This Anti-Cancer Resource will be expanded from time to time!


Anti-Cancer Foods 1. to 6.
In 1911,  Dr. August von Wassermandiscovered that  selenite (selenium)   injected into mouse cancer tumors caused them to decompose.

In the 1970 ‘s, studies by  Dr. Gerhard Schrauzer  produced a 70% reduction in breast cancer tumors by adding trace amounts of selenium to the diet.Selenium is a very potent anti-cancer agent.  6 cracked nuts will give you your daily selenium; 100 to 200 mcgs is the goal.

Some foods rich in selenium:
- brazil nuts  
- sunflower seeds  
- buckwheat bread  
- onions  
- broccolli  -  Broccoli juice helps patient beat bladder cancer
- tomatoes

Sunflower seeds also contain anti-cancer “Pinoresinol-Lariciresinol”.

Six anti-cancer foods.




Anti-Cancer Food #7.

Curcumin  May Help Prevent Some Types of Cancer


Anti-Cancer Food #8.
Ginger  powerful against ovarian cancer






Anti-Cancer Foods #9 to #11.    -  Oregano,  Garlic  and Thyme
The Four Top Cancer-Fighting Spices

GARLIC.  Recent studies on garlic have shown that it kills insects, parasites, bad bacteria, and fungi.  It  also eliminates various cancerous tumors, lowers blood sugar levels, lowers harmful fats in the blood, and prevents clogging of the arteries.

Not made from assumptions and guesses but backed up with laboratory tests as evidence of this.


Anti-Cancer Food #12.
Grapeseed  extract kills head and neck cancer cells, leaves healthy cells unharmed.   There’s no need to wait for the extract, just eat the  grapeseed fruit!


Anti-Cancer Foods #13 and #14.
Carrot and spinach juice  (anti-cancer recipe).  Add wheatgrass juice, or juice raw broccoli!


Anti-Cancer Food #15.
The Juice of the  Papaya Leaf  (also known as “paw paw”).  Harold W. Tietze in his book Papaya The Medicine Tree, tells the stories of many cancer survivors who reportedly used the juice to get rid of their cancer.


Anti-Cancer Food #16 to #18.
Researchers have also shown that  “allicin”  (garlic) (the organic compound which gives garlic its aroma and flavor) acts as a very potent antioxidant.   Some of these anti-cancer enzymes come from raw (uncooked) foods.

Foods that contain allicin:  bananas, avocados,  green leafy vege (all uncooked), sesame seeds, nuts, herbs, spices, garlic.

Anti-cancer “Pinoresinol-Lariciresinol” is found in  sesame seeds.



Researchers have found that there are  compounds in avocados  that can inhibit the growth of cancerous cells in the prostate.   In some other lab studies  oleic acid in avocados has been proven to kill breast cancer cells.

Here are other  benefits of consuming avocados.    Avocado   €š  against Cancer was also reported in Huffingtonpost.

Sesame seeds are rich in manganese, selenium and zinc and  reduces risk of colorectal cancer  and even boost bone health.  Read more on benefits of sesame seeds.





Anti-Cancer Food #19.
Benefits of Ionized water (against cancer)


Anti-Cancer Foods #20 to #26.   There are 7 kinds of mushrooms that are anti-cancer!  Always consult a herbalist or a naturopathic doctor being self-administering mushrooms.

Death Cap Mushrooms  may offer hope for deadly pancreatic cancer

There ´s an enormous body of research evidence now that shows how medicinal €š mushrooms (Shiitake, Maiitake, Cordycepsp  etc) boost the immune system and fight cancer.  Even the  button mushroom  has cancer fighting ingredients!  Ref:  Deng G, Lin H, Seidman A, Fornier M, D ‘Andrea G, Wesa K, Yeung S, Cunningham-Rundles S, Vickers AJ, Cassileth B. A phase I/II trial of a  polysaccharide extract from Grifola frondosa (Maitake mushroom) in breast cancer patients: immunological effects. J Cancer Res Clin Oncol. 2009 [March 1. Epub ahead of print]

Grifola Frondosa Polysaccharide from Maitake Mushrooms enhances anti-tumour effects and ups immunity.

Antrodia cinnamomea, formerly named Antrodia camphorata, is  a rare medicinal mushroom well-known for its miraculous effect on a number of health conditions, especially those pertaining to the liver and cancerous growths.   But do note, these are not meat to be eaten in excess; eating too much of these may hurt your kidneys.





Anti-Cancer Foods #27.
Pickled fruit enzymes (natural probiotics against cancer)

Beware of pickled fruits with aspartame or artificial sugar.  If you want to be sure, learn how to pickle your own fruits at home!

For raw foods that are too hard to chew, you can juice them into your fruit juice.    Learn how to prepare raw foods!



Anti-Cancer Foods #28.
Baking Soda  against cancer:

Cancer patients usually have an acidic body environment of 6 and lesser, a healthy body has a 7.4 pH value.  The baking soda ONLY helps to re-balance the slightly pH value of your body’s environment, caused by frequent consumption of meat and processed meats for example.  So if a cancer is caused by frequent smoking or by frequent contact with products that causes cancer (eg. paraben-containing lipstick or cream), baking soda may be of little help.

One needs to approach cancer cures realistically – find the root cause and then the solution.


Anti-Cancer Foods #29.
A Vegetable,  Egg Plant (known as “Brinjal” in Asia), Can Cure Skin Cancer
Anti-Cancer Foods #30.

Black cohosh  fights breast cancer by “inducing apoptosis in human breast cancer cells”.





Anti-Cancer Foods #31.

Rosemary has anti-cancer properties too!


Anti-Cancer Foods #32.
“Ojibwa” or the Burdock Root  Herbal Drink, Could Prevent 600,000 Cases of Breast and Colorectal Cancer.  Contains no: sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or artificial preservatives.  Vegetarian/Vegan Product. [A proprietary blend of Burdock Root (Arctium lappa), Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella) (Leaf), Slippery Elm Bark (Ulmus fulva) and Turkey Rhubarb Root (Rheum palmatum) Extracts]

—> “In 1922, Rene Caisse, head nurse at a hospital in Ontario, Canada, began providing an herbal tonic to patients with cancer.  She said  she had learned of this tonic from a woman who had recovered from breast cancer after being given the tonic by an Ojibwa medicine man.” – €š

I’ve also read peer reviews of the Burdock Root (European studies), and it is indeed anti-cancer.

Anti-Cancer Foods #35.
Thunder God Vine, a herb, annihilates cancer in 40 days.


Anti-Cancer Foods #36.
Apricot Seeds or Vitamin B17 Therapy  that is banned in whole of the USA by allowed to be used on cancer patients in at least 2 Mexican Hospitals in Mexico.  (Thank you Robert Mascher for reminding me of this that I meant to add a few months ago but was side-tracked!)


=== A NOTE about CYANIDE in Apricot Seeds ==

Glucose molecules contains carbon monoxide, but glucose don’t kill you. :) And here’s why cyanide in apricot seeds will not kill you, if you know what you are doing.

Natural cyanide (exist in seeds of most fruits but apricot seeds have the highest amount of cyanide) kills cancer cells without affecting healthy cells. This is because healthy cells have a non-penetratable shield that cyanide cannot attack.

Vitamin B-17 is active in apricots. It raises temperature in the body – like fever – to kill cancerous cells. (This is partially why the first symptoms of cancer is frequent fever as the body tries to use fever to kill cancer cells.) Natural cyanide is not poisonous if taken in safe amounts and when you keep to a diet without pro-biotics (the reason is mentioned below).

Seeds of acidic fruits contain cyanide and healthy cells are immune to safe amounts cyanide because they produce an enzyme that negates effects of cyanide. Cyanide goes on to kill only the cancerous cells…something that chemo is NOT able to do because it kills healthy cells as well.

In the USA, the B-17 or laetrile injections are banned for sale. But you can have them by ingesting seeds of apricots, lemons, limes, cherries, apples, prunes and pears. The heavier you are, the more seeds you can take. (Cyanide poisoning you read online is due to ingesting HUNDREDS of these seeds!)

Up to 50 apricot seeds per adult per day is ok and not toxic. In children, up to 20 seeds.

[ In news that you read people dying from eating apricot seeds are mainly hearsay. Actual reports fail to inform the real number of apricot seeds taken. Of course, you can die of consuming hundreds of apricot seeds a day since Vitamin B-17 can raise body temperature. ]

For ‘normal’ people *not diagnosed with cancer, we can take between 4 to 9 seeds a day without any poisoning. It keeps cancer cells in check.

People already on chemo should not be on these seeds because for every cancerous cells killed by chemo, 256 cells die. There may be many cancerous cells in one tumour, so imagine how many healthy cells die in every chemo session!

Finally, apricot seeds should not be consumed with probiotics (mentioned a little earlier on), including raw cultured vegetables like fermented saurkraut or the Korean kimchi as probiotics tend to increase the strength of cyanide. You just want cyanide to work with its normal strength against cancer…let nature work its miracle with as little interference as possible.

If you are unsure of administering apricot seeds (ground to powder and added to your fav drink), approach a qualified nutritionist or holistic doctor.

Pineapple Enzyme  Kills Cancer Without Killing You   €š


Anti-Cancer Foods #38.
Milk Thistle  is effectve against SKIN CANCER


Anti-Cancer Foods #39.
Licorice Roots  “Works better than chemo at killing cancer” (good against prostate cancer and fights tooth decay too).

Please TAKE NOTE:  do consult a herbalist before taking licorice roots, it’s been known for side-effects in some people, namely cause high blood pressure or depletes potassium.  (I would say that Licorice Root should be one of the last natural anti-cancer foods one should try as a “last resort”.)


Anti-Cancer Foods #40.

Saw Palmetto  against Prostate Cancer.  Read the note with scientific studies here:


Anti-Cancer Foods #41 to #48.

Pectin induces apoptosis (encourages death) in human prostate cancer cells (male prostate cancer) €š   €š

Method for inhibiting cancer metastasis by oral administration of soluble modified citrus pectin €š  (eg. pectin from lemons whose pH value is modified).   €š

Usually pectin comes from foods which are high in water-soluble fibre, foods like  lemons, oranges, apricots, peaches, apples, strawberries, bananas, carrots,  cucumbers, celery  and tomatoes.


Strawberries against Esophageal Cancer


Btw,  oranges are also rich in  limonoids  that has been shown to fight cancers of the mouth, skin, lungs, breasts, stomach and colon.

Citrus limonoids and curcumin additively inhibit human colon cancer cells   €š



Anti-Cancer Foods #49.
Flax Seeds.    Anti-cancer “Pinoresinol-Lariciresinol” is  found in  flax seeds.

Lignans,  a powerful phytonutrient found in flaxseeds,  may have the power to slow or stop breast cancer.

“Women with breast cancer who increased their intake of lignans were able to extend their lives — sometimes dramatically.

So researchers decided to give a group of breast cancer patients a daily dose of flaxseed, which has up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods, and the results weren’t just dramatic — they might actually save your life or the life of someone you know.

Study volunteers started each day with a muffin that included either a placebo or nutrient-packed flaxseed. After just ONE MONTH of a daily diet of flaxseed, breast cancer patients saw their cancers spreading more slowly and their tumors actually shrinking. The seeds were actually KILLING their cancer cells.

Flaxseed could be a game-changer.   It could have the power to permanently alter the way we treat breast cancer, and may help women find relief from the twin heartbreaks of radiation and surgery.”

Higher lignan levels improve breast cancer surviva l

Dacryodes edulis fruit,  Moringa oleifera  and  Syzygium aromaticum   €š  were named as foods containing polyphenols €š  that kill prostate cancer.


Anti-Cancer Foods #57 to 59.

A research published by American Association for Cancer Research (2006) found that  Capsaicininhibits the growth of Androgen-Independent, p53 Mutant Prostate Cancer Cells.  (Capsaicin is found in €š  chillies (chili),  bell peppers (jalapeno) and cayenne pepper.)

Led by Dr. Timothy Bates of Nottingham University, researchers found €š  capsaicin attacks tumour cells’ source of energy, and initiates cell-suicide but left the healthy non-cancerous cells alone and in optimum conditions.

Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute worked in collaboration with The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to discover Capsaicin’s €š  ability to destroy a significant amount of the developed cancer cells.  Capsaicin also arrested the development of the cancer tumours.

Capsaicin destroyed about 80% of the developed cancer cells growing inside mice.   Tumour size significantly reduced by 20%.



Anti-Cancer Foods #60.

Graviola  - another word for the fruit known as  SOURSOP.

Some cancer foundations say that GRAVIOLA is not tested on humans, but isn’t it the same for the thousands of other anti-cancer meds prescribed to patients – many of them are not done on humans?

It’s funny because even doctors push GRAVIOLA (soursop) as anti-cancer.    Dr. Ray Sahelianwould long been in legal hot soup if he promoted something that was not anti-cancer.

Annonaceous acetogenins are long chained fatty acid derivatives extracted from different tropical plants such as the tree Annona muricata, also known as Graviola.  It has been recently shown that Graviola extracts exert multiple anticancer activities on pancreatic cancer cell models.

Here’s a study on  graviola’s efectiveness on prostate cancer  - and it’s not the only one that shows some activities on cancer cells:

Many more other studies on graviola’s effect on cancer can be found at

Additionally,  graviola contains allicin, which is anti-cancer.

Chrysin, which is a flavanoid found in the flower of the  Passion Fruit,  was discovered to be the most effective of all the flavonoids tested.  In fact, it was found to be equal in potency to the some cancer drugs, specifically €š  aromatase inhibiting drug used to treat hormone sensitive cancers.   Chrysin, from flower of the passion fruit, provides several other cancer fighting benefits not found in drugs.   Ref:

Researchers from University of Florida found that the carotenoids (predominantly zeta-carotene) and polyphenols of passion fruit extract could  kill cancer cells  in vitro.

“Overall, we have demonstrated that passion fruit juice might not be as beneficial by  inhibiting the cancer cell cycle because of the large solvent effect noticed.  The results did however, show that  fractions of passion fruit juice was capable of inducing apoptosis  and decreasing cell viability of MOLT-4 leukemia lymphoma.  ” –

Passion fruits are also eaten to calm anxiety, and is being studied for insomnia (sleeplessness).

You can find more  information of passion fruits and other herbs in the book, The Healing Power of Rainforest Herbs   €š  which is a FAR CRY from EFSA’s “Compendium of botanicals reported to contain naturally occuring substances of possible concern for human health when used in food and food supplements”?   Ref: €š  Why is EFSA not going after those who may be placing questionable fillers, preservatives, artificial food colourings etc?

Passion fruits‘  other names:  Apricot Vine, Passiflora Incarnata,  Passiflora Edulis Sim (purple passion fruit, Israel),  Maracuja (Portuguese), Maracuy
