Cancer Fighting Food, Videos, What I Did

Anti-Angiogenesis: Foods That Fight Cancer

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
-Hippocrates, father of medicine, 431 B.C.

An unhealthy diet is a proven cause of disease. In fact, three out of four Americans die every year from diet related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes. So it’s exciting to see scientific research proving what natural health practitioners have been telling us for the last 2,400 years. 

In his talk “Can we eat to starve cancer?”, Dr. William Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, i.e. eating foods that prevent the formation of blood vessels that tumors need to grow.

The crucial first (and best) step is eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game like: berries, cruciferous veggies, green tea, and garlic.

Eating 5-9 servings of fruit and vegetables per day greatly reduces your risk for all diet-related diseases.

The foundation of my anti-cancer strategy was consuming 15-20 servings of fruits and vegetables per day by juicing, eating my giant cancer-fighting saladand drinking my anti-cancer fruit smoothie.

Of course food quality matters. Fresh organic produce is best. 










Note: I think it would be wise for cancer patients to avoid red wine and tuna, and to consume dark chocolate (raw cacao) sparingly. Enjoy the talk!

    Wow – you can add ubiquinol to your list of anti-angiogenic substances! Best food source of ubiquinol? Grassfed beef liver, of course! Makes a strong case for adding Liver ‘n Onions to the dinner menu weekly!
    By the way, thanks SO much for your website. I’ve sent the link to my hubby’s aunt with ovarian cancer who lives near Memphis. Thinking maybe you and/or Dr. Smothers can help her with a natural approach and detox as she comes off her chemo soon. Thanks again!

    All this information is great, but the food sources listed for anti-angiogenesis must not have any pesticides and herbacides used in it’s growing process as to get the most from the leaves and produce. This all makes perfect sense and will do all I can to spread the word. Thank you for the information and will alter my eating habits to see if it’s true. Thank you.

    This has been a very fascinating find for me. I have often preached, “our bodies speak to us”, at least I know my body speaks to me. At different times in any given year throughout my life, and i am now 43 and still listening, my body has had cravings for certain foods. Typically when i was not feeling well, very sick, in the hospital, or any other strains on my body a certain food was craved. I now realize most of the foods i have craved were foods that were high in Anti angiogenesis. It amazes me that throughout my life i have wondered what my body was telling me and now i believe i know. Thank you mind and body!
