According to the latest researches, approximately 300 out of every 100,000 Americans are diagnosed with a  certain type of cancer every year.

Cancer is a potentially fatal disease that should not be taken lightly. As it affects so many people, it’s no wonder that so many of us are interested in finding every possible way of cancer.

It cannot be emphasized enough how much is the quality of the food we eat important for our health and how many diseases can be prevented with the right nutrition.

This list features 20 best tips to prevent cancer.

Blueberries

Blueberries

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes to antioxidant power, fresh blueberries are number one, providing high concentrations of anthocyanins, which may restrict cancer cell proliferation.

Tea

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both green and white tea contain EGCG, a plant chemical and antioxidant that may protect cell health.

Ginger

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ginger may reduce the risk of colon cancer by suppressing inflammation in the digestive zone.

Kale and apples

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kale contains isothiocyanates, which purges the body of carcinogens, and apples appear to have anticancer effects on the colon.

Get Strolling

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A sharp, daily 30-minute walk can improve sleep and energy levels and thus reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer.

Yoga

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yoga strengthens the immune system, relieves stress and makes you feel better in every way.

Study the health history of your family

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ask your oldest relatives about your family health history. Knowing what could possibly be in your DNA can be more than helpful in determining which diseases to be screened for and how often.

Do not suppress emotions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cancer can affect both mental health and physical health. When you see your oncologist,  don’t forget to bring up any mood issues.

Breathe

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Breathe out and in. A daily five-minute session of slow, measured breathing can help relieve the negative effects that stress has on physical and emotional health.

Fiber Focus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oats are a good source of fiber, which, in addition to its antioxidant properties, can also ward off hunger by keeping blood sugar levels stable and making the body feel fuller longer.

Drink Coffee

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Regular consumption of black coffee is related to a lower risk of basal cell skin cancer.

Organic Food

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s always best to choose pesticide-free fruits and vegetables whenever possible.

Berries

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cranberries, blackberries and cherries are rich in anthocyanins – the antioxidant compounds which may slow the growth of certain cancers.

Go Green

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Broccoli is a source of compounds called indoles, which have inhibited cancer growth in lab studies.

Red and Hot

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Red pepper flakes contain capsaicin, which can damage cancer cells by attacking their energy source without hurting the healthy nearby cells.

Tomato

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which reduces the risk of lung and stomach cancers.

Preheat The Oven

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We get more cancer-fighting lycopene from cooked tomatoes than from raw ones.

Eggs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to boasting proteins and vital lipids, eggs also contain antioxidant properties that may help prevent cancer.

Try Turmeric

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This golden-hued Indian spice gets its color from a pigment called curcumin, which is also an antioxidant that fights inflammation.
