Best Superfoods For Cancer Prevention - 3 That Most Appreciate

A universal opinion is something that you would assume would exist in regard to the research that has been done with superfoods in the last few years. In reality, you will find that there is very little empirical data that can show the tie between cancer and superfoods. The medical community, despite this lack of specific data, will not actually denounce superfoods and the role in the fight against cancer. Really, what needs to be done is to compare chosen lifestyle habits, and other factors that put people at risk for developing cancer.

When thinking of foods that prevent cancer, watermelon may not be the first thing that comes into your mind. Watermelons have many beneficial qualities, and some of these have only been discovered recently. Many superfoods contain similar nutrients, but it's actually good to get them from different sources. If you want to be sure you're getting enough Vitamin C, a serving of watermelon by itself will supply you with this. Watermelons, along with tomatoes, contain large amounts of lycopene, which help protect the body against cancer. Watermelons also have a large amount of beta carotene (Vitamin A), which is an antioxidant that helps prevent cancer.

Have you ever heard of a kumquat before? It is not the most publicized fruit on the market today. Just like a kiwifruit, the kumquat can be ingested, along with the rind, with no problems at all. When you eat a fruit with a peel or rind, it should usually never be consumed. There are actually liminoids in the kumquat rind which can help you in many ways. Cancer that is spreading can actually be prevented by liminoids according to in vitro research today. But remember this is under lab conditions which is what in vitro tests mean. Of course, even I would concur with the positive results of this data. You'll also get other good nutrients from kumquats so the liminoids are not the only benefit.

Raspberries are very delicious and contain powerful superfoods with the primary ingredient being ellagic acid. Some of the most powerful superfoods of all that fight cancer contain this nutrient. What ellagic acid does is target cancerous cells and accelerate cell death. And unlike many drugs, ellagic acid is harmless to cells that are healthy. What's also so good about raspberries is that you can store them in your freezer and this will not damage the ellagic acid component. In fact, any form of raspberries, such as jellies and jams, will still have ellagic acid present and you can reap the benefits.

As you can see, superfoods are essential for your health. You should have a list of them, and their benefits, with you at all times. That's actually a smart approach to your diet and maintaining good health. Although some people equate these foods too bad medicine they remember as a child, they are not that bad, and you should get into the habit of eating them. Doing this is all about keeping you alive for as long as possible, and being healthy while living.
