Nutrition plays an important role in the development of malignant tumors. According to the WHO, 40% of cancers in men and 60% in women are associated with some type of dietary inaccuracy.
In the production of concentrated, easy-to-prepare products, a variety of preservatives and food additives are used to improve taste and color. All this inevitably leads to the accumulation of carcinogens in the body - harmful substances that help the development of cancer. Lack of coarse fiber contributes to chronic constipation, in which all these harmful substances are not excreted from the body, but continue to accumulate in the intestine and adversely affect its mucous membrane for a long time. Constipation is aggravated by lack of movement, which often affects many residents with their cult of road transport. It turns out to be a vicious circle.
To break out of it, first of all, you need to reduce the consumption of meat and animal fats. Doctors do not advocate a complete rejection of meat food, meat is a valuable nutritious product that is rather difficult to replace with something without harm to health. Aim to eat no more than 500 grams of cooked red meat per week. You should not replace meat with sausages, sausages - their nutritional value is low, and there are more than enough harmful additives and dyes in them.
By choosing healthy foods, you can reduce your chances of developing cancer and certain chronic diseases. Let carrots, beets, cabbage, apples, zucchini, eggplant, pumpkin, turnip, rutabaga in a wide variety of combinations appear on your table as often as possible. Fresh vegetables will provide you with the necessary vitamins and minerals, as well as give your intestines good work to digest fiber. B vitamins, as well as ascorbic acid, vitamins E and A inhibit the formation of substances in the body that promote tumor growth. But alcoholic beverages, and above all beer, increase the risk of developing colon tumors. Various vegetable oils are useful, it is better to refuse animals altogether. Porridge should be one of the main dishes in your diet. It is porridge eaten for breakfast, especially oatmeal, that has a beneficial effect on the intestines, promotes its correct and regular emptying, and prevents the development of tumors.
A properly selected menu not only reduces the risk of developing cancer of the colon, prostate, pancreas, ovaries, and breast tumors, but also helps to keep weight under control. The temperature of the food taken plays an important role. It has been found that constant consumption of food that is too hot increases the risk of developing esophageal cancer. Therefore, an effective measure for the prevention of cancer is adherence to the principles of healthy eating.
