Anti-cancer diet



If it were enough to monitor the contents of his plate to keep the disease at bay, it would be known. However, there is a link between our eating behaviours and cancer. Explanations.

Garlic with incomparable virtues, corossol juice "ten thousand times more potent than chemotherapy" broccoli and green tea exceptional sources of anti-cancer molecules... On the Internet and in many books, promises related to the protective virtues of certain foods are multiplying. So much so that we feel ready to change our gourmet habits and adopt, without raising an eyebrow, the menu soup with cabbage and green tea! Before you revolutionize everything in your kitchen, it is important to understand that while these products have real effects, they do not constitute invincible shields against a pathology that specialists define as multifactorial. And when cancer cells multiply, they cannot pretend to eliminate them as if by miracle. Moreover, since the 2011 report of the Anses (National Agency for Health Security) which demystified diet and anti-cancer diets, the discourse of the health authorities has not changed. Prevention requires a varied and balanced diet. Of course, some plants or spices (such as green tea, turmeric) have shown in vitro a beneficial effect on an isolated cancer cell, but this does not support the claim that they can have a convincing effect on an organism as a whole and yet less so in humans. Moreover, our diet alone would not be sufficient to provide us with the doses that this research is about, so we would have to use dietary supplements. That's why it's important not to gobble up everything with your eyes closed, and especially not these foods a little quickly labeled 'therapeutic'.
 
Fruits and vegetables don't count for butter

Sugars and cold cuts, too good to be honest!

If chewing green doesn't hurt us, the same cannot be said of certain animal proteins. Consumption of red meats and deli meats is part of the risk factors for colon and rectal cancer. Recent meta-analyses confirm a "convincing" level of evidence. In addition to regular physical activity (thirty to forty minutes of walking per day), experts recommend limiting red meat intakes to less than 500 g per week (a steak weighs 100 to 150 g), alternating beef, veal, lamb... with poultry, fish, eggs and legumes, and to limit the consumption of deli meats as much as possible. The same applies to added sugar, which should be reduced in doses (see box).

Prepared meals and alcohol, to leave in the closet

There is no question of cutting your appetite, but according to experts, the pleasure of certain substances cannot make us forget their harmful effects on our health. Alcohol, first, identified as the second leading cause of cancer-preventable death, after tobacco. The new recommendations cap his consumption at two drinks a day and ten drinks a week with forty-eight hours of abstinence. Salt and salty foods, on the other hand, are implicated in the increased risk of stomach cancer. Health authorities, through the National Health Nutrition Programme (PNNS), recommend that no more than 5 g per day be absorbed for an adult, the equivalent of 2.4 g of sodium.

Moreover, having only industrial ready meals, fatty or sugary products, which are made to be overweight and obese, which expose you to cancers of the esophagus, pancreas, or breast after menopause. Finally, distrust of certain dietary supplements: the results of new meta-analyses confirm an increased risk of lung cancer associated with the consumption of high-dose beta-carotene-based supplements, in particular among smokers and ex-smokers, with a "convincing" level of evidence. Except in special cases and under medical supervision, it is best to avoid long-term catches.
