No illness or disease is wanted by anyone, but among everything out there, one word scares all the people in the world: CANCER!
Even if there is no one dear to you that has been attacked by this atrocity, taking preventive measures against it is better than having to treat it; this is important because most types of cancer do not have visible symptoms until it’s too late and survival chances are below 50%, even with surgery and chemotherapy.
A healthy body is more prepared to face the threat of cancer, and strengthening it is the most important aspect of our lives. It is true that urban life is full of pollution and degrading agents like stress that take their toll on our bodies, but we can still fortify our immunity in order to avoid the unfortunate outcome of being diagnosed with cancer.
There is no magic pill that will make us cancer-proof, but Mother Nature is giving us a few helpful foods that can change our chances and keep cancer away.
#10 – Pomegranates
Active ingredient: Ellagic Acid
Pomegranates are extremely tasteful and they are filled with this magic ingredient that slows down and even stops cancer cells growth, while deactivating some cancer-causing compounds. Pomegranate seeds can be eaten as a healthy afternoon snack, offering the energy boost everyone needs daily, turned into healthy smoothies or added as a topping on ice-cream, yogurt or weekend cheesecakes.
Ellagic acid can also be found in blackberries, raspberries, walnuts, strawberries, cranberries, pecans and grapes, so the choice is unlimited.
