Researchers were conducting studies on different herbs for possible anticancer properties and have found promising herbs. Maybe some of them you are now using as basic ingredients on your food preparation.
Linda B. White, M.D., a visiting assistant professor in the Integrative Therapies Program at Metropolitan State College of Denver, shares some known anticancer herbs in her post at MotherEarthLiving. The anticancer herbs she mentioned that you can include in your daily regime to stay healthy and reduce the risk of cancer are:
*Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) and stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) – If you have access to fresh, pesticide-free leaves, you can steam or sauté them. You can also drink infusions of the dried or fresh leaves.
*Green tea – rich in a polyphenol called epigallocatechin gallate. In lab research, it inhibits cancer cell formation, proliferation, invasiveness, and metastasis and provokes cancer cell death.
*Turmeric (Curcuma longa) and its botanical cousin ginger (Zingiber officinale) – are anticancer herbs that contain the potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticancer polyphenols curcumin and gingerol, respectively.
*Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) – packs cancer-protective effects. It contains an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory flavonoid complex called silymarin.
*Garlic (Allium sativum) – increases enzymes that detoxify carcinogens, inhibits proliferation of cancer cells, induces cancer cell death and boosts immunity
