Can Food Starve Cancer?

 Angiogenesis gives a scientific explanation of the link between food and cancer.


Having had three separate breast cancers William Li's explanation of angiogenesis has special real meaning.

Anti-angiogenesis is about preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor and is a new direction in cancer care.

The simple way each of us can use apply anti-angiogenesis to our daily lives is to eat cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines of cancer.

Many people have small cancers in their bodies that do not develop because they lack a blood supply.

Foods that are anti-angiogenic include red grapes, strawberries, raspberries, tumeric, dark chocolate.

Anti-angiogenesis drugs that work by starving cancers are currently achieving results and further trials are being developed.

Myself, I am currently clear of cancer but each day in addition to the treatment my doctors offer I live a sustainable lifestyle and eat organic, anti-angiogeneic foods.

Very interesting. We've been eating many of the foods listed for 6 years now, including taking Turmeric every day since my husband's successful fight with colon cancer. His Oncologist suggested he start on it while he was being treated for cancer, and we've been on it ever since.

I found you on ExposeYourBlog.
