Doctors have found that a diet rich in the right foods, such as superfoods, can prevent over 50% of cancers. For those that have been eating superfoods for quite some time, this is old news. Just the mainstream media is behind on understanding all of this. It’s a matter of science catching up to natural methods and approaches. Sadly, science must be used merely as a confirmation tool, in a world that is conditioned to believe that science must confirm all things. Where they have merged together, as of late, is with medicine and nutritional research in regard to cancer prevention techniques and strategies.

Vitamins and Minerals

Although science did not confirm this until later, apricots and peppers (dried out) are a potent anti-cancer superfood that everyone should take. Almost everyone can come up with a few more to add to this list. Though there are some others with similar properties, these are just a couple we thought to mention. In fact, what gives apricots their distinctive color is the high amount of beta carotene that they possess. You’ll also find lycopene and high amounts of vitamin C. Not only will you get the vitamins that you need, but you also have the benefit of the ingredients in the superfoods that fight against cancer. There are so many sources for these particular beneficial ingredients, we only mentioned dried peppers to give you an alternative.

When consuming superfoods, it’s helpful to add nuts to your diet, as these help support the properties of many plant foods. Phytochemicals have many anti-cancer properties, and nuts work with these powerful nutrients to help this process. Not everyone is familiar with Brazil nuts, but these are among the best kind of nuts you can consume for health purposes. One good reason to eat these tasty nuts is that they are a good source of a crucial trace mineral -selenium. This mineral supports many essential reactions and processes in the body. In addition, this nut is an excellent source of fiber, protein, and ellagic acid which is a cancer fighter.


Everyone is familiar with raspberries and most people like them, and this fruit contains the valuable cancer-fighting substance ellagic acid. You’ll see that name pop-up in many discussions about cancer-fighting superfoods. Ellagic acid is able to pinpoint cancer cells and cause them to die more quickly. Equally important, it does not harm normal cells. What’s also so good about raspberries is that you can store them in your freezer and this will not damage the ellagic acid component. There are various ways to consume raspberries, such as jam, jelly and preserves and all of these can provide you with the same benefits.

What’s so amazing about superfoods and cancer is this was not mainstream 15 or even 10 years ago. Superfoods were once written about in some alternative health books and articles, but the idea was far from mainstream.

It is now becoming widely known that good nutrition and superfoods can be an effective way to maintain health.
