How Nature's Foods Can Prevent Cancer
There are a number of ways that foods can prevent cancer, yet the most significant is by means of biochemical transformation. Essentially, foods such as those in the cruciferous family (e.g., kale, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts, etc.) contain sulfur compounds that are known to convert fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble complexes, which can then be eliminated from the body via the kidneys. An excellent discussion of this can be found in Clinical Purification by Gina Nick, ND. Other food factors are known to act as antioxidants, keeping cells from being overrun by free radicals. Some foods and herbs bolster the immune system, enabling toxins to be engulfed and flushed from the body. And still other foods and herbs such as cilantro can chelate heavy, toxic metals such as mercury. Other detoxifying foods and herbs include red clover blossoms, burdock root, licorice, Oregon grape root, cat's claw and kelp.
