We are sharing some super simple cancer fighting foods, to empower and inspire you to add into your diet.

Garlic – 1-2 cloves per day can help to block the formation of cancer-causing substances and enhance DNA repair.

Broccoli – the cruciferous family of vegetables, including Brussel sprouts and cauliflower can neutralise and help to eliminate cancer-causing compounds.

Tomato – rich in the antioxidant lycopene, which gives tomatoes their rich red colour may help to slow cancer growth, particularly prostate cancer.

Legumes & lentils – the anti-cancer action of legumes and lentils comes from their rich source of fibre and antioxidants.

Wholegrains – from brown rice to wholegrain bread, wholegrains contain a variety of cancer-fighting compounds including fibre and phytochemicals.
