There is a lot that is still unknown about the cause(s) of cancer. However, experts agree that you can prevent cancer with diet by eating healthy because certain foods can make the cells of the body healthy, thereby reducing the risk of developing the disease.

1.     Eat a Lot of Natural Foods

Certain pesticides have been linked to a number of different cancers.

Therefore eating natural foods, which leads to a reduction of the amount of chemicals you allow to enter your body, is one way to prevent cancer through diet.

Grow some of the vegetables you need for cooking. Tomatoes, egg plants can easily be grown in pots or in used canned tomato cans.

2.     Consume a Lot of Fruits and Vegetables

Cancer occurs when body cells are damaged and grow abnormally. Fruits and vegetables can help you to keep your weight in check and also help prevent certain types of cancers.

Berries, apples, sour sup, pawpaw, tangerines, oranges, pineapples, mangoes, grapefruits, guavas, and shea nuts are all fruits you must consume regularly. This is a good way to prevent cancer with food.

Also, eat a lot of dark-colored fruits such as berries, red apples, plums, gala apples, sweet cherries, pecans, and granny smith apples, for they are rich in antioxidants.

Vegetables such as tomatoes, cabbage, carrots, cassavas, cauliflowers, potatoes, swedes, turnips, yams, lettuce, spinach, French beans, and egg plants should also feature regularly in your diet.

3.     Eat Spices and Herbs

Spices and herbs such as cinnamon, ginger, curry, pepper, garlic, onions, and peppermint are also rich in antioxidants, and eating them is one way to prevent cancer with diet.

Take a cup of cinnamon tea in the morning instead of a beverage, add ginger to your soup, or cook your polished rice with garlic.

4.     Eat a Lot of Fish Low in Saturated Fat

Inflammation in the body has been linked to cancer.

Salmon, mackerel, and sardines are all kinds of fish which contain low amounts of saturated fats. They also contain substances that reduce inflammation in the body, thereby helping to prevent cancer.

5.     Get Enough Vitamin D

People who have high levels of Vitamin D in their blood have a lower risk of developing certain kind of cancers such as breast , colon, ovarian, renal, pancreatic , and prostate cancer.

Vitamin D can be found in:

  • Fish liver oils such as halibut liver oil and cod liver oil.
  • Egg yolk.
  • Butter or margarine.

6.     Avoid Eating Red Meat

Red meat such as ham, hotdogs, bacon, chevron, beef, pork, and goat meat have been linked to some cancers such as colon, prostate, pancreatic, and kidney cancer.

Reducing your intake of these meats, or avoiding them altogether, is one way to prevent cancer with diet.

Rather, eat meats such as chicken (without the skin), turkey, Guinea fowl, quails, duck meat, and rabbit meat.

When you are processing your meat, avoid frying or grilling it because chemicals which cause cancer form when meat is cooked at high temperatures.

7.     Eat a Lot of Fiber

According to research, when you increase your daily fiber intake by 10 grams it reduces the risk of getting colon cancer by 10%.

Fiber can be found in foods such as:

  • Wheat.
  • Oats.
  • Unpolished rice.
  • Bran bread.
  • Oranges.
  • Corn.
  • Cabbage.

8.     Drink Green Tea

Instead of drinking ordinary tea, take a cup of green tea every morning thirty minutes after eating your breakfast, if you want to prevent cancer with diet.

Green tea contains antioxidants which protect the cells of the body from suffering damage as well as helping to boost the immune system, in addition to activating enzymes that prevent the growth of cancerous tumors.

To increase the effectiveness of the green tea, drink it without milk and sugar. Just add a few drops of lemon juice.
