Here is our final post on Anti-Cancer Rules. I am fully aware that we could go on for hundreds of posts containing solid research as well as personal claims to combating the dreaded condition of cancer. That is why I invite you to not let the conversation end here. Please enlighten us on how you view cancer and how you take a stand against its unwelcome presence. Now, let's take a look at some of the "Top Anti-Cancer Foods". This list is based on the resources I've added at the end of this post.
* This list is certainly not all inclusive. New research is released and sciences' findings evolve. * Some of these sources may need to be consumed in supplement form. * Consult with your health care provider before beginning any new health regimen.
Top Anti-Cancer Foods
* Berries, especially blueberries and Goji berries
* Black pepper (ground)
* Broccoli sprouts

* Flax seed
* Fish: sardines, mackerel, cod, krill, & wild salmon

A note about the ORAC Scale:
The ORAC Scale stands for: Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It basically translates the ORAC value of the capacity of antioxidants that a certain substance (mainly foods) contains. The foods listed above are all on this scale, measuring in average between 3,000 and 5,000 ORAC units. This method was developed by scientists of the National Institute of Health and Aging (NIH).
