This, of course, is not a cure for cancer, but as a daily practice it can bring invaluable benefits in the future.
Protect your face
“Your skin is the easiest target for cancer.” So says dermatologist Joseph Sobanko of the University of Pennsylvania, which is why he wears a generic SPF 30 sunscreen, which contains zinc or titanium, on his face every morning. He has long ago become a daily morning habit – like shaving and brushing teeth.
Eat spinach, eggs, and avocado
Philip Spiess, an oncologist and genitourinary specialist at the Moffitt Cancer Center, stews ¼ cups of frozen spinach in a saucepan every morning, mixes it with a whole egg, and pours in a glass of egg white separately. Sprinkle with grated cheese (literally a pinch!), Add an avocado, some chili sauce – and roll the mixture. He considers it to be the best cancer food ever.
Give up plastic
Jun Chan, a professor of urology at the University of California, San Francisco, never uses plastic packaging because it can contain chemicals that are close to cancer. She carries lunch with her to work (salad, cabbage, feta, pumpkin seeds, raisins) only in ceramic dishes. Well, the bag is getting heavier, but this can be regarded as additional training.
Take vitamins for your skin
Anthony Rossi, dermatologist at the Memorial Cancer Center. Sloan-Kettering, taking nicotinamide with food every morning. It is a form of vitamin B3 that prevents certain types of skin cancers (caused by cell damage caused by ultraviolet rays). However, vitamin is a vitamin, and you shouldn’t forget about sunscreens either.
Don’t forget about nuts
A study by the National Institutes of Health found that male smokers who have a weakness for nuts are less likely to develop lung cancer. In all likelihood, this is due to the fact that nuts slow down the oxidative stress of the body directly associated with smoking, which is why Matthew Jurgelon, an oncologist at the Dana-Farber Institute of Oncology, relies on almonds or pistachios every day. Make it a rule to eat twenty nuts daily.
Eat more fish
UCLA urologist Christopher Saigal has long given up meat in favor of fish. His classic dinner is grilled salmon with brown rice and vegetables. “I tell patients that ‘food for a healthy heart’ is also associated with a lower chance of developing prostate cancer and a lower risk of progression after diagnosis.” In addition, a study was conducted in the UK showing that consumption of processed meat is associated in some way with colorectal cancer.
Chronic stress can easily lead to the development of cancer cells. However, it is easy to say – “calm down”! And how to do this with such and such a life? Urologist Nelson Bennett of Northwestern University Fiberg School of Medicine recommends the following: Close the door, turn off the phone, sit down. Inhale deeply through the nose, exhale through the mouth ten times. Close your eyes and try to concentrate on all the smallest sounds – be it the hum of fluorescent lamps or the chirping of a secretary outside the door. Now think about your own breath, listen to it, appoint it as the main one. It will turn out not immediately, but about 15 sessions.
Train for at least 75 minutes a week
A study by JAMA Internal Medicine found that people who either exercise vigorously for an hour and a half a week or simply engage in moderate activity for two and a half hours reduced their chances of dying from cancer by an average of 30 percent compared to those who leads a sedentary lifestyle.
Drink green tea in the morning
Alan Wang, an oncologist at Northwest Hospital in Kishwaukee, just drinks a mug of green tea every morning. In a 2016 study, Maofeng green tea had one of the highest levels of antioxidants. But it is important to remember that antioxidants serve precisely to prevent cancer (and precisely in men), and if a tumor, God forbid, already exists, according to some studies, they can even accelerate its growth.
