Fill up on these ingredients to fend off cancer.
Doctors have yet to find a definitive link between cancer and food. What they have found, however, is a correlation between certain diets — such as the Mediterranean Diet — and the potential for cancer reduction. Doctors call these diets (often specific to a culture or geographical region) anti-angiogenic, which means that they cut off the blood supply of cancerous tumors, starving them of the nutrients they need to grow. Here's a list of ingredients that are staples of anti-angiogenic diets.
Broccoli sprouts (and Brussels sprouts too!) are high in glucosinolates which are a compound that can prevent cancer in the body. These sprouts are best when eaten raw in order to absorb the full nutrient and cancer-fighting properties. Try making a raw slaw as a side dish or throw these greens into your salad for maximum benefits.
