Anti Cancer Foods

There is no doubt in the importance of fruits and vegetables in the prevention and fight against cancer. Fruits and vegetables contain large amounts of anticancer molecules, including antioxidants. The association between consumption of fruits and vegetables (separately) and prevention of cancer is scientifically proven. Fruits and vegetables are powerful tools to reduce the majority of cancers, including cancers of the lung, mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, breast, colon and rectum. 

During your cancer treatment or whatever food program you use for cancer prevention, it is important to increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. However, there are some that have more curative and preventive effects against cancer: berries, citrus fruits, cruciferous, alliaceous (onion, garlic, and others) and tomato. Refer to this table below; it classifies them in descending order:
