According to some researchers, these seven food products are effective against cancer and prevent the development of tumors. You will not feel hungry as these products are common parts of your daily diet and they are black chocolate, tomatoes, green tea, red wine, blueberries and curry.

According to scientists, these food products are even more effective than conventional chemotherapy.

The secret power of these ingredients

The secret power of these ingredients is in their ability to stop the blood supply to the cancerous cells. They also contain anti-angiogenesis properties. Angiogenesis is a formation of blood vessels in the body. This process is active at some point in life. For instance, it is active in newborn babies, while in adults it becomes active in case of an injury, when capillaries and tissues need to be restored.

Usually, the inhibitors prevent creation of new blood vessels, but sometimes they are formed and supply the cancer cells with nutrients and allow them to spread through the blood. In fact, cancerous cells release activators of angiogenesis themselves. These molecules that are released trick the body into creating new blood vessels that will provide the cancerous cells with oxygen and nutrients needed for growth, development and spreading.

Fortunately, there are medicines that prevent angiogenesis. These medicines don’t harm the normal body cells, which is not the case with chemotherapy. They only prevent the creation of new blood vessels.

Therefore, we can prevent cancer and angiogenesis by consuming the right types of food.

Here are the food products which act as inhibitors of angiogenesis:

Tomatoes

According to one study, carried out at Harvard University, people who consume tomato sauce or cooked tomatoes several times a month, reduce the chances of prostate cancer by 50%. Lycopene in tomatoes prevents angiogenesis.

The lycopene levels in tomatoes increase when tomatoes are cooked or fried on high temperature.

Turmeric

Turmeric is extremely healthy, effective against angiogenesis and melts body fat.

Red wine

According to medical studies, resveratrol is an antioxidant that reduces the chances of cardiovascular issues, repairs damaged DNA caused by radiation, kills bacteria, improves concentration, prevents cancer, etc. Resveratrol should be consumed on a daily basis. Bordeaux and Pinot Noir are the richest wines when resveratrol is considered.

Green tea and coffee

These two drinks are as effective as chemotherapy. Moreover, they don’t cause the serious side effects that chemo does.

Raspberries and blueberries

The phytochemicals in these fruits protect from cancer and angiogenesis and reduce oxidative stress.

Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate destroys the cancerous cells, improves your mood and benefits your cardiovascular system.
