Foods rich in beta-carotene
can help counter the effects of free-radicals and may prevent, or even reverse, some precancerous conditions. Sweet potatoes are abundant in beta-carotene, and your recipient will enjoy them as a delicious chip.
Carotenoids may inhibit the growth of cancer cells, and studies suggest that high food intakes of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin reduce the risk for lung cancer. Cryptoxanthin and alpha-carotene have been found to decrease the chance of developing cervical cancer. Leading food sources include apricots, carrots, corn, acorn squash, spinach, sweet potatoes, and sweet red peppers.
Almonds may help reduce risk of bladder, lung, prostate, cervical, and colon cancer, and cherries
are rich in queritrin, a powerful cancer-fighting agent. Our wild berry mix contains both as well as dried blueberries which are also impressive in terms of anti-oxidant properties.
One of our favorite treats are Figamajigs--chocolate Covered Figs. Figs contain a derivative of benzaldehyde which may be effective at shrinking tumors, and dark chocolate is full of antioxidants that can help the body remain healthy.
