The World's Best Anti Cancer Diet

In you quest to reduce your cancer rish,don’t overlook the obvious:Improving you diet can play a substantial role in preventing the disease.
Food offers a formidable team of antioxidants and phytochemicals (plant chemicals) that help counteract the cellular processes in the body that can lead to cancer .But the typical American diet is meat –centered and focused on fast food .aprofile that doesn’t offer much cancer pritetion.
To cancer-proof your diet ,take note from other countries. Steven Jonas, MDprofessor of preventive medicine and coauthor of The 30 Secrets of the World’s Healthiest Cuisines, Offers the following suggestions.
Choose plant power.
Eating a variety of plant-based foods –fruits and vegetables—is the number one rule for cancer prevention,because such foods offer a cornucopia of antioxidants and phytochemicals that help make your cells less susceptible to cancer.
Need proof? In rural China, the incidrnces of breast, colon and rectal cancers are fractions of the rates reported in the U.S There,vegetables are revered and eaten in much greater quantities than meat.
The American Cancer Society recommends five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables per day,but the average American falls far short of that. To add more fruits and vegetables to your diet, you don’t have to eat Chinese stir-fries event night. Instead, just import the Chinese way, sneak fruit and vegetables into foods you already eat.
Add mushrooms, peppers, zucchini, onions and carrots to pasta sauce, meatloaf, soup, stew and chili. Meanwhile, use meat in smaller, condiment-size quantities. Consider meat a flavoring agent.
Add Mediterranean flavors.
Studies show that aromatics, such as rosemary, garlic and parsley, do more than add zest to foods. They contain antioxidants that have potent cancer-fighting properties. In Mediterranean countries, the incidence rates for all forms of cancer are nearly 50 percent less than in the United States.
Parsley, in particular, is used in large quantity in Mediterranean salads and sauces. It’s packed with vitamin C and beta carotene, which have been linked to a reduced risk of breast cancer.
Rosemary and garlic are believed to boost your body’s arsenal of detoxifying enzymes that help break down the cancer-causing chemicals you’re exposed to,such as secondhand smoke.
The Mediterranean people’s generous use olive oil also contributes to their healthfulness.
Select grains.
Robust tye and barley bread is to Scandinavians what baguettes are to the French and white rice to Asians.
It’s a tradition worth importing.There has been abundant scientific evidence in recent years showing people who consume there or more servings of whole grains per day have a lower risk for heart disease,diabetes, digestive, disorders and possibly some forms cancer.
