My Top 10 Cancer-Fighting Greens

Self-defence against cancer - Øyvind Torp - Synergy effect of anti-cancer foods

Nature´s cancer-fighting phytochemicals can provide useful help in your fight against cancer. These chemicals are molecules that possess the capacity to interfere with various processes associated with the development of cancer.

A diet containing a mixture of fruits, vegetables, and drinks such as green tea contains approximately 1 to 2 grams of these phytochemicals, which corresponds to ingesting between 5000 and 10000 different compounds.

These chemicals can work in different ways, and the most crucial ones being their anti-angiogenic properties, their cytotoxicity against tumor cells, lowering inflammatory factors, and beneficial effects on the immune system. 

Don´t forget to have a variety of greens on your plate. 

Combining a variety of anti-cancer greens is smart because the synergy created between active chemicals in plants provides a considerable bonus effect. Combining two individual foods can be more effective than the added impact each food has because nutrients working in synergy means that the added effect can rise to three or maybe four times the expected outcome.

An excellent way to get these cancer-fighting agents is to eat a variety of vegetables, and even better to choose the most effective ones. I select greens from this list every day.

Top 10 Cancer-Fighting Greens List

The most effective vegetables, in my opinion, ranked from 1 to 10, are listed below.[1]

  1. Garlic, shallots, onions, leeks
  2. Brussels sprouts, kale, green kale, Savoy kale
  3. Cauliflower
  4. Broccoli
  5. Red beetroot
  6. Spinach
  7. Asparagus
  8. Bracken shoots
  9. Celery
  10. Turnip

[1] The list is based on researcher Richard Beliveau’s work on which vegetables can be most effective against cancer.
