Tips to Prevent and Combat Cancer

Sadly, cancer is still one of the most threatening diseases which claims lives on a daily basis. Up your fighting chance at beating cancer with the following lifestyle changes.

Turn to Turmeric
The golden spice, which many call 'poor man's gold' (referring to saffron, often termed as 'gold'), can help to block brain-tumour formation. I often add it to chicken, eggs, any sort of protein, and it is especially tasty in rice. Adding turmeric is easier than you think, and colours potatoes bright yellow, which make a fun side dish for kids.



The active compound curcumin can also help protects against oestrogen-mimicking chemicals - known cancer-causing agents. If you can't stomach the taste, try tumeric supplements.

Move your Body
Exercise could help ward off cancer. I discussed options with the Macmillan nurses when a family member suffered with cancer, and they told me it could reduce the risk of bowel cancer, and probably prostate, breast, lung and endometrial (uterine lining) cancers.



One of the nurses confided that running is akin to taking Prozac and Ritalin because like the drugs, exercise elevates serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters. Why run the risk? Get moving, worst is you'll get fit.

Drink your Greens
We all have cancer cells in our bodies but a healthy immune system will detect and destroy some 400 daily.



A fresh green juice every day will flood the body with anti-cancer enzymes, help detoxify and improve oxygen transport. Cancer cells cannot live in an oxygenated body.

Sip Almond Milk
Cows milk contains high levels of insulin-like growth factor (IGF1), which may increase the risk of breast and prostate cancer. Almond milk contains potent anti-cancer nutrients, including selenium and magnesium. Plus, it won't cause indigestion, bloating, or the sinus problems associated with cows milk.



Almond milk is quite creamy, and has an almost sweet taste. I generally buy the Blue Diamond brand, but any type of almond milk is great, and if it's organic, even better. Compare brands for sugar levels (some are heavily sweetened) and avoid carrageenan - an emulsifying agent that has been linked to various gastrointestinal disorders.

Get a Tan
Women with low levels of Vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin), in their breast tissue could have an increased risk of breast cancer.



I don't mean bake in the sun, or lie on the sunbed, but a quarter of an hour soaking up the natural rays is all you need. A female member of my family suffered with cancer during her youth, but beat it thanks to a strict, but healthy diet.
