Broccoli contains some extraordinary compounds that have been shown to trigger apoptosis in cancerous cells, eliminate carcinogenic toxins, help prevent the development of benign tumors into malignant tumors,fight DNA damage, and help prevent the spread of cancer
from one organ to another. The cancer-fighting potential of raw broccoli—which this recipe calls for—appears to be particularly high: according to one study, cooking may destroy as much as 90% of sulforaphane—the key anti-cancer substance in broccoli. Besides broccoli, this salad boasts a number of other anti-cancer foods, including cranberries (rich in ellagic acid), sunflower seeds (packed with antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium), and apples and red onions (excellent dietary sources of quercetin).

While very low in calories, arugula delivers a hearty helping of health boosting phytochemicals. It is a particularly good source of glucosinolates which are converted into isothiocyanates when the plant is chewed.

This recipe pairs beets with carrots to create a potent weapon for fighting stomach cancer. Several studies have found betacyanin, a phytochemical responsible for beets' intense purple color, to be highly effective at preventing cancer while carrots contain falcarinol—a compound that has been shown to inhibit the development of cancer. The anti-cancer compounds in beets and carrots are heat-sensitive and therefore it is best to eat these powerful root vegetables raw like in this salad. See the Recipe

A laboratory test has now confirmed what grandmas have known for years: chicken soup is good for you. The researchers found that chicken soup and its main ingredients help inhibit the migration of neutrophils—white blood cells that swallow up bacteria and viruses responsible for infectious diseases. Your neutrophil count lies somewhere between 3,000 and 6,000 neutrophils per milliliter of blood, but chemotherapy and some radiotherapy treatments can lower your neutrophil count, making you more prone to getting infections. See the Recipe
This scrumptious chicken soup features broccoli, a great anti-cancer vegetable that helps eliminate carcinogenic toxins, induce apoptosis in stomach cancer cells, fight DNA damage, and prevent the development of benign tumors into malignant ones. But the anti-cancer properties of this soup do not end there: also the organic celery in this soup adds to its cancer-thwarting properties. Celery is known to contain at least eight families of cancer-combating compounds
