Cancer Fighting Foods – Foods High in Fiber

A number of studies have revealed that eating foods high in fiber can decrease a person’s risk of developing cancer.

If you think about it, it actually makes sense because fiber helps to move potential cancer causing substances (also called carcinogens)  out of our body.

Obviously, the less we are exposed to cancer causing substances, the less our chances are of developing the disease.

This is especially true with cancer of the colon.  Some foods high in fiber include: wheat bran, kidney, garbanzo, black and  navy beans, whole wheat, whole grains, legumes, whole grain bread, prunes, lentils, lima beans, avocados, broccoli, millet, spinach, quinoa, Swiss chard, green peas and dark green leafy vegetables.

Be careful of wheat products, though, and those with gluten since a very high percentage of the population is allergic to them and doesn’t even know it.
