American Institute for Cancer Research List Cancer-Fighting Foods

Dear Friend,

Do you need more motivation to consume a healthy diet? According to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), excess body weight is a cause of more than 130,000 new cases of cancer in the United States each year.

Consuming nutritious plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans, provides a double-whammy against cancer. Fewer calories mean no weight gain, while the vitamins and minerals are strong tools against developing cancer.

What's on Your Grocery List?

Fortunately, there's a wide variety of delicious foods to choose from. Here are some of the products that rank high on AICR's list.

• Dark green leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach and romaine lettuce contain carotenoids that attack free radicals, which are unstable molecules that cause cell and tissue damage.

• Tomatoes get their red color from an antioxidant called lycopene. They're also rich in fiber, which protects against colorectal cancer.

• Coffee has gained a bad reputation with some, but it's actually full of antioxidants that may become more potent during the roasting process.

• Kidneys, black beans and other legumes are a good source of fiber and protein. They also contain a resistant starch used by "good" bacteria in the colon to manufacture protective short-chain fatty acids.

• Blueberries are considered one of the "superfoods" that have some of the highest antioxidant content.

Cancer Experts Find New Dietary Guidelines Lacking

The revised version, issued recently, has gained more influential critics who believe the guidelines don't go far enough to discourage consumption of foods linked to cancer. Katie McMahon of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network is one of the experts questioning the new guidelines, particularly the failure to recommend limiting red meats.

Cancer Cells Show Sensitivity to Metabolic Stress

Research has shown that a tumor is usually not made up of identical cells. When someone goes through chemotherapy the cells frequently change. This chromosomal instability causes cancer cells to stress out. When they are stressed, it could lead to metabolic disruption. Experiments are currently being conducted that will show how much stress unstable cells can tolerate. Dr. Gregory is hoping this study will be the jumping-off point to developing treatments that have no side effects.
