Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?

Dr. William Li Cancer Researcher: presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor.

The crucial first (and best) step: Eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game.

When angiogenesis is out of balance, a myriad of diseases result. For example, insufficient angiogenesis — not enough blood vessels — leads to wounds that don’t heal, heart attacks, legs without circulation, death from stroke, nerve damage.

On the other end, excessive angiogenesistoo many blood vessels — drives disease, and we see this in cancer, blindness, arthritis, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease. In total, there are more than 70 major diseases affecting more than a billion people worldwide, that all look on the surface to be different from one another, but all actually share abnormal angiogenesis as their common denominator. And this realization is allowing us to re-conceptualize the way that we actually approach these diseases, by controlling angiogenesis.

Angiogenesis is a tipping point between a harmless cancer and a harmful one.
Mother Nature has laced a large number of foods and beverages and herbs with naturally-occurring inhibitors of angiogenesis.

Dr Mercola – Besides calciferous veggies, another standout plant for cancer-prevention is flax seed & Vitamin D.

The Benefits of Flax Seed Oil

FlaxSeedFlax is beneficial for preventing heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis   diabetes, breast cancer and a variety of other health conditions.

Flaxseed also contains a group of chemicals called lignans that may play a role in the prevention of cancer. Lignans are an estrogen-like chemicals and also act as antioxidants.

Helps in the prevention of coronary Heart disease in many ways:

  • Research suggests that plant omega-3s help the cardiovascular system through several different mechanisms, including anti-inflammatory action and normalizing the heartbeat.
  • significant blood pressure-lowering effects of flaxseed.
  • omega-3s help prevent hardening of the arteries and keep plaque from being deposited in the arteries partly by keeping white blood cells from sticking to the blood vessels’ inner linings.
  • Eating flaxseed daily may also help your cholesterol levels. The level of LDL or “bad” cholesterol in the bloodstream has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
