cancer. Studies at major universities and at the United States Academy of Science
are showing that these diets are making a dent in the number of diagnosed cancer

The number of new cancer cases diagnosed every year in the United States alone is
astounding. An average of more than 180,000 new cases of breast cancer is
diagnosed every year and experts are beginning to connect lifestyle choices, such as
diet and exercise, to this massive number.

With no 100 percent effective cure available for any form of cancer it is important to
look toward ways we can prevent cancer. And, one of the most impressive and
effective ways to prevent many forms of cancer has been found to be this diet.

Why Raw Food?

The insistence on these foods may seem a bit unusual to some people. But, once
you understand the reasoning it makes perfect sense. Scientists have found that
cooking food destroys important nutrients - nutrients that could lead to the
prevention of cancer.

Once this fact is recognized the next step is to begin eating this food. Isolated cell
studies show over and over again that these foods, not cooked foods, have amazing
health benefits, among them the ability to prevent severe illnesses such as cancer.

Which Raw Foods?

With the hundreds of fruits and vegetables available you will have to differentiate
between the ones that have cancer preventing capabilities. Here is a short listing of
some of the major cancer preventing substances and the vegetables and fruits that
provide them.

* Carotenoids. These important substances come in several forms. Beta carotene is
found in carrots and sweet potatoes, lycopene is found in tomatoes, and lutien is
found in leafy greens like kale, spinach, mustard greens, and more. Some of these
carotenoids can also be changed into a form of vitamin A. Known as pro vitamin
acarotenoids, it can be found in cantaloupe, carrots, and sweet potatoes.
* Vitamin C. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is found in many fruits and
vegetables. Almost all citrus fruits, green peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes,
melons, and even strawberries contain high amounts of vitamin C.
* Vitamin E. Vitamin E is found in broccoli, cilantro, turnip greens, avocados, spinach,
blueberries, olives, and nuts among other fresh foods.
* Folic Acid. Folic acid is important for women of childbearing age and as a cancer
preventing agent. It is found in leafy, green vegetables, lima beans, broccoli, beets,
and asparagus.
* Dietary Fiber. Known for good digestion, dietary fiber also acts to lower your risk of
cancer. You can find it in cereals, fruits, and vegetables. Apples, blackberries,
oranges, and broccoli are especially high in fiber.
* Selenium. This little known mineral is found naturally in some ground soils. Eating
this food grown in soil containing this mineral is said to prevent cancer. An example is
garlic grown in soil that has a high density of selenium.

Eating this food is the best way to get the most minerals and vitamins from your
food. Start a raw food, cancer preventative diet today by adding raw foods to your
current diet. Over time you can add more and living foods until you are eating raw
food at the recommended percentage of 75 %.
