Cancer is the deadliest disease and we pray that nobody ever faces the time to battle with it.
Nature has given so many things to us, and sometimes we try these remedies on ourselves. But, is there anything that can cure Cancer?
Yes, we have many food items that can fight cancer and there are many compounds that increase the anti-cancer activities. There are some anticancer substances that can destroy cancer stem.
The best food item that battles with cancer cells is turmeric, it has an active compound known as curcumin, which targets cancer stem cells. The study showed that curcumin has much better and more positive effects than 5-fluorouracil, a chemotherapy drug, which comes to kill stem cells of colon cancer.
Another research says that ginger has also a compound that is very effective in targeting and destroying breast cancer stem cells when compared to a chemo drug known as taxol. Other foods that are rich in ellagic acids, such as blueberries are another effective food item to fight with stem cells of cancer.
The new cancer research entitled Natural Products that fight and destroy Cancer Stem Cells. It gave a list of 25 substances that are naturally found in foods, and are beneficial in targeting cancer. Here is these substances list:
Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) which is found in green tea
Beta-carotene found in carrots as well as in leafy greens
Curcumin found in turmeric
Ellagic acid which is also found in green tea and as mentioned, blueberries as well as other berries
Baicalein which you can find in Chinese skullcap
Delphinidin in blueberries and raspberries
Glucoraphanin which you can find in cruciferous veggies, such as cabbage and broccoli
Lycopene in tomatoes and grapefruits
Indole-3-carbinol also in cruciferous veggies
Guggulsterone from the myrrh tree
Vitamin D3 in fish, beef, sunlight, and egg yolk
Withaferin A from ashwagandha

The food mentioned above is much stronger than chemotherapy. The important reason why chemo and radiation therapy fails on some patients is that many cancer stem cells are resistant to treatments like them.
There are some proofs that show sometimes Chemotherapy and radiation therapy make stem cells even more dangerous. It has also side effects which can damage your immune system. The listed food items may become the future medicines in curing this deadliest disease.
