A diagnosis of a cancer can be heart breaking, not only for the one diagnosed with it, but also the people around them.

Treating cancer once it is talked about in medical circles, however, what does not come our way to often is how we can prevent this dreaded disease. According to various studies, nutrition plays a very important role in reducing the risk of contracting cancer.

What’s a weight that is healthy and comfortable?
Most of us are not aware of the fact that the fat in our bodies have their own cellular activity and blood supply and are not inert.

These cells are very active, they are responsible for the production of inflammatory factors, they regulate our appetite and also generate the production of hormones.

Their metabolic activity can affect how body weight affects the contraction of cancer. Intra abdominal fat, the fat that is concentrated in our mid section, one which surrounds as well as permeates our organs, is important to our health. It could be the cause of chronic disease such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It also accelerates the growth of cancer cells.

Do not attempt to lose weight when you have been diagnosed with cancer, ideally the weight you are most comfortable weight and one that is healthy should be aimed for once the cancer has been cleared.

Eat Organic
Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other chemicals that have been used during the process of farm production have carcinogenic properties. Therefore, it’s simple, if you wish to prevent cancer, simply keep these away from your diet by choosing to eat organic foods. This variety of food is known to be nutrient rich as well. When our bodies are well nourished and have a good supply of antioxidants, they can fight onslaught of caner in an easier manner.

Eat anti-inflammatory and alkalizing foods
Inflammation is as bad as bad can get. It is important to reduce inflammation if we wish to reduce our risk of cancer and keep our body functioning well. Plant based foods are known to have an alkalizing effect within the body. Meat, sugar and dairy products on the other hand have an effect that is acidifying.

Work towards including foods that are alkalizing as apposed to acidifying to keep cancer at bay.
