They may not be superhero’s like Batman but they fight the bad guys just the same – Superhero foods that do battle with the evil “Cancer”. Foods that are high in antioxidants and other phytonutrients take on cancer cells and either put them in prison (preventing them from spreading) or punch them into submission and prevent them from forming at all. Who are these masked food avengers?
#1. Captain Tomato: Can be recognized by his red costume and he is the hero to many a male as his powerful “Lycopene” antioxidant tends to concentrate in the prostrate, helping to thwart cancer that may want to do “bad” there. Captain Tomato is a great ally to Captain Winkey!!
#2. Wonder Garlic: This superhero food may not smell good but his antioxidants do battle with many tumors – inhibiting their growth in places like the colon, breast and esophagus.
#3. The Grape Twins: Both the red and purple grapes contain resveratrol, which can stop cancer cells in its tracks – Look out breast and stomach – here comes a hero that will prevent tumors.
#4. Mr. Green Bean: Simply, one of the best Superhero foods for cancer fighting. Many a tumor quivers at the sight of Mr. Green Bean – which has been known to prevent the growth and slow the division of cancer cells.
These are just a few of the Superhero foods that make up the “Vegetable league of Foods” – Their mission is to do battle with the evil Cancer and its minions of Tumors. Help them in their goal and have a minimum of two cups at lunch and dinner and let them do battle for you.
