Cancer Killers: Mint & More!

SAN DIEGO (Ivanhoe Newswire) --Ok women it’s time to move past the chip aisle, skip the diet frozen meals and take a stroll through the produce section.  We’ve heard it before, but women should be eating three servings of fruits and four servings of vegetables every single day. We are breaking down the top foods that pack the healthiest punch!

There are 2,000 different fruits—even more veggies—so when it comes to all of these choices breast cancer survivor Mary McCue only chooses the best of the best.

 “Ever since I had breast cancer, now every food item I eat, I’m looking for maximum benefit,” Mary McCue, a breast cancer survivor told Ivanhoe.

“The real foods, the gorgeous foods that don’t have a lot of stickers and a lot packaging. They are just what they are. They provide us with everything we need to survive and thrive,” Rebecca Katz, Author of Cancer-Fighting Kitchen told Ivanhoe.

Rebecca Katz used her training as a chef to help her father through throat cancer—now she uses food to help heal others
“The shiitake and the maitakes are the ones that are real immune boosting, Katz said. 

Tomatoes are full of lycopene and help to ward off breast and cervical cancer. Kale contains Vitamin C, calcium and Vitamin K—research shows women who eat diets rich in K are at a lower risk of osteoporosis and it only has 36 calories per cooked cup. Rounding out Rebecca’s top choices—sweet potatoes, squash, dark berries, beats and carrots, but her number one cancer killing pick? 

 “Mint, this is one of the biggest cancer fighting foods. I couldn’t believe it when I found out about this. It has a phytochemical that is really good at what I call turning the master cancer switch cell off,” Katz added.

Just one small choice that can make a big difference in your health.

“We make a really healthy connection to food, we make a really healthy connection to life,” Katz concluded. 

Now you know what to eat, how much you eat is just as important.  One serving size of fruit equals a half of grapefruit or 12 grapes.  As for veggies, one serving size is one medium potato or eight carrot sticks.
