Your First Step to Preventing Cancer

To prevent cancer a person must prevent the absorption of mutangenic substances into their bodies. That is a chemical agent that can change DNA of a any organism and increases mutations above certain levels. They are also said to be carcinogens because so many cause cancer.

All prepared foods contain mutagenic substances and that includes vegetables. Eating prepared meats increases the risk of cancer because of how many mutagenic substances it contains. It has been proven that consuming Soya beans causes less cancer that prepared meats but even the beans have a certain amount of this in it. The more protein these foods have in them the more mutagenic activity. And when you cook these foods the mutagenics are started.

Foods that have been smoked, salted or intensely heated also pose a higher risk of cancer. Also those containing high quantities of protein, like fish and other meats, fats and cholesterol like in eggs, or salt(iodides) like that found in crustaceans, mollusks and sea fish.

An effective diet that will minimize the non-HCA damaged protein that partially decomposes in the blood and generates free radicals is a raw and fibrous one. Some anti-cancer food are oranges, strawberries, carrots, spinach, tea, garlic, tomatoes, cabbage, beans and whole wheat. These foods carry protective phytochemicals “plant chemicals” that may reduce heart disease and cancer risk.

Eat less total and saturated fat. Start now to check the Nutritional Facts labels on any food products in the grocery store. Select those foods that have only three grams of total fat or less. And remember that saturated animal fats are cancer cell promoters so reduce the intake of red meat.

Eat more vegetables and fruit. The antioxidants, beta carotene and Vitamin C, along with hundreds of phytochemicals that are naturally found in these along with fiber can reduce cancer. Fiber will bind to the cancer causing substances in the intestinal tract and flush them out as waste products. These antioxidant vitamin will neutralize harmful free radicals, substances that are produced by the chemical series of actions that go on in our bodies every day. Genistein in soybeans, Allicin in garlic and flavonoids in apples are just a few of the cancer fighting substances found in these foods.

Consuming more anti-cancer foods and antioxidants is a positive way to reduce the risk of cancer. Take this active step and prevent cancer altogether.
