The Mediterranean diet includes high intake of vegetables, fruit, fish, calcium-rich foods, and fiber. Consume plenty of cancer-fighting foods with antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. This means avoiding packaged and processed foods, and focusing on only those that do not contain antibiotics, chemicals, or toxins.
Inflammation is the underlying issue that dictates cancerous tumor initiation, progression, and growth.
Focus on a plant-based diet with:
Plenty of fruits/veggies
High fiber (beans/legumes, seeds, whole grains)
(Plant) Protein with every meal
Low/moderate fat diet
Limit processed and refined grains/flours/sugars
Drink fluids and green tea
Consume lots of vitamin C, carotenoids, retinol, α-tocopherol, and fiber. Research indicates that dietary sources of beta-carotene are much more protective than supplemental sources against cancer risk.
