Protecting Against Cancer

Cancer of the stomach, bowel, breast, cervix, pancreass, liver, and mouth can be strongly linked to your diet. Eating a diet high in both soluble and insoluble fiber help to safeguard us against the development of colon and possibly breast cancer.

Whole grains, brown rice, dried beans and lentils, and vegetables are a good source of insoluble fiber. Fresh produce provides beneficial amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta carotene, as well as, protective antioxidants and photochemicals that fight free radicals and stimulates the body’s defenses against a range of cancers. They are also high in phytonutrients which are plant-based chemicals that have been identified as active compounds in disease prevention. These compounds help regulate bodily functions and maintain health.
