Top 7 Anti-Cancer Foods

Hi Friend,

My Supplement contains over 26 different nutrients that can help support your pet’s immune system. It’s now available as a special 50% OFF trial.

Antioxidants, Phytochemicals, and Cancer

A variety of chemicals from plants called phytochemicals protect cells from damage by harmful compounds in food and in the environment. Some studies have suggested that 30-50% of human cancers could be prevented with diet.

No question, incorporating some of these foods into our pets diet ( and our own), makes sense to me.

Here are the top 7 Anti-Cancer Foods


Broccoli and other related vegetables such as kale, and cauliflower have plant chemicals called glucosinolates- the most protective of these enzymes is sulforaphane.

Sulforaphane might reduce cancer risk, acting as a detoxifier and protecting against intestinal cancers.

Tomatoes and Lycopene

That red in the tomato comes from a phytochemical called lycopene- this is a proven powerful antioxidant. Studies suggest that a lycopene-rich diet is connected to a reduced risk of prostate cancer. 

Researchers think that lycopene protects cells from damage that could lead to cancer by boosting the immune system. It’s also found in watermelon, pink grapefruit and red peppers.


Garlic has a host of health claims, primarily coming from the sulfur compounds causing that may stop cancer-causing substances from forming in your body, speed DNA repair, and kill cancer cells.
The primary benefit comes from the cloves that are peeled, chopped, and then given 15 minutes before being cooked.
There are concerns about garlic and anemia in pets, but this is not well documented, and now many commercial dog diets contain garlic.

Healthy berries:

Strawberries, blueberries and raspberries are rich in antioxidants. They contain compounds such as ellagic acid, which seems to have anticancer properties.

They also contain flavonoids which has known anti-carcinogen properties. Blueberries filled with anthocyanins, which reduce inflammation and are a very powerful antioxidant.


Carrots contain beta-carotene, an antioxidant that may protect cell membranes from toxin damage and slow the growth of cancer cells.

Carrots contain vitamins and other phytochemicals that may protect against cancers of the mouth, esophagus, and stomach.

Cooked carrots supply more antioxidants than raw, according to a report in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry.

Popeye’s Secret…Spinach

Lutein is an antioxidant, is good for eye health, and it may also help in protecting against cancer.

Spinach is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids – antioxidants that that remove free radicals from your body before they cause damage.

They are in spinach and other dark green leafy vegetables.

Flax seed and Flax Oil

The oil extracted from flaxseeds is said to lower cholesterol levels, boost the immune system, and prevent cancer. Flaxseed oil is high in alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that is thought to have beneficial effects against cancer when consumed. Omega-3 fatty acids can also be found fish and fish oils, as well as in some other plant oils.

Flaxseed is a rich source of lignans, compounds that can act as anti-estrogens or as weak estrogens. Lignans may play a role in preventing estrogen-dependent cancers, such as breast cancer and other types of cancer. Lignans may also function as antioxidants.
