Cancer Fighting Foods – Spinach

You may not realize it, but spinach is one of the cancer fighting foods you should eat regularly to help prevent this disease.

In the past, people might have disliked spinach so much that a cartoon character was actually created to boost its appeal to children.

You may recall the popular cartoon, Popeye the Sailor Man. In each episode, he would get beat up trying to defend Olive Oil. Popeye would eat a can of spinach and as soon as it was digested, he would grow muscles and be unstoppable against his enemies.

In truth, spinach really is a great food. Some of its powerful ingredients include: vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, B vitamins, calcium, iron and many more natural minerals and nutrients.

Spinach has been shown to help protect the eyes from age-related degeneration. It, as well as other green vegetables, is high in potassium and low in sodium. Along with the mixture of plant-derived omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and other minerals, spinach is great for lowering your blood pressure.
