"Best Diet Ever," Top 5 Foods to Cut Cancer Risk

by: cancercompass

The San Francisco Chronicle published an interesting article Monday regarding the top five foods to help decrease one's risk of developing cancer.

The research surrounding these foods was developed by Dr. John Farquhar who founded Stanford University's Prevention Research Center. He also teaches a course at the university titled "The Best Diet Ever," which dives deeper into why these foods are beneficial.

"There's still uncertainty about how important nutrition is in cancer prevention," Farquhar told the publication, "but I've found that if you deal with these specific foods, there's evidence that they all have cancer-fighting nutrients. As opposed to genetics, nutrition is something that people can control."

The Top 5 Foods Are:

  • Berries
  • Broccoli
  • Onions - onions, garlic, leeks or shallots.
  • Soy - tofu, soy nuts, soy milk or edamame.
  • Tomatoes
