I have made a master list of cancer fighting veggies from my favorite anticancer videos and cancer fighting recipes that I have found on other websites. I took the time to go through the videos and jot down all of the vegetables that were listed as cancer fighters.
Each of the veggies that were listed in the videos were different for each different type of cancer. So…breast cancer had a different list of veggies than prostate cancer and prostate cancer had a different list of veggies than brain cancer. In the video below it is pointed out that there are 2 families of vegetables that are most effective in fighting cancer and they are the allium family (onion, garlic, leek etc.) and the cruciferous family (broccoli, Brussels sprouts etc.) Here is the video if you missed it. He starts flipping through the list of veggies about 2/3rds of the way through.
Because my cancer is so rare and has not been studied in this aspect, I have jotted down the “overlaps” in the video and from a few other recipes. In other words, I noted each vegetable that was common for the various cancers listed and purchased those. So, if garlic was mentioned multiple times then I wrote it down. The result is a “master list” of veggies with the common trait of being a cancer fighter.
A Master List of Cancer Fighting Foods
Onion (sometimes green and sometimes yellow)
Broccoli & Broccoli Sprouts (hopefully eaten together)
There might be more and I will expand the list as I go but, this is a good start for a shopping list. Believe me, it’s hard to eat all of these veggies in a single week. Especially if you are just starting out like me. Don’t forget, you can juice these guys too. In fact, as I drink this I am sipping on a tall glass of Kaboom Cancer Fighting Juice Version 2. 🙂 If you need some ideas then just jump over to my Cancer Fighting Recipes Page for some ideas. This will get you going for now and I will try to keep expanding it.
As it stands now, I have radically reduced the amount of meat that I consume daily and I am taking in much more veggies with a combo of juices and vegetable dishes including salads and some of the hot dishes I am listing here as I go along. I usually mix it all up to keep from getting bored. You can only drink so much beet juice! 😛
Feel free to let me know if you find this useful and add your own veggies in the comments section.
Enjoy and keep fighting,
