The dreaded 'C' word can attack in many ways, but did you know that your body too, has its ways to prevent and fight cancer? Follow these five simple dietary changes to build up immunity, resistance, and longevity.  

Wholesome grains 

By choosing whole grain and bran over white flour, you'll be making a small change with a big benefit.The high fiber content will cleanse the system and keep your insides fighting fit.

Fit and fruity 

A bowlful of fruits, like apples and pears with their skin on, add to your fiber intake. Most fruits contain phytochemicals and antioxidants that are cell-friendly.

Blessed broccoli 

Broccoli is a particularly heroic one, full of protective enzymes. Not only does it detoxify against dangerous elements, it also fights bad bacteria. Just don't overcook and kill the nutrients!

Beat the meat 

Regular intake of red meat is an absolute no-no. They're full of fat and very heavy to digest. White meats like chicken and turkey are the smarter choices. Better still, go fish! 

Oils to go with 

The lower the fat content the better, so go for olive or canola oil rather than normal vegetable or sunflower oil. Limit deep fried food or cut it out completely if you can.       

An overall healthy diet will keep you a few steps ahead of cancer. Eating right will reduce the risk of many other diseases and ailments too. It's worth developing a taste for the right foods; they could save your life.
