Our Cancer Fighting Snacker Basket is full of antioxidant-rich snacks to help prevent and fight cancer.
Foods rich in beta-carotene
can help counter the effects of free-radicals and may prevent, or even reverse, some precancerous conditions. Carotenoids may inhibit the growth of cancer cells, and studies suggest that high food intakes of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin reduce the risk for lung cancer. Cryptoxanthin and alpha-carotene have been found to decrease the chance of developing cervical cancer. Leading food sources include apricots, carrots, corn, acorn squash, spinach, sweet potatoes, and sweet red peppers.
Other cancer-fighting snacks include antioxidant-rich blueberries
, strawberries, and apples; almonds (almonds may reduce risk of bladder, lung, prostate, cervical, and colon cancer); and, everyone's favorite, chocolate
The fucoidan in kelp has been shown in studies to have the ability to induce apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells.
