The need for us to always eat healthy meals is very important for our existence. Our diets and lifestyle go a long way in determining how strong our organs would be even as we grow old.
There are several diseases which are in vogue today, and cancer seems to be one of them. Majority of times, different cancers originate from the kinds of things which we eat that are not helping our body in anyway.
Cancer is a dangerous disease which does not have a particular cure for now. The much we can do to reduce the growth of these cells is eat healthy. This is why this article reveals two (2) things we should eat often to achieve this.1. One of such things is feeding more on fruits. Do you know that fruits contain so many nutrients which help to inhibit the growth of cancer cells in the body?.
This is because fruits are loaded with varieties of antioxidants and phytochemicals such as beta carotene, lycopene, magnesium, calcium, potassium, vitamin C and many others.
All these join together in fighting any malignant cell that may want to spring up in the body. Some examples of such fruits are cucumber, water melon, berries, kiwi, mango, carrot etc.
The nutrients from these fruits help to decrease the risk of Prostrate cancer, pancreas, lung, throat, mouth and stomach cancer.
2. The second thing we should always eat often is vegetables. This is another healthy meal that is packed with so much nutrients that help to fight against free radicals in the body. Just like fruits, vegetables also have powerful antioxidants like lycopene, magnesium, allicin, lutein etc. They also contain minerals which help in fighting against cancer in the body.
Examples of vegetables include spinach, pumpkin, water leaf, scent leaf, broccoli, garlic, cabbage, legumes, tomato, cauliflower etc.
Consuming these often can keep you away from the doctor for long. I hope this article helps us to eat right.
