Foods that fight cancer in women

As a woman, the food you eat affects many things about your health, including your risk of getting serious diseases like cancer. This deadly disease can be less likely to happen if you eat well. The type of food a person eats has a big effect on whether or not they get cancer and how fast it spreads.

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States right now, and it is still on the rise, especially liver, pancreas, and breast cancer. It is important to remember that many common foods can help slow the growth of cancer in women.

But Healthline says that the foods I'll talk about in this article can help fight cancer in women.

1. Cassis

Researchers have found that this super spice can stop cancer cells from spreading and shrink tumors. Cinnamon is well-known for its many health benefits, such as lowering the risk of breast cancer and reducing pain and swelling.

Also, the essential oil from cinnamon can slow the growth of cancer cells in the head and neck. To stop cancer, you can start by eating half a tablespoon of cinnamon every day.

2. A watermelon

Watermelons are full of anti-oxidants, vitamins A, C, and beta carotene, and are a great way to get these nutrients. They also have the famous cancer-fighting chemical lycopene, which is found in tomatoes. Women who eat watermelons often are less likely to get cancer of the lung or breast.

3. Nuts.

Some types of cancer, like colorectal, pancreatic, and endometrial cancer, are less likely to happen if you eat nuts. Recent studies have found that Brazil nuts can help prevent lung cancer and that mice walnuts can slow the growth of breast cancer cells a lot.

It's a good idea to eat a variety of nuts every day, because eating more nuts is linked to a lower chance of getting this disease.

4. Green Tea

Green tea can lower your risk of getting cancer because it has a lot of antioxidants, which fight cancer by getting rid of free radicals. Recent studies have found that women who drink green tea are less likely to get oral, skin, colon, prostate, stomach, and breast cancer.
