You don’t need to be a Zen master or a tea aficionado to reap the benefits of green tea. Green tea is a drink that is full of these antioxidants called catechins. Catechins have been linked to the prevention and reduction of cancer risks in numerous studies. Catechins from green tea have shown the ability to reduce the size of tumors as well as reduce the potential growth for said tumors. If green tea isn’t your style then you can opt for black tea as well which also is filled with catechins. Either way, make sure to have a cup daily incorporated into your anti cancer diet. Take the tea hot or cold, the choice is up to you as there is little difference in the long run.
Carrots are no strangers to healthy diets and they make an appearance in our anti cancer list with ease. Carrots are packed with nutrients and antioxidants including the previously mentioned beta carotene. Beta carotene, as we’ve talked about already, has been linked to cell membrane protection as well as the reduction in growth of cancer cells. Imbibing carrots and reaping the benefits of these phytochemicals can lead to a reduction in cancer risk related to your mouth, stomach, and esophagus. Carrots are an easy on the go snack so you have no reason not to keep them in your diet.
