21 Foods That Can Help Reduce The Risk Of Cancer

3. Whole Grain

It’s always a good option to prefer whole grains over refined grains to reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Recent research also suggests that you should consume whole grains daily as part of your anti-cancer diet.

According to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), whole grain products contain a number of health-promoting ingredients (fibre, vitamin E, selenium, lignans and phenols) that give these foods a high potential anti-cancer effect. The AICR’s most recent report on colorectal cancer shows strong evidence that daily consumption of 90 grammes of whole grains reduces colorectal cancer risk by 17%. Smaller amounts of whole grains provide some, but less, protection; larger amounts provide even more.

 

4. Garlic

Several studies show an association between increased garlic consumption and a lower risk of certain cancers, including stomach, colon, esophageal, pancreatic, and breast cancer.

According to the National Cancer Institute, an analysis of data from seven populations found that the more raw and cooked garlic consumed, the lower the risk for stomach and colon cancer. Laboratory studies show that garlic compounds support DNA repair, slow the growth of cancer cells and inhibit inflammation. Each clove of garlic contains a variety of phytochemicals such as flavonoids, which are also found in blueberries and whose anti-cancer properties have been well studied.
