Top 10 natural cancer killers

A recent study found that the adoption of only one of five healthy lifestyle habits, such as not smoking and drinking moderately, can lower the cancer risk in males by 14 per cent.

The results of a long-term survey by the National Cancer Center of Japan found that the more healthy habits the subjects had, the lower their risk of cancer.

On average, the adoption of one healthy habit would reduce cancer risks by 14 per cent for males and by 9 per cent for females, the center said.

However, other than healthy habits, it is known that certain foods have excellent anti-cancer properties.

These cancer-fighting foods contain antioxidants and phytonutrients - nutrients with potent disease fighting power that supresses the development of cancer cells and boost your immune system.

And the fact that these are all easily available foods means that you can fight cancer with ever meal, snack and beverage you take, three times a day, everyday.

Here's a list of the top 10 cancer fighting foods you should watch out for, compiled by Dr Geo Espinosa, N.D., L.Ac, CNS, the Director of the Integrative Urology Center at New York University Langone Medical Center.
