The #1 Food You Must Eat To Prevent Cancer

Have you ever thought of improving your diet to prevent cancer?

I know I have and here's why.. 

Back in 2005 I was a freshman in highschool at Franklin Learning Center in Philadelphia.

After school I went to the YMCA to workout and play basketball..

Usually my mom picked me up in the evening once she got off but not this day.. my dad showed up.. 

It was strange and I was immediately worried.. 

My dad didn't seem bothered though, so I thought everything was fine.. He said to me "your mother isn't feeling well, that's why I'm here."

"not feeling well" I thought to myself, did she have the flu I asked? 

He said no but that she was at home and I'd soon be able to speak with her..

The rest of the car ride was quiet and gloomy for some odd reason, it was during the days when the sun would go down around 5pm and the air was mildly dry.. 

Besides, I was exhausted from playing basketball and running around all day. 

Only thing on my mind was my mom though.. what was going on, I wondered.

When I got home my mom seemed fine.. she hugged me and seemed pretty normal..

It felt like a boulder was lifted from my chest.. 

I asked her what was going on and that's when things took a dive.. 

She asked me what I'd do if she died.. 

I was speechless.. 

I felt how most teenagers would at the thought of losing a parent.. 

DEVASTATED to say the least.. 

You see, my mother and I have a really cool relationship.

She's always been very supportive and understanding.. 

I could ask her for anything and she'd go out her way to help.. 

One time she bought me a pair of really expensive Air Jordan's..

She probably had to work double overtime to be able to afford them..

It didn't matter to her,  she would always make sure her kids were happy and well taken care of.  

But anyway.. 

I stood there in complete silence for a while until I heard her say.. 

"Tell me what you're thinking" 

I said,

"Mom, I love you and the thought of losing you is terrifying, now please tell me what's going on"

She went on to tell me how she went to the doctor and they found a lump..

she was diagnosed with breast cancer.. 

Still a kid at the time (14 years old) I didn't really know much about cancer and what she was going through.

For the next year or so I'd watch my mother fight for her life. 

She attended a couple different treatment facilities during her battle..

The first cancer center she went to wasn't that good..

The results were up and down. 

Some days she'd be energetic and fine then some days I could barely speak with her she was so tired.. 

I must admit, she was strong throughout the treatments but I could tell she was hurting..

Then, after a while with no results.. something happened. 

She was admitted into one of the bigger cancer treatment centers.. 

I had mixed emotions.. 

I was happy because the doctors there would be better able to help her.. 

BUT, did it mean her cancer was getting worse?

I didn't know, and I think that's what made things more arduous..

Eventually, the chemotherapy and radiation treatments started to work..

She eventually beat the cancer!!

The day she came home was the happiest I'd been in a long time.. 

Going through this experience made me very cautious of my nutrition and diet.. 

I'm a born athlete but after this experience I started paying a heck of a lot more attention to my nutrition and diet.. 

"If you don't take care of your body.. where will you live?"

Mohamed, thanks a lot for sharing your story. I’m glad that your mother was healed of cancer and has this information to help combat it from reoccurring. I am definitely going to start eating walnuts and pecans now, since they are found to be the best at fighting cancer. I’m going to also drink lemon water more, since lemons are rated high on the list too. Lately, I’ve been eating a clove of garlic a few times a week before bed. I found out that garlic has numerous health benefits – fighting cancer being one of them. Eating it in the morning or during the day isn’t a good idea though, because other people can smell the garlic on your breath – even if you’re only breathing. Not a pleasant scent.

Hey Chandra!

Thanks for your kind words, they made me feel good 🙂

    Cancer prevention definitely requires more awareness.

It’s funny you mentioned garlic, I used to take garlic pills a while back to see what effect it would have on my body. Never know it fought cancer tho. I might have to put them back in rotation.

Wow, it must have been really tough seeing your mom go through chemo and radiation. But I’m glad to hear that she beat cancer. Not everyone who goes through the same treatment will come out on top. I know, because I’ve known a few who lost the battle after years of trying.

It’s essential that we take care of our health, first by being aware of what we’re putting in our mouth and second by making sure we stay away from anything that can cause our cancer cells to grow and multiply really fast. Prevention is indeed better than cure.

I believe the foods we eat play a huge part in cancer prevention. There are a lot of foods out there that have high antioxidants, we just need to educate ourselves.

This is not the first time I heard about nuts being the number 1 food that can prevent cancer and I have been eating nuts since then. I love nuts; walnuts, almonds, pecan and every kind of nuts. I also like to drink lemon water.

Other than nuts, I heard that pure tomato sauce also prevents cancer due to its very high lycopene content. What’s your thoughts on this?

Wow, what a powerful story you have. My grandmother was just diagnosed with breast cancer I will be sure to let her know about walnuts, pecans and lemon water. Thank you for sharing your powerful story. All the best!

What an impact your story had on me. Since we hear about cancer so often times in recent years, it is as if always a pain is in my chest when I hear another cancer story and the fight with it. The thought of leaving a 14 year old behind is unthinkable. I have not lost a close family member because of cancer, but we all know it can happen to any family.

However, I am so happy for you that your mom is better now, and I do hope she stays well for many more years to be with you!

There are some many amazing foods that can help prevent cancer, and thank you for sharing one of them! I am glad that this food is in my diet on a regular basis.

Wishing you and your family all the best,
Oscar

Mohamed, awesome story – so glad it ended well.
So many foods have an effect on our health and we’ve only just touched the surface of what even the most basic of foods can do for us.
Thanks for the post, it’s certainly food for thought!

Hey Dom, I really love this comment. What you said about our limited knowledge of the benefits of basic foods is truly humbling.

Hey Alice, I’ll have to do some research on the pure tomato sauce. Never heard of that but I’d have no issues eating that, in fact, I’d enjoy it a lot.

I’m imagining a cheese pizza with pure tomato sauce as I type lol

Thanks for the tip 🙂
