Eat to beat cancer, psoriasis, blindness, obesity……

I just watched this 20 minute TED talk on the science of how our foods maintain our health. We already know this but its nice when the scientists demonstrate their proofs.

Basically, we can eat food which will prevent the growth of blood vessels that feed cancer tumours and many many other diseases including psoriasis and even obesity.

Here is the list of foods Doctor Li identifies as potent:

apples oranges lemon grapefruit

strawberries  blackberries  raspberries

blueberries green tea pineapple

cherries red grapes red wine

bok choy kale soy beans

tomatoes tuna sea cucumber

ginseng maitake mushroom liqorice

turmeric nutmeg artichokes

lavender pumpkin parsley

garlic olive oil grape seed oil

dark chocolate

Watch the talk here:

can we eat to starve cancer?

‘William Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor. The crucial first (and best) step: Eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game’.

Interestingly, this list has a large overlap with the findings of Dr Williamson at Leeds University on the top 20 foods for a long and healthy life. These are foods high in polyphenols. The full list can be found here:
