Help In Preventing Cancer – Juice Recipes
Sadly, cancer is the second most deadly disease in the United States. Statistics show that one out of every four people is diagnosed with cancer and unfortunately, each year more than 565,000 individuals die from this disease. The interesting thing about cancer is that many forms can be prevented.
For instance, a lifestyle without smoking would keep lung cancer at bay. You can also prevent many types of cancer or even fight existing cancer by the foods you eat. For this reason, many people have turned to juicing to provide the body with cancer-fighting vitamins and minerals while also enjoying a delicious beverage.
Of course, the best way to fight cancer is with early detection but this along with a healthier lifestyle can have a direct impact on your overall health. By making your own juice rather than choosing a store bought product you actually introduce the body to more nutrients but also avoid consuming certain chemicals and preservatives, not to mention flavor is far better.
The key is to choose fresh fruits and vegetables that are high in carotenoids, which work as blockers against cancer. You also want ingredients high in lycopene, which is a strong antioxidant that has been proven to fight cancer, specifically prostate cancer. Even fiber is critical in that it helps flush the colon, thereby helping prevent this form of cancer.
Some of the best fruits and vegetables to use for juicing that help prevent and fight cancer include carrots, strawberries, watermelon, tomatoes, and apples. However, you can use a wide variety of other fruits, vegetables, and herbs, as well as nuts, seeds, and whole grains. We wanted to provide you with a few examples of actual juice recipes for various forms of cancer.
Keep in mind there is no guarantee that juicing will prevent or eliminate existing cancer but these ingredients have been studied for many years and medical reports show they are in fact beneficial for this particular disease.
