A balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and fiber is crucial in preventing and combating cancer. In our Deluxe Cancer Fighting Basket, we've selected some of the most powerful dietary weapons known to researchers.
Foods rich in beta-carotene
can help counter the effects of free-radicals and may prevent, or even reverse, some precancerous conditions. Sweet potatoes are a great source, so munch away on our Sweet Potato chips.
For a powerful cancer-fighting meal, enjoy the organic spinach pasta with the artichoke pesto. Artichokes have great cancer-fighting properties, and our Artichoke Pesto can be used as a dip as well.
Diets containing high amounts of vitamin E are thought to be associated with a reduced risk of breast, colon, prostate, and possibly other cancers. In addition to its antioxidant actions, vitamin E may enhance the immune system’s ability to neutralize cell damage that can contribute to cancer. Food sources include avocados, almonds, broccoli, sunflower seeds, brazil nuts, peanuts, and mangoes.Green Tea
contains the antioxidant EGCG which sets in motion cell death in cancer cells, not healthy ones. EGCG may also enhance the body's natural antioxidant system which encourages the elimination of damaging free radicals. Other preliminary research indicates that green tea can help to combat breast, stomach, and skin cancer.

, almonds, walnuts, and, everyone's favorite, chocolate
