Cancer Fighting Foods

Collections of fruits isolated on white background

Foods that fight cancer are berries, blueberries, broccoli, cruciferous vegetables, carrots, cranberries, dark green leafy vegetables, garlic, green tea, pomegranates, soy, strawberries, tomatoes, and salmon.

Everyone knows how important good nutrition and a safe environment is to health. The marketplace can be very confusing. It can take good brain exercise to make the right choices for your body, your family and your home.

Eat your vegetables. Have some fruit. Eat this. Eat that. These messages replay in your head, day in and day out. It seems there are so many choices. How do you decide what to eat and how much do you eat? What is safe? What is nutritious? What is unhealthy? What is healthy? Who do you trust?

Proven Research

When you do your research you will find it has been proven many times over that the nutrients found in certain foods support good health. They have been found to support the health of your eyes, heart, growth and development, improve cellular health and even reduce the risk of some types of cancer.

You spend the time, money, and effort to gather and prepare all the food you need each month to support optimal health. Yet because of an often hectic lifestyle it is difficult to gather, prepare, and eat those foods in proper quantities each and every day. This opens the door to consider supplementation so as to fill the gaps.

Consider Supplements

Here again there are so many supplements in the marketplace. Who do you trust? How about a company that has had over 50 years of experience in promoting and protecting your long-term health? GNLD/NeoLife is such a company. We have been providing supplements you can trust since 1958.

The good news is that NeoLife has done all the research and development to bring you safe, broad spectrum supplements you can depend on. An example of this is our Carotenoid Complex. Just one bottle of 90 capsules provides the equivalent carotenoid power of 250 pounds of fruits and vegetables each month. This means that every day for a month, you would have to consume over 8 pounds of fruits and vegetables to get those equivalent nutrients.

Carotenoid2013-03-13_1715NeoLife Carotenoid Complex packs a full spectrum of 15 protective carotenoids into a daily 3 capsule serving using non-GMO ingredients. 

What are the benefits of NeoLife Carotenoid Complex?

  • Prevents free radical damage
  • Slows the aging process
  • Reduces cardiovascular disease
  • Prevents and reverses the growth of cancer cells
  • Slows the risk of degenerative eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Reduces progression of  nervous system degenerative diseases

Simple suggestions and benefits of increasing vegetable intake:

  1. Shop for fresh vegetables and fruits once a week purchasing enough for the week
  2. Clean (with NeoLife Green), cut up, and store snack stable veggies in individual air-tight serving containers
  3. Plan a raw veggie salad for at least one meal per day
  4. Add 1 cup of veggies to at least 2 meals per day (we often have lightly steamed or stir-fried veggies with our eggs for breakfast instead of or with a piece of toast)
  5. Remember: eating vegetables is helpful in losing body fat

How much to eat?

Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!


2 Christy Garrett @ Uplifting Families January 27, 2014 at 7:13 pm

This is excellent information.  I love eating fresh berries when they are in season.  My favorites include cherries and blueberries.

3 Pat Moon January 28, 2014 at 10:37 am

Hi Christy,

Yes, fresh berries are so good. When they are not in season, I eat frozen ones. Then I take my supplements to fill the gaps and make sure I get my nutrients daily.

We eat more blueberries than cherries but I believe it is because blueberries are more available in a frozen source. Berries are good!

Stay healthy, Pat

Thanks for sharing excellent information. For me  is carrots because carrots along with apricots, peppers and pumpkins, they provide cancer carotenoids like beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A, when required by the body. 1 cup of carrot juice, 2 sweet potatoes, 16 dried apricots and 4 cups of red cherries will each provide 25mgs. Don´t eat them all at once – people have been known to turn a little orange! A great juice to make yourself involves carrots and apples (for quercitin) and beetroot (for anthocyanins). A real cancer fighting drink! Carotenoids are also found in natural food sources such as chlorella.


5 Pat Moon January 21, 2014 at 8:26 am

Hi Amelia,

Thanks for all your additional information. I personally do not juice because of the high, concentrated amounts of sugar. I much prefer to get my nutrients from whole foods (I also enjoy chewing) or from whole food supplements. The NeoLife supplements are from whole foods from the human food chain. I know some people are ok with eating sea algae but I do not ever expect to sit down to a plate of it. Rather than chlorella (sea algae), I use NeoLife Tre-en-en or Formula IV+ for the absolutely essential nutrients most of us are missing in our daily diets.

Stay healthy!


6 Robin Strohmaier January 19, 2014 at 9:14 pm

Excellent information, Pat! I do eat broccoli, carrots, dark green leafy vegetables and salmon on a regular basis. When berries are in season, I will also add them to our diets. I have heard the cancer fighting benefits, but it does help that I genuinely like most. For non seasoned vegtables or hard to get fruit in the winter, I do see how a suppliment would be a great solution. NeoLife Carotenoid Complex sounds like a great product.

7 Pat Moon January 20, 2014 at 2:03 pm

Hi Robin,

I’m happy to hear that you enjoy healthy choices of vegetables, etc. to help reduce the risk of developing cancer. Finding all those foods fresh when in season can be a challenge especially in certain areas of the country.

I, personally do supplement with the NeoLife Carotenoid Complex year around but increase the supplementation during the off season of less available supply of fresh organic produce. I look at it as one of my staple, basic supplements.

Keep your good health. Yes, the Carotenoid Complex is an outstanding product… nothing out there that compares to its quality.

Thanks for visiting.


8 Gilly January 12, 2014 at 9:14 am

It's good to know this. I have now in my head adults 4 to 5 cups of fruits and vegetables and children 3.5 cups! Thank you for the list and tips too pat!

9 Pat Moon January 13, 2014 at 11:42 am

Hi Gilly, great info to keep in your head as you prepare meals, snacks, etc. Another way to remember is to think servings in a day.  Typically you need 2 to 4 servings of fruit daily and 3 to 5 servings of veggies daily. Good guidelines.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for commenting. Make you day great and healthy.


10 Yvonne Brown January 10, 2014 at 8:38 am

It is also a good idea to eat those foods in raw form if it is at all possible.

11 Pat Moon January 10, 2014 at 1:20 pm

Hi Yvonne,

Yes, raw form is generally best if possible although some are better lightly steamed. I fill the gaps with the quality NeoLife Supplements I have distributed for over 28 years.

I appreciate you taking time to read and comment.

Blessings, Pat

Supplements really can enhance our health and lives

I love your cancer fighting list and the image

13 Pat Moon January 10, 2014 at 1:17 pm

Yes, Robin, supplements do really enhance our health. I’m curious, what supplements do you take? 

Continue being healthy. Pat

14 Sharon O'Day January 9, 2014 at 2:36 am

Pat, you asked about how to prep kale?  I do a variant on Bobby Flay's recipe for Sauteed Kale:  You can play with oils and the stock, for example, but it's the garlic that really brings out its interest.  (We grew up with something similar in Brazil.)

15 Sharon O'Day January 9, 2014 at 2:37 am

Pat, there might be an extra space at the end of that link … 😉

16 Pat Moon January 10, 2014 at 1:13 pm

Yes, Sharon, the link did not work but I found it by searching. All’s well. Thanks.

17 Pat Moon January 10, 2014 at 1:12 pm

Sharon, thanks for the recipe.. I’ve printed it off so I can try it. Have to go to town and shop for kale first. It sounds good and also simple which is my style of cooking.

Thanks for responding. Pat

18 Sharon O'Day January 17, 2014 at 5:52 pm

Hope you enjoy it, Pat.  I know I fix it for American friends who are surprised they can actually like kale … if they haven't tried it before …

19 Pat Moon January 20, 2014 at 1:51 pm

Hi Sharon,

Yes, the kale recipe you shared actually surprised both my husband and myself. It was delicious prepared that way. Very tasty.

Thanks for sharing.


20 Connie, Social Media Buzzmeister January 8, 2014 at 8:55 pm

I love that you addressed your headline in your very first paragraph with an easy to remember list of cancer fighting foods.  I'll remember it the next time I'm at the grocery store!  So thank you!

21 Pat Moon January 10, 2014 at 12:52 pm

Hi Connie,

I’m glad you found the list of cancer fighting foods helpful. There are other beneficial foods but these are some of the top ones.

I appreciate your readership.

Stay healthy!


22 Simona January 8, 2014 at 7:55 pm

I have all of them in my fridge right now, minus cranberries and pomegranates. I eat berries and fruits instead of desert and we just discovered kale (I know, late…). That should help me stay healthy! 

23 Pat Moon January 8, 2014 at 8:51 pm

Good for you, Simona. I love hearing about people who are taking positive action to stay healthy. Tell me, how do you prepare your kale? It have been a bit of a challenge for me to prepare in a delicious manner?

Stay healthy! Pat

24 Tina Ashburn January 8, 2014 at 7:41 pm

What great advise. You make it easy to get the needed amout of vegies into the daily diet without difficulty! WOW!

25 Pat Moon January 8, 2014 at 8:47 pm

Hi Tina, thanks for that compliment. My hope and passion is that people will really make positive changes in their diets to include foods that will protect their health. It really isn’t that difficult.

Your flower arrangements also do a great deal to give people more happiness which leads to better health.

Great to have you as a reader. Pat

26 jessica s. January 8, 2014 at 7:13 pm

thanks so much for sharing, i always wonder why info like this isn't more widely publicized because as you say the results are clear!

27 Pat Moon January 8, 2014 at 8:43 pm

Yes, Jessica, results are clear. People just do not always pay attention or more importantly take action. Of course cancer is no respector of anyone. Even so, they need to be responsible for what they eat and not just depend on the doctor to fix them totally. They need to do their part.

Thanks for being a reader of my blog. Pat

28 Roslyn January 8, 2014 at 3:10 pm

As always, great research, info, usable lists.

29 Pat Moon January 8, 2014 at 8:34 pm

Thanks, Roslyn. My passion is to help people be healthier so they can enjoy that beautiful jewelry you make.

Stay healthy. Pat

30 veronica January 8, 2014 at 3:07 pm

Thanks for this list. great information. I'll definitely share

31 Pat Moon January 8, 2014 at 8:31 pm

Veronica, thanks for sharing. There are so many who need to know how to fight or better yet avoid cancer.

Your readership is appreciated. Pat

32 Kungphoo January 8, 2014 at 1:19 pm

This is good information to know, since our family has been affected by this terrible desiese.

33 Pat Moon January 8, 2014 at 8:29 pm

Hi Robert, so sorry to hear your family has been affected by cancer. It is almost at epidemic levels. It seems every few days I hear of someone else who has it. That is one of the reasons I am so passionate about sharing things people can do to fight it off or better yet avoid it altogether.

Blessings to you and you family. Pat

34 Alexandra McAllister January 8, 2014 at 12:14 pm

Thanks for sharing all these helpful tips, Pat. Eating and drinking healthy is very important..along with exercise, of course. I know that from personal experience. 🙂

35 Pat Moon January 8, 2014 at 8:26 pm

Yes, Alexandra, our personal experience tell us so much about our health and nutrition, we just need to listen to our bodies. We need to observe how we feel after eating all food.. that will tell us whether it is good for us.

I notice you are having good results from your exercise program.. that is so great!

To your long term good health. Pat
