Foods That Heal

"There is not one food or one reason why people get cancer, but there are many foods known to help protect against cancer, and eating 'cancer preventing foods and living a healthy lifestyle helps protect against cancer,", says specialist dietician Ashleigh Caradas. Ashleigh believes that some studies have shown a link between, for example beetroot, broccoli or blueberries in preventing cancer, they cannot be seen on their own as a cure by any means. Ideally, a dietician should look at the diet as a whole, as well as other factors, like weight, stress levels and lifestyle behaviors and make a firm assessment on your cancer risks. The same goes for other diseases, like heart disease or diabetes, where a number of factors, including diet, play a role.

She repeats, "Another issue is that of weight loss. Peanuts or olive oil, for example, can aid in weight loss, but eating more than a small amount cand promote weight gain. In small amounts (1 Tbs olive oil or 3 Tbs nuts per day), these foods could help with weight loss by supplying needed fatty acids and by helping to curb the appetite. Never think that to lose weight eating more is better.” Below is a list of good foods,
