Healthy Foods That Lowers Cancer Spread.


Cinnamon is well-known for its health benefits, including its ability to reduce blood sugar and ease inflammation.

In addition, some test-tube and animal studies have found that cinnamon may help block the spread of cancer cells.

We found found that cinnamon extract was able to decrease the spread of cancer cells and induce their death

Also cinnamon essential oil suppressed the growth of head and neck cancer cells, and also significantly reduced tumor size. Also showed that cinnamon extract induced cell death in tumor cells, and also decreased how much tumors grew and spread.

Including 1/2–1 teaspoon (2–4 grams) of cinnamon in your diet per day may be beneficial in cancer prevention, and may come with other as well, such as reduced blood sugar and decreased inflammation.

However, more studies are needed to understand how cinnamon may affect cancer development in humans.

2.Olive Oil

Olive oil is loaded with healthy benefits it’s no wonder it’s one of the staples of the Mediterranean diet.

Several studies have even found that a higher intake of olive oil may help protect against cancer.

People who consumed the greatest amount of olive oil had a lower risk of developing breast cancer and cancer of the digestive system than those with the lowest intake.

Another study looked at the cancer rates in 28 countries around the world and found that areas with a higher intake of olive oil had decreased rates of colorectal cancer.

Swapping out other oils in your diet for olive oil is a simple way to take advantage of its health benefits. You can drizzle it over salads and cooked vegetables, or try using it in your marinades for meat, fish or poultry.

Though these studies show that there may be association between olive oil intake and cancer, there are likely other factors involved as well. More studies are needed to look at the direct effects of olive oil on cancer in people.


Turmeric is a spice well-known for its healthy promoting properties . Cur-cumin, its active ingredient, is a chemical with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and even anticancer effects.

Also, cur-cumin was also found to decrease the spread of colon cancer cells by targeting a specific enzyme related to cancer growth.

Another test-tube study showed that cur-cumin helped kill off head and neck cancer cell.

Cur-cumin has also been shown to be effective in slowing the growth of lung, breast and prostate cancer cells.

Aim for at least 1/2–3 teaspoons (1–3 grams) of ground turmeric per day. Use it as a ground spice to add flavor to foods, and pair it with black pepper to help boost its absorption.

5.Citrus Fruits

Eating citrus fruit such as lemons, limes, grapefruits and oranges has been associated with a lower risk of cancer in some studies.

Participants who ate a higher amount of citrus fruits had a lower risk of developing cancers of the digestive and upper respiratory tracts.

Also a greater intake of citrus fruits was linked to a reduced risk of pancreatic cancer.

We that a high intake, or at least three servings per week, of citrus fruit reduced the risk of stomach cancer by 28% .

We found that including a few servings of citrus fruits in your diet each week may lower your risk of developing certain types of cancer.


The active component in garlic is allicin, a compound that has been shown to kill off cancer cells in multiple test-tube studies.

We also found an association between garlic intake and a lower risk of certain types of cancer. We found that those who ate lots of Allium vegetables, such as garlic, onions, leeks and shallots, had a lower risk of stomach cancer than those who rarely consumed them.

Higher intake of garlic was associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Participants who ate lots of garlic, as well as fruit, deep yellow vegetables, dark green vegetables and onions, were less likely to develop colorectal tumors. However, this study did not isolate the effects of garlic .

However, despite the promising results showing an association between garlic and a reduced risk of cancer, more studies are needed to examine whether other factors play a role.

6.Fatty Fish

Some research suggests that including a few servings of fish in your diet each week may reduce your risk of cancer. Also higher intake of fish was associated with a lower risk of digestive tract cancer.

Eating more fish decreased the risk of developing colorectal cancer, while red and processed meats actually increased the risk .

In particular, fatty fish like salmon, mackerel and anchovies contain important nutrients such as vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids that have been linked to a lower risk of cancer.

For example, having adequate levels of vitamin D is believed to protect against and reduce the risk of cancer.

In addition, omega-3 fatty acids are thought to block the development of the disease.

Aim for two servings of fatty fish per week to get a hearty dose of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, and to maximize the potential health benefits of these nutrients. You need to determine how fatty fish consumption may directly influence the risk of cancer in humans.


We found that eating more carrots is linked to a decreased risk of certain types of cancer.

For example, an analysis looked at the results of five studies and concluded that eating carrots may reduce the risk of stomach cancer by up to 26% .

Higher intake of carrots was associated with 18% lower odds of developing prostate cancer.

Participants with and without lung cancer. It found that current smokers who did not eat carrots were three times as likely to develop lung cancer, compared to those who ate carrots more than once per week.

Try incorporating carrots into your diet as a healthy snack or delicious side dish just a few times per week to increase your intake and potentially reduce your risk of cancer.

Still, an association between carrot consumption and cancer, but don’t account for other factors that may play a role.
