Did you know that 50% of your daily food intake should consist of fruits and vegetables? Yet, what kind of fruits and vegetables? Thanks to our friends at MD Anderson and “Anticancer: A New Way of Life” by David Servan-Schreiber, we’ve compiled a list of fruits and vegetables that can help to prevent cancer.
Cruciform Vegetables – Prevents precancerous cells from developing into malignant tumors and promotes the suicide of cancer cells
Cabbage

Broccoli
Cauliflower
Avoid boiling cabbage and broccoli because it destroys benefits
Vegetables and Fruits Rich in Carotenoids – Inhibits the growth of cancer cells
Carrots
Yams
Sweet potatoes
Squash
Pumpkins
Tomatoes
Persimmons
Apricots
Tomatoes
Beets
Spinach
Berries – Slows tumor growth and blocks the transformation of environmental carcinogens into toxic substances
Blackberries
Raspberries
Strawberries
Blueberries
*** Ellagic acid also detoxifies cells.  It blocks the transformation of environmental carcinogens into toxic substances and stimulates the elimination of toxins. The toxins we are referring to here are dangerous because they interact with DNA and provoke potentially life-threatening genetic mutations. Hence, ellagic acid is a kind of supermolecule that acts on several fronts.
Stone Fruit – Blocks the transformation of environment carcinogens into toxic substances
Plums
Peaches
Apricots
Nectarines
*** These fruits, particularly plums, are at least as rich in anticancer elements as small berries
Citrus Fruit – Anti-inflammatory
Oranges
Tangerines
Lemons
Grapefruits
Organic skins can be steeped in tea or hot water
