Studies to date have failed to make a link between cancer cure and a nutritional program filled with fruits and vegetables. Data from studies that follow large groups of initially healthy individuals for years have not shown that a nutritional regimen rich in fruits and vegetables prevents cancer in general.
Data from the Nurses’ Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-up Study support this finding. Over a 14-year period, men and women with the highest intake of fruits and vegetables (8+ servings a day) were just as likely to have developed cancer as those who ate the fewest daily servings (under 1.5).
However that data doesn’t take into account the rest of the nutritional program that those people had during the study. Eating all the fruits and vegetables in the world in conjunction with deep fry foods, chemically processed foods, additives, and preservatives, and loaded with sugar it’s not going to keep anybody safe from cancer or any other disease.
Some of this research and data don’t take into account the contaminants in our foods, the bad water, the overconsumption of sugar, the incorrect cooking practices, the drinking and drug habits of those people to be able to come out with a more accurate conclusion.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, recently completed an intensive review of the best research on fruits, vegetables, and cancer. Here’s what this 387-page research concludes about studies in humans:
“There is limited evidence for a cancer-preventive effect of consumption of fruit and of vegetables for cancers of the mouth and pharynx, esophagus, stomach, colon-rectum, larynx, lung, ovary (vegetables only), bladder (fruit only), and kidney. There is inadequate evidence for a cancer-preventive effect of consumption of fruit and of vegetables for all other sites.”
“However, considering all evidence from human epidemiological, animal, and other types of studies, it appears that eating more fruit ‘probably lowers the risk of cancers of the esophagus, stomach and lung’ and ‘possibly reduces the risk of cancers of the mouth, pharynx, colon-rectum, larynx, kidney, and urinary bladder.’ Eating more vegetables ‘probably lowers the risk of cancers of the esophagus and colon-rectum’ and ‘possibly reduces the risk of cancers of the mouth, pharynx, stomach, larynx, lung, ovary and kidney.”
When eating out, avoid deep-fried foods and wheat at all costs. When you avoid wheat you stay away from partially hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup, another pair of deadly ingredients.
