And this isn’t fringe science: According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, a diet rich in plant-based foods vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and beans can help prevent the onset of cancer.While there’s no definitive answer to whether or not any food could directly prevent or treat cancer, there are some things we know for sure. Cancer cells thrive on sugar, and high insulin levels can also increase inflammatory responses in the body, which are a factor in the onset of cancer. Processed meat that contains nitrates can cause inflammation as well.

The idea behind an anti-cancer diet is to strengthen the immune system and address chronic inflammatory symptoms.

 

According to Goodman and the American Institute for Cancer Research, here are some beneficial foods to embrace:

 

Leafy Greens
Spinach, kale, arugula, romaine, collard greens, Swiss chard—they all have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. According to the AICR, carotenoids found in these veggies can inhibit the growth of certain breast and skin cancer cells.

Cruciferous vegetables
Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, rapini, cabbage, and turnips are high in B vitamins and magnesium, as well as polyphenols, which  can slow the growth of cancer cells. And since excess body fat can increase the risk of several types of cancer, the dietary fiber in these non-starchy vegetables can help—particularly with cancer in the mouth, pharynx and larynx, esophagus, and stomach.

Turmeric
“In India, where turmeric is widely used in the diet, the prevalence of four common U.S. cancers—colon, breast, prostate and lung—is 10 times lower,” says Goodman.  The active substance in turmeric is curcumin, which can decrease inflammation and help the body detect and destroy mutated cells.

Ginger
According to Goodman, whole ginger extract can inhibit growth of certain cancer cells by interrupting their cell-cycle progression, impairing cancer reproduction.

Reishi Mushroom
“This powerful medicinal mushroom has been researched for its ability to prevent cancer cell growth, stop tumor and cancer from metastasizing, [and] build immune strength and immune response against advanced stage cancers,” says Goodman.
