These phytochemicals are in freshly grown plant food but are destroyed or removed by modern processing.

The following food items have been found beneficial to a person with cancer:
  1. Red grapes: which contain resperatrol, also found in red wine.

  2. Turmeric: a member of the ginger family. Its active ingredients are curcumin and possesses numerous anti cancer properties. This is the yellow in curry powder.

  3. Garlic: contains allium and several studies has shown it to be an anti cancer agent.

As always, i'm not a doctor and everyone is responsible for their own actions. This is just a compilation of foods which could be preventing cancer and stopping the money-intensive treatments in chemo therapies and so on.
For sure, most of the doctors don't want to tell you this as they make a living from sick clients and not from healthy ones.

But it's always better to prevent disease yourself than taking your time to wait at the doctor for giving you some medicines which have sometimes more side effects than doing much good to your body.
