Can Food Starve 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.
