The FDA has long frowned upon anyone claiming that vegetables or superfoods cure cancer. It's been okay to say they "prevent" cancer, but a cure is apparently reserved only for the realm of drugs, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation (none of which actually cure anything, in reality). That's why this article is so interesting: it claims that compounds from broccoli could be used in a cure for cancer. And it's not just broccoli, it's other foods, too: cabbage, mustard greens, turnips and more.

Regardless of the FDA's strongly biased opinions, the fact remains that foods and superfoods do cure cancer. Broccoli reverses breast cancer. Carrots help reverse lung cancer. Ginger, onions and garlic shrink tumors throughout the body. These foods are healing foods, and they do in fact reverse serious disease. I've often said that if broccoli could be sold as a precription drug, it would be headline news. That's because it offers a vast array of cancer-fighting compounds, including antiangiogenesis phytochemicals that help "starve" tumors so they die, all without harming healthy cells.

One thing always makes me laugh about all this research, however: as usual, researchers are trying to peer inside the secrets of nature and isolate the "magic" compounds that create these anti-cancer effects. And that's the wrong approach. Instead, people should be eating the whole foods — the whole broccoli — not taking lab-concocted broccoli-mimicking chemicals sold as prescription drugs. You want to cure your own cancer? Start eating raw or steamed broccoli (don't cook it). And get the book Eat To Beat Cancer which tells you how to eat your way back to health with common, everyday grocery store foods.

It really isn't a mystery. You don't have to wait for science to tell you that broccoli reverses cancer. Nature has already proven it. Of course, it would also help if you'd stop poisoning yourself with sodium nitrite, refined sugar, white bread, soft drinks, hydrogenated oils and other metabolic disruptors. Your body can't heal if it's cowering under an assault of dietary poisons and chemical toxins.
