detoxifying compounds which have been proven to help prevent and reverse cancer. See references.


Green foods are rich in blood purifying chlorophyll and other important phytonutrients for detoxifying the system and rejuvenating organs. Laboratory tests have established that chlorophyll inhibits the activity of carcinogens at a molecular level.


Red foods – research confirms that strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, tart cherries, cranberries, and goji berries are high in immunosupportive and cancer fighting nutrients. such as lycopene and carotene. And many are high antioxidant as well.


Fiber, not a food itself yet is an important component of veggies, fruits, ancient and whole grains. Research suggests that high fiber intake may lower incidence of certain cancers such as breast, uterine, colorectal, and prostate.


Olive oil – use in moderation, has been shown to have anti-cancer properties. Choose extra virgin cold-pressed.


Green Tea


Mushrooms – several varieties have powerful healing properties. Even white button mushrooms.


Seaweeds used in Chinese Medicine for treating cancers helps to soften hardened tumors.


Spices offer numerous health promoting benefits.


From this list, it's pretty evident that consuming a mostly or total plant based food regimen is the solution to our health care crisis in the U.S..

Sandi Cornez's insight:

Movement/exercise is critical for overall brain health and wellness. Recent research reveals that exercise promotes neurogenesis; your brain's ability to adapt and grow new brain cells.

During exercise nerve cells produce proteins that stimulate the production of another protein in the brain called Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor which stimulates the growth of new neurons and helps protect existing brain cells.

Physcial activity produces biochemical changes that strengthen your body and your brain – and in areas associated with memory and learning.
