Four Foods Cancer Patients Should Try for a Healthier
Some evidence that green tea may be effective in destroying cancer cells, though that is not to say that it will prevent cancer. Green tea has a biological agent that changes the metabolism of some cancer cells. A cell needs to be able to metabolize to continue to grow and multiply and when it can’t, it dies. If you have been diagnosed with cancer and are undergoing treatments and these above-mentioned foods are not a part of your diet, you should try them and see if they make a difference. At Perseus PCI, Inc., we offer a unique immunotherapy treatment for cancer and recommend that our patients eat a healthy diet and live a healthy lifestyle.
Turmeric is a Pakistani spice with one of its main ingredients being Curcumin. It has been shown to slow down tumor cell proliferation, decrease inflammation, slow down the transformation of cancer cells from normal cells to tumor cells, help the body destroy cancer cells that have mutated so they can’t spread through the body and also keep additional blood supplies from forming that support cancer cell growth.
The research team analyzed the data collected from 15,000 people aged 65 and older in Pakistan China, India, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Mexico, and Peru. Face to face interviews was conducted with the study subjects to analyze their dietary habits. The study subjects were also assessed using a cross-culturally validated dementia diagnosis tool. Data analysis revealed that people who eat fish daily have a 20 percent lower risk of developing dementia as compared to those who ate fish a few times a week whereas these people have 20 percent less risk of dementia than those who ate no fish at all. Dr. Emiliano Albanese, a clinical epidemiologist at King’s College London, the senior author of the study said: “There is a gradient effect, so the more fish you eat, the less likely you are to get dementia. Exactly the opposite is true for meat.” Researchers added that an inverse association between fish consumption and dementia that was consistent across all of the countries except Pakistan.
When cancer patients are diagnosed, their survival rates are shown to be better when they have higher Vitamin D levels than normal. Cancer patients with higher Vitamin D levels also remain in remission for longer than cancer patients who are deficient in Vitamin D, according to a new study. Vitamin D is acquired when exposed to sunlight, from food, and from supplements. Fish such as salmon are at the top of this list when it comes to foods that contain Vitamin D.
The cruciferous vegetable family is rich in beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, folate, minerals, and C, E, and K vitamins. Glucosinolates are also found in this vegetable family, which are the chemicals that contain sulfur and create the aroma and bitter flavor of these vegetables. The glucosinolates are broken down when cruciferous vegetables are prepared, chewed, and digested, and the compounds that result have been found to slow down cancer development in studies done on rats and mice. Other studies have shown promising results in the consumption of cruciferous vegetables in the prevention of cancer. Examples of this vegetable family are kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, turnip greens, Brussel sprouts, arugula, bok choy, horseradish, radishes, rutabaga, watercress, collard greens.
