5 superalimente care previn cancerul

Inca un doctor confirma faptul ca lupta cu cancerul incepe din farfurie. Dupa ce neurologul american David Servan-Schreiber a publicat o carte in care a descris modul in care s-a vindecat de cancer band ceai verde si mancand peste gras, usturoi si rosii, doctorul canadian Richard Beliveau, de la Universitatea din Quebec, seful catedrei de prevenire si tratament al acestei boli si autorul lucrarii “Foods to Fight Cancer”, vorbeste despre existenta unor superalimente care pot preveni teribila maladie.
1. Brocolli
Toate legumele crucifere (conopida, varza) au proprietati anticancerigene, insa broccoli e cel mai eficent, deoarece contine o cantitate mare de sulforafan. Aceasta e o substanta care activeaza enzimele din sistemul imunitar, ataca celulele canceroase si, totodata, ajuta organismul sa elimine compusii chimici cu potential cancerigen.
Previne cancerul: de san, de ficat, de plamani, de prostata, de piele, de stomac, de vezica urinara.
Sfatul medicului: adauga broccoli in salate, in omleta de la micul dejun si chiar in toppingul de pizza, numai consuma-l cat mai des!
2. Mure
Toate fructele de padure contin fitonutrienti care combat cancerul, insa murele au cea mai mare concentratie de antocianine, deci sunt cele mai indicate pentru prevenirea si tratamentul acestei maladii. Antocianinele incetinesc dezvoltarea celulelor canceroase si aparitia unor noi vase de sange, cu ajutorul carora aceste celule s-ar putea hrani.
Previn cancerul: bucal, de colon, de esofag, de piele.
Sfatul medicului: consuma zilnic o jumatate de cana de fructe de padure. Ideal ar fi sa mananci mure, dar si celelalte – zmeura, fragi, afine – sunt eficiente.
3. Nuci
Nucile sunt benefice in lupta cu cancerul, deoarece contin fitosteroli. S-a demonstrat ca acesti compusi vegetali (similari cu colesterolul din produsele animale) blocheaza receptorii de estrogen din celulele canceroase localizate la nivelul sanului, incetinind inmultirea lor.
Previn cancerul: de san, de prostata.
Sfatul medicului: mananca zilnic 30 de grame de nuci.
4. Usturoi
Fitochimicalele din usturoi impiedica aparitia nitrozaminelor, agenti cancerigeni puternici, care se formeaza in stomac sau in tubul digestiv cand mancam alimente ce contin nitrati (aditivi alimentari folositi la conservarea mezelurilor si branzeturilor).
Previn cancerul: de san, de colon, de esofag, de stomac.
Sfatul medicului: pune usturoi zdrobit (prin zdrobire se elibereaza enzime benefice) in salate sau in sosuri, cand gatesti.
5. Rosii
Tomatele sunt cea mai buna sursa de licopen, un fitonutrient din familia carotenoidelor, care are rol antioxidant. Mai multe studii efectuate de cercetatori din intreaga lume au aratat ca licopenul reduce riscul de cancer, iar odata instalata aceasta afectiune, ajuta la stoparea inmultirii celulelor cancerigene.
Previn cancerul: de endometru (tesutul care captuseste uterul), de plamani, de prostata, de stomac.
Sfatul medicului: consuma rosiile gatite, nu proaspete, pentru ca prin incalzire creste cantitatea de licopen pe care organismul o poate absorbi.

5 super alimente care vindeca

Alimentele pe care le consumam fie ne ajuta sa ramanem in forma, fie ne fac rau. Exista o varietate de alimente bogate in substante nutritive care ne ajuta sa ne vindecam de diverse boli si sa prevenim aparitia altora. Fiecare aliment din lista de mai jos are multiple efecte de vindecare, ajutand fie prevenirea cancerului, reducerea colesterolului, prevenirea bolilor de inima sau a diabetelui. Alege urmatoarele alimente pentru a va simti mai bine in propria piele.

KIWI

Acest fruct este extrem de bogat in elemente nutritive si contine o cantitate substantiala de vitamina C (de doua ori mai mult decat portocalele), are mai multe fibre decat merele si mai multe proteine decat bananele.

Combinatia de vitamine, minerale si fitonutrienti din acest fruct protejeaza impotriva bolilor cardiovasculare, cancer, boli respiratorii si atac de cord. Kiwi are de asemenea proprietati naturale de subtiere a sangelui si reduce nivelul de colesterol din sange, reducand de asemenea tensiunea arteriala. Studiile indica faptul ca acest fruct reduce stresul oxidativ si daunele aduse ADN-ului si repara celulele.

Fructul de kiwi este recomandat persoanelor care lupta cu cancerul sau bolile cardiovasculare si ajuta de asemenea la vindecarea ranilor. Se recomanda a se consuma cate 1-2 kiwi pe zi.

CIRESELE

Ciresele au multe proprietati de vindecare. Pe langa faptul ca sunt sarace in calorii, acestea sunt de asemenea pline de substante nutritive, care lupta impotriva inflamatiilor si previn cancerul. Ciresele au de asemenea proprietati antivirale si antibacteriene.

Antocianina, un compus regasit in cirese, are rolul de a reduce nivelul de acid uric din sange si previne astfel aparitia gutei. Cercetatorii sunt de parere ca antocianina poate reduce de asemenea riscul dezvoltarii cancerului de colon.

Ciresele ajuta la calmarea durerilor si reducerea inflamatiilor. Consumul regulat de cirese poate reduce riscul de atac de cord si de atac cerebral. In medicina chineza, cieresele sunt folosite pentru tratarea gutei, a artritei si a reumatismului, precum si a anemiei (deoarece ciresele sunt bogate in fier). Incercati sa consumati cirese zilnic, insa alegeti-le pe cele organice, deoarece cele obisnuite gasite in supermarketuri contin pesticide. Ciresele congelate sunt la fel de bune deoarece elementele nutritive se pastreaza.

FASOLEA

Fasolea este un aliment minune. Aceasta reduce colesterolul, regleaza nivelul zaharului din sange, ajuta digestia si protejeaza impotriva cancerului. Acest aliment este bogat in fibre, proteine si antioxidanti.

Fitochimicalele din fasole previn aparitia cancerului si impiedica inmultirea celulelor canceroase, incetinind dezvoltarea tumorilor. S-a demonstrat faptul ca femeile care consuma fasole de cel putin 3 ori pe saptamana sunt cu 24% mai putin predispuse sa dezvolte cancer de san, iar alte studii au demonstrat ca fasolea reduce riscul dezvoltarii de boli cardiovasculare, a diabetului zaharat de tip 2, a hipertensiunii si a cancerului de colon.

Fasolea contine foarte multi antioxidanti, care previn daunele oxidative. Acestea sunt o sursa excelenta de proteine, fibre si fier. Contin de asemenea acid triptofan care regleaza pofta de mancare, previne insomniile si imbunateste starea de spirit.

In medicina chineza, fasolea este folosita pentru tratarea urmatoarelor afectiuni: alcoolism, toxiinfectie alimentara, hipertensiune, diaree, laringita, pietre la rinichi, reumatism.

Incercati sa consumati fasole de cel putin doua ori pe saptamana.

MACRISUL

Acest aliment este extrem de nutritiv, fiind totodata extrem de sarac in calorii. Este o sursa perfecta de calciu, vitamina C si fier. Contine de asemenea vitamina A si multa vitamina K, precum si fitochimicale si antioxidanti carotenoizi.

Macrisul ajuta la prevenirea cancerului, intareste sistemul imunitar si intareste oasele.

In medicina chineza, macrisul este folosit pentru reducerea tumorilor, imbunatatirea vederii pe timp de noapte si stimularea productiei de bila.

Se recomanda a fi consumat zilnic, preferabil in stare naturala. Poate inlocui salata sau poate fi introdus in supe, sucuri, smoothie-uri, sandwich-uri.

SPANACUL

Spanacul imbunatateste vederea, functiile creierului si previne cancerul de colon, de prostata si de san. Lupta de asemenea impotriva bolilor cardiovasculare, a atacurilor cerebrale si a dementei, scade tensiunea arteriala, are proprietati antiinflamatorii si intareste oasele. Spanacul contine o cantitate semnificativa de vitamina K, calciu, vitamina A, vitamina C, folati, magneziu si fier.

Carotenoidele din spanac omoara celulele canceroase si previn multiplicarea acestora. Fiind bogat in vitamina K, spanacul intareste oasele si ajuta la fixarea calciului in oase. Este de asemenea bogat in luteina, care previne degenerarea maculara, atacurile de cord si reduce nivelul colesterolului.

Spanacul ar trebui sa se consume zilnic. Este usor de gasit si atat de benefic pentru organism, incat nu ar trebui sa lipseasca din dieta ta.

Antioxidants in Vegetables

http://www.traditional-foods.com/antioxidants/vegetables/

The age-old advice of “eat your vegetables” certainly applies in this case. A diet rich in vegetables is an antioxidant-rich diet. Salads filled with greens are one of the most effective and easiest strategies in making over a diet. The resources here on vegetable antioxidants may serve as a guide to you as well.

Ginger and garlic top the list, crossing over the two categories of vegetable and spice. Each of these foods as benefits far beyond the ORAC value presented here and can be incorporated liberally and inexpensively into the diet. Lemon balm and cilantro cross into the “herb” category as well and are used primarily as seasonings, though clever cooks will use them as a core part of their recipes at times.

Graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo


This tree is low and is called graviola ! in Brazi l, guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name “soursop” in English. The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or, more commonly, used to make fruit drinks, sherbets and such.

The principal interest in this plant is because of its strong anti-cancer effects. Although it is effective for a number of medical conditions, it is its anti tumor effect that is of most interest. This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types.

Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections, is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders.

If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it’s the incredible story behind the Graviola tree..

The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to:
* Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss
* Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
* Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
* Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life

The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America ‘s largest drug manufacturers, th! e fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970′s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing… Extracts from the tree were shown to:

* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer..
* The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
* What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectivelyhunts
down and kills only cancer cells.. It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched–so why haven’t you heard anything about it? If Graviola extract is

One of America ‘s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indi! ans in S outh America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties–and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.
But that’s where the Graviola story nearly ended.

The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree–it’s completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it.

It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits–or even make back the millions it poured into research.

As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!

Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed
When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola,! they be gan tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola–and its shocking cover-up–came in fast and furious….

….The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public…

….Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value–were ever initiated….

….A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…”

….The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.

…A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers

TOP 14 ANTI-CANCER SUPER FRUITS

Many types of cancer are induced by the food we eat. Cancer can also be prevented or helped by adding super fruits to our diet. Here are the Top 14 best anti-cancer super fruits and why they are so good for you: >BLUEBERRIES Researchers have shown blueberries contain pterostilbene, anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, resveratrol, flavonols, and tannins, which inhibit mechanisms of cancer cell development. Besides this, blueberry can also alleviate the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, prevent urinary tract infections, and reduce blood sugar.

GRAPES
A grape is a perennial and deciduous woody vine. Its berries can be eaten raw or be made into juice, jam, jelly, wine, raisins, and others. Grapes are found in almost all parts of the world. Grapes contain phytochemicals such as resveratrol which has been positively implicated to inhibit any type of cancer.

DRAGON FRUIT
Dragonfruit is rich in phytoalbumin antioxidants which help carcinogenic free-radical formation in the body. It is also rich in fiber, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamins C and B2, as well as its helps excrete metal toxins from the body.

CITRUS FRUITS
Citrus fruits include orange, lemon, grapefruit, etc. This kind of fruits contains a large number of bioflavonoids, which can enhance the activity of certain enzymes in human skin, lung, stomach and liver, and change the fat-soluble carcinogenic substance into water-soluble, so as to make them not easy to be absorbed and can be expelled out of the body. At the same time, they can enhance the absorptive capacity of vitamin C by the human body. Vitamin C is an important cancer substance, which can enhance human immunity, prevent the formation of nitrosamines–a strong carcinogen. What’s more, it also has certain effect in the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal cancer.

A study published a few years ago in the journal Nutrition and Cancer, for instance, found that people who consume the highest amounts of flavonoids and proanthocyanidins, a subgroup of flavonoids, were 44 percent less likely to develop oral cancer, 40 percent less likely to develop laryngeal cancer, and 30 percent less likely to develop colon cancer compared to others.

AVOCADO
Avocados contain lutein, an anti-cancer carotenoid. Lutein lowers the risk of prostate cancer in men and protects eyes against fatal diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts. Another cancer-fighting component of avocado is glutathione that can significantly cuts the incidence of oral and pharyngeal cancer. Avocados are also rich in potassium, vitamins, and heart-healthy fats.

STRAWBERRIES
Anti cancer action is actually related to the polyphenols contained in the berries, rather than in their antioxidant potential, as is commonly assumed. A diet containing a high proportion of strawberries or raspberries (5% or more of total diet) in animals, has been found to significantly decrease the number of esophageal tumors triggered by NMBA, a known powerful carcinogen. Ellagic acid appears to prevent the activation of carcinogenic substances into cellular toxins, causing them to lose their ability to react with DNA and induce mutations capable of triggering the onset of cancer. In addition, strawberry also contains a kind of amine substance, which has good effect in the prevention of leukemia and other diseases related with blood.

ACAI BERRIES
Laboratory studies have shown that acai berries can kill off cancer cells. Extracts from the berries can induced the death of leukemia cells. Other beneficial contents of acai are its antioxidants (found to be twice than in blueberries), omega fatty acids, protein, vitamins A and C, iron, and fiber.

NONI
According to recent studies, noni has properties that may be beneficial in preventing cancer. The extract from the tropical plant indicates some anti-cancer properties useful for the immune system. Moreover, noni contains carbohydrates, dietary fibers, niacin, calcium, iron and potassium.

GOJI BERRIES
It has been found out that goji berries contain selenium, a trace mineral that acts an antioxidant which can neutralize free radicals that damage cells and cause cancer. Goji berries are also rich in other nutrients and phytochemicals like amino acids, carotenoids like beta-carotene and zeaxanthin, polysaccharides, antioxidants, calcium, potassium, iron, zinx, and riboflavin.

MANGOSTEEN
Mangosteen is anti-cancer and helps cancer prevention.
Various studies have shown that phytoceuticals in Mangosteen (in some cases known to be its xanthones) have properties such as: anti-tumor (shrinks tumors), anti-leukemia, antifungal (critical for all cancer patients), antibacterial (to protect DNA), antioxidants (at least two dozen different kinds of xanthones are in the mangosteen fruit), antiproliferation, kills cancer cells and causes apoptosis (programmed cell death) for some types of cancer. This is a pretty impressive list of cancer credentials!

This fruit has countless health benefits like ant-ulcer, anti-aging, antiviral, antibiotic, antifungal, anti-depressant, anti-obesity, anti-allergenic, anti-cataract, and many more.

Mangosteen also contains: catechins, polyphenols, minerals and vitamins.

SOURSOP
Soursop has anti-cancer characteristics and is best for all types of cancer. The fruit is also anti-stress, anti-bacterial, antifungal, anti-depressant, and anti-worms.

POMEGRANATE
Studies have reported that the fruits contain phytochemicals that can suppress aromatase, an enzyme which converts androgen into estrogen and which is associated with breast cancer. Furthermore, clinical trials have shown the pomegranate extracts can prevent prostate cancer in men.

KIWI
Kiwi contains plenty of vitamins, especially vitamin C, the content of which is 4 to 12 times as that of orange. Through the researches in recent years, it is confirmed that kiwi contains a kind of active ingredient, which can block the formation of carcinogenic “nitrosamines” in the human body. As a result, it has a good effect in preventing cancer.

APPLE
Apple peels contain as many as a dozen cancer-fighting chemical compounds, according to a study conducted by researchers at Cornell University and published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

“We found that several compounds have potent anti-proliferative activities against human liver, colon and breast cancer cells, and may be partially responsible for the anti-cancer activities of whole apples,” said Rui Hai Liu, an associate professor of food science.

The researchers extracted each individual chemical compound found in the peels of 230 pounds of Red Delicious apples. They then tested these compounds individually against cultures of cancer cells in the laboratory. They identified 12 compounds, called triterpenoids, which inhibited the growth of cancer cells or even killed them.
