Foods that can protect you against cancer

Written by Neill Abayon

There is no single food or its substance that can save you from cancer. But the scientists from the American Institute for Cancer Research have named 11 foods that can protect you from cancer. To use them effectively, you have to use the right combination of foods in a predominantly plant-based diet.

The facts are mounting that the minerals, vitamins and phytochemicals in plant foods interact to provide extra cancer protection and this idea is called synergy. Here is the list of those 11 foods that can protect you against cancer:

1. Beans

2. Berries

3. Cruciferous Vegetables

4. Dark Green Leafy Vegetables

5. Flaxseed

6. Garlic

7. Grapes and Grape Juice

8. Green Tea

9. Soy

10. Tomatoes

11. Whole Grains
