What to Eat To Prevent Cancer
The anti-inflammatory compound is the key of prevention. Beside this, it is important to have an active and healthy lifestyle.
Many foods that have anti-inflammatory compound are already in your spice cabinet.
We all have turmeric, black pepper and olive oil.
How Turmeric Fights Cancer
Turmeric has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Actually, it contains one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory but non-pharmaceutical compounds.
Many studies on cancer cells discovered that curcumin have chemo-preventive effects. The best effects are shown in breast cancer, stomach cancer, bowel cancer and skin cancer cells. Also, it has been effective against prostate, colon, ovarian and brain cancer.
The active compound of black pepper is piperine, which increases the absorption of curcumin and increase the effectiveness of turmeric by 2000%.
Curcumin is fat-soluble, and that’s why olive oil is a great sidekick to turmeric. Olive oil is full of antioxidants and other compounds that are anticancer agents (e.g. terpenoids and squalene).
The recipe that we are going to present you comes from Dr. Carolyn Anderson. He recommends consuming the mixture as often you can.

• 1 pinch of freshly ground black pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients until they blend together.
You can drink this mixture straight whisked in a little water or added to a soup or salad.
