How was the weekend? Did you do some healthy shopping? We hope you got loads of rest; better yet, got a really good workout done!!!
Now all the above may not have been how your weekend turned out; and thats ok too, but the most important thing is working on getting proper rest.
Why? Because cancer doesn’t thrive in a calm and relaxed environment: an environment at peace.
Cancer also doesn’t thrive in a body that is in an akaline state. Now am sure the question on your mind is; how do I get my body to be akaline?
A state of alkalinity simply means eating foods that helps maintain the body’s pH between a range of 7.0 -7.7. Once the body is at this pH, it reduces the chances for cancer to thrive.
Research has shown that certain foods and nutrients help prevent or conversely contribute to certain types of cancer. Although maintaining a good diet and weight are central for cancer prevention, combining them with other healthy habits greatly lowers the risk of cancer.
Here a list of foods you should avoid and ultimately cut out and a list of foods you should eat more;
Foods to avoid:
- GMOs (genetically modified foods)
- Canned foods
- Smoked foods
- Processed and red meat
- Refined sugars (Note: cancer cells thrive in a sugary environment)
- Carbonated Beverages
- Hydrogenated Oils
Foods to eat more of:
- Organic Produce
- Oyster mushrooms
- All green vegetables (lettuce, bitter leaf, kale, celery, parsley, green peas)
- Other vegetables (carrot, pumpkin, tomatoes etc.)
- Cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli)
- Bell peppers (the more colourful the better)
- raw salads; no artificial dressings
- Herbs and spices (ginger, garlic, turmericetc.)
Not only will eliminating “the foods to avoid” lower your cancer risk, you will also start to feel (and look) better from the inside out.
So next time you want to eat steak and sausage, remember that cancer thrives on those and we want cancer to stay out!

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are readingNigerian Catholic Reporter than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

Nigerian Catholic Reporter’s independent, engagement journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because of our strong desire to use this platform to redirect the warped thinking of perceived citizens of God’s kingdom towards biblical injunctions and God’s desired culture for His people.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as N500, you can support Nigerian Catholic Reporter.
