Stick this in your pie hole (alternatively titled - Cancer Fighting Foods)

Don't know what to cook for Christmas dinner? Consider this - Did you know that certain types of food help prevent cancer? Even breast cancer specifically? Well, you do now :)

Add these goodies to your dinner table and know that not only are you eating healthy, you could be doing yourself more good than you thought.

Yellow and orange vegetables are high in beta-carotene and this is linked lower rates of breast cancer. Carrots are the best source for this, and the beta-carotene in baby carrots is even more absorbable than that of regular carrot, and it's 500% more absorbable cooked than raw.

Cruciferous (or cabbage type) vegetables, like radish, broccoli, cauliflower, rutabaga, cabbage, turnips, and turnip greens, contain indole-3-carbinol, which lowers the levels of a type of estrogen that may promote breast cancer.

Tomatoes, in all forms, from sun dried to ketchup, contain lycopene. It has been shown that people who have a diet high in lycopene are linked to lower rates of breast and prostate cancer.

Grapes had awesome antioxidant cancer fighting power, and they make a really pretty centre piece. Go for Concord grapes if you can ;)

Foods high in omega-3, like cold water fish, and nuts and seeds are great cancer fighters. Studies have shown that women with higher omega-3 tissue levels have lower rates of breast cancer.

Cherries will not only make a pretty addition to your grapes as a centre piece, they have also proven to inhibit cancer in rats.

And because none of us want to sit here all day, here's the rest of the list:

Whole grains

Butter NOT margarine

Green tea

Olive oil

Garlic (hint: after you've peeled and chopped, leave to rest for 10 mins, this will allow all those cancer fighting goodies to form)





Add some of these goodies to your Christmas table, and not only will you have a happy, healthy Christmas, you'll have a cancer fighting one too.

On that note, and seeing as how this our last post for 2009, we'd like to thank you all so much for helping to spread the word, and we wish you all a very merry Christmas.

Boobie Love ;)
