If you want to avoid the cancer risk and to lower it, you may find some food, which is healthy and not just healthy, but anti-cancer as well! Let’s start with a drink. It is

 

THE GREEN TEA

 

Green tea is a very popular drink. It has been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer cells!

 

Let’s continue with a vegatable. It is

 

THE GARLIC

 

Some people think that it’s effective and it’s a kind of a magic plant. There are some statistical studies indicated that cancer occurs the least in those communities where garlic and onions are eaten regularly. Garlic contains:

 

Carbohydrates     33.06 g

– Sugars    1.00g

– Dietary fiber   2.1 g

Fat   0.5 g

Protein     6.39 g

– beta-carotene   5 ¦Ìg (0%)

Thiamine (vit. B1)      0.2 mg (17%)

Riboflavin (vit. B2)    0.11 mg (9%)

Niacin (vit. B3) 0.7 mg (5%)

Pantothenic acid (B5)   0.596 mg (12%)

Vitamin B6 1.235 mg (95%)

Folate (vit. B9) 3 ¦Ìg (1%)

Vitamin C   31.2 mg (38%)

Potassium   401 mg (9%)

Sodium      17 mg (1%)

Zinc 1.16 mg (12%)

Manganese 1.672 mg

Selenium 14.2 ¦Ìg

As you can see almost all these are very useful for your health.

The next vegatable is:

 

THE ONION

 

As we mentioned above – there are some statistical studies indicated that cancer occurs the least in those communities where garlic and onions are eaten regularly.

 

How about some fruit? The one I would like to suggest is:

 

THE APPLE

 

You probably know the famous proverb “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

Image an apple, with skin (edible parts). Its nutritional value per 100 g (3.5 oz) is:

 

Energy      218 kJ (52 kcal)

Carbohydrates     13.81 g

– Sugars    10.39 g

– Dietary fiber   2.4 g

Fat   0.17 g

Protein     0.26 g

Water       85.56 g

Vitamin A equiv. 3 ¦Ìg (0%)

Thiamine (vit. B1)      0.017 mg (1%)

Riboflavin (vit. B2)    0.026 mg (2%)

Niacin (vit. B3) 0.091 mg (1%)

Pantothenic acid (B5)   0.061 mg (1%)

Vitamin B6 0.041 mg (3%)

Folate (vit. B9) 3 ¦Ìg (1%)

Vitamin C   4.6 mg (6%)

Calcium     6 mg (1%)

Iron 0.12 mg (1%)

Magnesium   5 mg (1%)

Phosphorus 11 mg (2%)

Potassium   107 mg (2%)

Zinc 0.04 mg (0%)

Of course food is not everything. The good, healthy food have to be combined with good rest, good sport and positive life.
