Many people are falling prey to cancer due to increased stress and strain, and unhealthy eating habits, according to a recent study by the National Academy of Naturopathy.

Many dietary remedies for human ailments have been known for centuries, and an increasing number of nutritional scientists have been conducting studies that validate these traditional remedies. Additionally, naturopaths around the world are recommending organic food for detoxification of cancer cells.

Fresh foods are cancer fighting because they contain live enzymes that act as a catalyst for detoxification. Cabbage increases the metabolism of estrogen and is useful in fighting colon cancer, while carrot juice acts as an antidote to lung cancer. Beet juice has cancer-fighting properties, as it is rich in sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulphur, chlorine, iodine, iron, copper, vitamins B-1, B-2, B-6 and niacin.

Citrus juices like lemon, orange and grapefruit are used as anti-cancer compounds; studies also show that spinach, lettuce and broccoli juice act as antioxidants. Wheat bran decreases estrogen in the blood, wheat grass juice repairs damaged cells in leukemia patients. Spirulina, a species of blue-green algae used in juices to boost nutritional value, increases natural cancer-fighting substances in the body. Spirulina is 60 percent all-vegetable protein, rich in beta carotene, iron, vitamin B-12 and GLA, a rare essential fatty acid. Cancer patients also are advised to eat fiber-rich foods like bran, oats, barley, legumes, carrots, beets, turnips, leafy vegetables and cabbage.

All these vegetables and fruit juices inhibit the growth of cancer. On a daily basis, 100 to 150 grams of fruits, 100 grams of raw, leafy vegetables, 1 fruit or 175 ml of fruit or vegetable juice is an ideal nutritional meal.
