The diet may boost your defenses against cancer, and evidence has identified certain elements that have anti-cancer properties, the most important of which is parsley, which contains compounds that may have anti-cancer effects.
The anti-cancer effect is attributed to the role that a specific compound found in parsley plays in reducing oxidative stress, a condition characterized by an imbalance in the levels of substances called antioxidants, and unstable atoms called free radicals.
Cancer development and progression has been linked to oxidative stress by increasing DNA mutations, or causing DNA damage.
Parsley is especially rich in the antioxidants flavonoids and vitamin C, which reduces oxidative stress in your body and may reduce the risk of some types of cancer.
For example, evidence suggests that eating high amounts of flavonoids in the diet may reduce the risk of colon cancer by up to 30%.
In addition, subsets of flavonoids in parsley – such as myricetin and apigenin – have shown anticancer activity in test tube and animal studies.
Moreover, eating foods rich in vitamin may reduce the risk of cancer.
Half a cup (30 grams) of parsley provides 53% of the recommended dietary intake of this nutrient.
One study found that increasing vitamin C by 100 mg per day reduced the overall risk of cancer by 7%.
Moreover, increasing the vitamin C diet by 150 mg daily may reduce the risk of prostate cancer by up to 21%.
General tips to reduce your risk of developing cancer:
Eating a healthy, balanced diet can directly aid in weight loss and directly reduce the risk of some types of cancer.
Also, eating plenty of high-fiber foods helps reduce the risk of bowel cancer.
“Red and processed meat is associated with a higher risk of bowel and prostate cancer,” says Macmillan Medical.
Several studies have also found that regular physical activity can reduce the risk of cancer and may help maintain a healthy weight.
