This is the fourth in a series of food-for-healing resource articles I began writing in 2013 that also include:
15 Articles Attesting to Chocolate’s Astounding Health Benefits
12 Articles that Elaborate on the Myriad Health Benefits of Turmeric
The Many, Many Health Benefits of Coconut Oil
In this article, I provide a number of powerful nutritional resources—most of the everyday variety—said to be able to help one avoid and even treat various kinds of cancer.
I’m personally in no position to make medical claims about specific foods impacting the Big C.
But as you’ll see from the articles below, a lot of people with a lot of fancy letters after their names have made their own claims—based on hard scientific evidence and close clinical observation—about the ability of many foods to prevent and cure cancer.
One claim I will make: don’t expect the medical-pharmaceutical mafia to miraculously produce the Cure for Cancer in our lifetime.
They’re not running for the cure; they’re running away from it as fast as possible because there’s an enormous amount of profit in suffering and death, as opposed to healing and life.
Fortunately, it appears the cure was right here all along—in our gardens and kitchens, of all places.
So educate yourself and eat up!
HONEY: A POWERFUL ANTI-CANCER AGENT. Honey is a superlative healing food. We know it has over 69 health benefits, as confirmed by the biomedical literature. But did you know it could be of profound benefit in diseases as life threatening and seemingly incurable as cancer?
CANNABIS EXTRACT (OIL) FIGHTS “INCURABLE FORM” OF LEUKEMIA. A remarkable case report documents a 14-year old girl who, after 34 months of chemo, radiation and bone marrow transplant treatments, was given up for dead. Her family discovered research on cannabis extract, and before she died of a secondary complication of her original treatment, used it successfully to put her leukemia into remission.
THIS LITTLE KNOWN CHINESE HERB KILLS 12K CANCER CELLS FOR EVERY HEALTHY CELL. A little known Chinese herb might be eligible for the growing list of cancer killers via alternative methods of treatment.

THE MISSING LINK: HOW TO BEAT CANCER WITH GARLIC. If you choose to take garlic for healing, be sure to crush it and let it sit for at least 15 minutes. This is the TIME NEEDED to release the enzyme—allinase—that produces the anti-cancer compounds.
NARINGIN IN GRAPEFRUIT REDUCES CERVICAL & BREAST CANCER TUMORS BY UP TO 75%. Studies show how people suffering from cancerous tumors due to malnutrition and cachexia (high levels of inflammatory cytokines in their cells which causes weakening or severe illness) responded exceptionally well to treatment with naringin, a compound found in grapefruit.
GARLIC PROVEN TO KILL BRAIN CANCER CELLS, PREVENT FUTURE GROWTH. A small group of researchers have found something that’s useful for anyone willing to properly consume lots of garlic. They discovered that certain organo-sulfur compounds in garlic can in fact kill brain cancer cells without disturbing healthy cells.
LEMON: THE QUINTESSENTIAL CANCER DESTROYER & HEALTH TONIC. Packed with nutrients, this upbeat fruit is a cost-effective way to trim down, detoxify and boost vitality. Lemons also conceal a little known health secret. By enjoying the entire fruit (juice, rind, pith and seeds), we can strongly discourage cancer, bone loss, hypertension and more.
AMAZING MEDICINAL PLANT KILLS MALIGNANT TUMORS & DESTROYS BREAST CANCER CELLS. Brucea javanica is one of those plants on which scientific investigations have provided enough evidence to prove that it has an impressive efficacy for the treatment of cervical, bladder and pancreatic cancers. Its selective toxicity has also been found to kill 70% of breast cancer cells.
PHYTONUTRIENTS IN CRANBERRIES BLOCK CANCER CELLS. Cranberries are unusually rich in the antioxidant compounds, proanthocyanins that are well known for their ability to prevent urinary tract infections. Recently, scientists discovered that this same compound, and other bioactive nutrients in cranberries, can help to block cancer cells from growing out of control.
HOW TOMATOES HELP PREVENT CANCER. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of cancer, and numerous studies have suggested that tomatoes in particular have a strong cancer-preventing effect.
STUDIES SHOW REISHI MUSHROOMS FIGHT CANCER & DIABETES. Long-term consumption of reishi mushrooms—which are characterized by their red, kidney-shaped cap and their tough, “woody” texture—has been linked to reduced blood pressure, improved nerve function, enhanced stamina, weight loss and much more.
OXFORD SCIENTISTS: CONJUGATED LINOLEIC ACIDS KILL CANCER CELLS. If you want to reduce your chance of multiple cancers, lose weight, regulate metabolism and more, you can start eating CLAs by way of cheese, yogurt and other organic dairy products. They just might save your life.
FRANKINCENSE SUPERIOR TO CHEMOTHERAPY IN KILLING LATE-STAGE OVARIAN CANCER CELLS. Like the Magi, carrying myrrh, frankincense, and gold, researchers from the University of Leicester have, for the first time, demonstrated the potential of treating ovarian cancer using the Christmas gift frankincense.
WHAT COMMON FOODS CAN KILL MULTI-DRUG RESISTANT CANCERS? Just as it’s widely known that certain foods—such as fructose and processed meatscontribute to cancer, other foods can help prevent it and still others may actually kill cancerous cells, including those that are resistant to drug treatment.
RESEARCH SHOWS CURCUMIN SUPPRESSES CANCER CELL INVASION & METASTASIS. At the School of Medicine in National Yang-Ming University, in Taipei, Taiwan, researchers studied the active component of turmeric, curcumin, for its anti-tumor capabilities. In the thorough study, curcumin was found to activate tumor-suppressing proteins which are responsible for stopping cancer cell invasion and the further spread of cancer, or metastasis.
THREE EDIBLE MUSHROOMS WITH PROVEN CANCER-FIGHTING PROPERTIES. Not all mushrooms are created equal. Some are more efficient at tackling cancer than others. Below is a list of three mushrooms which, according to ongoing research, are unusually effective at inhibiting cancerous growths.
NIGELLA SATIVA IS CANCER’S WORST NIGHTMARE. Much to the dismay of many pharmaceutical giants and doctors who reap big rebate checks from recommending chemotherapy treatments, Nigella sativa, aka black oil, has been proven over and over again to successfully treat cancer without the use of conventional treatments.
SEA CUCUMBER FOUND TO KILL 95% OF CANCER CELLS, SHRINK TUMORS. Sea cucumber has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years, but it is relatively obscure in the US. This may be changing, however, as evidence mounts that sea cucumber extracts can kill cancer cells while stimulating the immune system.
BETTER THAN CHEMO: GINGER ROOT KILLS OVARIAN & PROSTATE CANCER CELLS. Thanks to research from the University of Michigan and nearly three centuries of medicinal use, we can now confidently utilize ginger root not only to kill ovarian but also prostate cancer cells—with zero toxicity.
CANNABIS CAN TREAT PROSTATE CANCER. A new study using a compound meant to mimic the medicinal effects of cannabinoids has found that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors—something which cannabis does naturally—can prevent and treat hormone-sensitive prostate cancer. Remind me again why marijuana is illegal?
