11. Green Tea

Not just any green tea but matcha green tea. It is a unique variety that is powdered in a special way and used in traditional Japanese ceremonies.

The secret in matcha’s abilities can be found in the polyphenol compounds, called catechins. Research has shown that the catechins in matcha tea can not only protect you from the damage caused by the sun’s UV radiation, but they improve the functioning of your immune system.The National Cancer Institute says that they have been proven clinically to protect cells from DNA damage due to its substantial free radical killing abilities. Other compounds in matcha tea – polyphenols – have been found to inhibit tumor cell development. This is a whole lot of cancer protection from one little drink!

10. Berries

All berries, especially black raspberries, contain phytonutrients and ellagic acid, which stop tumors from growing. They do not only slow the growth of cancer cells, but have been shown in studies to ramp up enzymes in the body that destroy substances that cause cancer and prevent the growth of tumors. Eating berries vastly decreases the risk of developing lung, stomach, and mouth cancers. This is according to hundreds of clinical studies that have been conducted for both the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research.

Find ways to add organic berries to your meals daily and reap the wide range of anti-cancer benefits they have to offer. You can’t go wrong, no matter which berry you choose.

9. Omega-3 Fatty Acids

You knew there was a good reason to eat fish every week, right? Flaxseed oil and hemp oil, and eating all those delicious oily fish provide your body with omega-3 fatty acids which make your body inhospitable to cancer cells.

DHA (docosahexanoic acid), a type of omega-3 fatty acid, has been shown to reduce the size of tumors, as well as enhance the positive effects of chemotherapy drugs while limiting their side effects.  DHA is also a major component of our gray brain matter and our retina. It’s essential for normal neurological as well as cellular development. Research has found that DHA acts at a molecular level and reduces the accumulation of white blood cells, oxidative stress, as well as overall inflammation. All of these processes have been linked to the growth of cancerous tumors.
