Research shows that eating these fall foods can help fight cancer!

Since most cancers are due to an unhealthy lifestyle, diet is a major key in prevention.  Eating a variety of these seasonal foods may offer extra protection against cancer.

Cranberries contain elegiac acid which, in laboratory tests, has been shown to help prevent mutations in DNA, disarm cancer-causing agents, and help prevent the growth of tumors!  Buy them without added sugar.

Oranges, lemons, and limes contain limonene, found in laboratory studies to help block lung and breast cancers and to get cancer cells to self-destruct!

Tangerines (also known as mandarin oranges) contain tangeretin and nobilitin, which research has shown to be extremely potent against certain types of breast cancer.  Japanese researchers found that tangeretin could also inhibit the growth of leukemia cells!

Pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and winter squashes contain beta-carotene, which gives them their orange color and helps protect them from diseases.  Research has shown that a diet rich in beta-carotene can help protect against a variety of cancers, including stomach, esophagus, lungs, and colon.  Pumpkin also contains phenolic acids, chemicals that bind to potential carcinogens and help prevent them from being absorbed!

Stock up on these anti-cancer foods, and eat a variety of them often.  Buy them organic when possible to help reduce cancer-causing toxins.

1 Corinthians 10:31–“Whatever you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for God’s glory!”
