Cancer prevention begins when your fork hits your mouth. PERIOD.

While exercise and stress reduction are keys to health, what you PUT IN your body is equally if not more important (and heads up, this includes toxic thoughts and behaviors).

Here are the top 5 foods for your anti-cancer dinner plate:

1. Cabbage– Cabbage as well as its cruciferous cousins (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc.) have been shown in numerous studies to help prevent the replication of cancer cells (so much that there are supplements that isolate compounds found in these veggies alone).

2. Turmeric– Found in Indian cuisine, this root boosts immunity and helps decrease inflammation.

3. Berries– Yes, cancer-fighting can taste like dessert. Berries have been shown to help prevent the duplication of cancer cells.

4. Green tea– All tea has anti-cancer benefits, but green tea has proven to help prevent the “feeding” of cancer cells.

5. Mushrooms– According to Dr. Andrew Weil you need to choose specific mushrooms for anticancer effects. He suggests shiitakes, enoki, maitake, and reishi.

Healing Lifestyles & Spas began as Healing Retreats & Spas back in 1997 with the premise and mission of bringing and making healing modalities and spa wisdom mainstream. It quickly became obvious, however, that while retreats were an integral part of the spa experience, what the magazine really hoped to do was bring the spa home, allowing readers to create a truly healing lifestyle, and thus the name change in 2001 to Healing Lifestyles & Spas.
