The Best Anti-Cancer Foods

by jenny sansouci on September 19, 2011

This past weekend was the Institute for Integrative Nutrition fall conference in NYC! Included in the amazing speaker lineup was Dr. Joel Fuhrman – founder of the Center for Nutritional Medicine, family physician and author of many best-selling books on health.

One of Dr. Fuhrman’s main focuses is on eating for disease prevention. He shared with us his top cancer-fighting foods:

  • Greens
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Beans
  • Berries
  • Seeds

That list was exciting to me because I LOVE all of those foods — but even cooler are these 2 facts:

Eating mushrooms every day (any kind of mushroom, and even just 1 mushroom per day) reduces breast cancer risk by 64%!

If you add drinking green tea and eating green vegetables every day to those mushrooms, you reduce your risk of breast cancer by 89%!!!

I think this is absolutely fascinating. And these foods aren’t only good for breast cancer prevention, but reduce the risk of all cancers.

“Green vegetables are a MIRACLE FOOD for prevention of cancer.” – Dr. Fuhrman

This recipe has lots of mushrooms, onions and greens: Veggies with Spicy Peanut Ginger Sauce

So get in the kitchen and start eating for health! 🙂

I guess I’m doing fairly well already! Mushrooms are a favorite, and I think I’ll bump my occasional green tea up to an every day tea!! Thanks for the info!
