Fill up on these ingredients to fend off cancer.
Doctors have yet to find a definitive link between cancer and food. What they have found, however, is a correlation between certain diets — such as the Mediterranean Diet — and the potential for cancer reduction. Doctors call these diets (often specific to a culture or geographical region) anti-angiogenic, which means that they cut off the blood supply of cancerous tumors, starving them of the nutrients they need to grow. Here's a list of ingredients that are staples of anti-angiogenic diets.
Mangos contain two natural chemicals that are anti-angiogenic, meaning they starve cancer by cutting off its blood supply. The fruit can also help to boost your immune system, lower inflammation in the body, and turn on protective genes in the body that can kill cancer cells.
