Dr. Oz: Anti-Cancer Superfoods Grocery List with David Katz


Dr. Oz and David Katz, author of The Way to Eat: A Six-Step Path to Lifelong Weight Control and Director and Co-Founder of the Yale Prevention Research Center, discussed a list of anti-cancer superfoods for us to take to the grocery.  Here is Dr. Oz’s anti-cancer grocery list!  This list will change and maybe even save your life, since these foods help fight cancer and prevent rogue cells from growing out of control.  Last year, 1.5 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed in America.  600,000 people died from cancer in the USA last year, and 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will face cancer at some point in their life.

The American Institute for Cancer Research found that 1 in 3 cases of cancer can be prevented.  In fact, the study of epigenetics has shown that certain foods we eat can turn on or off the genes that cause us to get cancer.  Cancer is a complex disease, but changing your diet can be just as effective at reducing your risk of cancer as quitting smoking.  David Katz said that 30-60% of cancer can be prevented by eating anti-cancer superfoods.

    Could you give me the proportions of a drink from the show on Feb. 24th on Superfoods? I would like to re-create the 16 oz. green drink that Karen made on the show.

    Hi Bryan! I’m not sure about the exact proportions, but she said her green drink is a 16 ounce green drink made of kale, chard, collard greens, lemon with the rind, ginger and celery.

    I too would also like the measurements of Karen’s drink. My 4yr old was diagnosed in Aug 2008 with Undifferentiated Embryonal Sarcoma of the Liver and underwent a full resection of the tumor followed by 6 months of chemo. As of today there is no sign of new or recurring disease.
    We were torn about using chemo b/c we knew we could try to fight this with food but not as easy to do with a 4yr old so we did both. Our family of 4 changed our entire diet to help Miranda fight this disease. No more red meat, junk food, candy, soda, HFCS, partially hydrogenated oils, fried foods, processed foods, etc. We now eat more dark chocolate, a lot of greens, nuts, fish, vitamin D3 with omega from fish oil…we even invested in a Vitamix blender to make healthy smoothies. It was a difficult start but we’re on track. Having Karen’s recipe would really help. Thanks!

    Very good summary of a balanced and healthy diet for protecting against and overcoming cancer. I absolutely agree that healthy foods are no more expensive than all of the junk most people add to their shopping carts. On shopping trips with my patients, we have demonstrated this reality time and again.

    A couple of suggestions that I recommend for my patients include Udo’s Oil Blend 3-6-9 (perfect blend of essential fatty acids). It can be used in salad dressings, smoothies, and green drinks. And only buy Extra Virgin Olive Oil, as much of the regular olive oil available is not much better than the plethora of hydrogenated oils on the supermarket shelves. Buy oil in smaller quantities as well. And refrigerate as soon as the bottle is opened. Avoid buying the large tins! As soon as the large bottles or cans are opened, the exposure to oxygen in the air begins the oxidation process – which leads to rancidity. And the oil has to become very rancid before we can actually smell it. Long before then, the destructive damage has already been done to your cells.

    Also it is important to emphasize GMO-free tofu, as many allergic reactions occur with the inclusion of regular soy products. We do not know the long term effects of genetically modified foods in our diet either, so it is best to avoid being another human laboratory experiment. Fermented soy products are excellent additions to the diet as well, for the protein (tempeh) and the enzymes (miso – great for adding flavor in homemade salad dressings).

    And in the green drink it is important to use organic lemons if you are including the rind and the pits as the pesticides reside within the skin and pits/seeds. Yet the skin and pits are also loaded with protective nutrients (e.g. B-vitamins, potassium, zinc, calcium, magnesium, etc) – and of course the essential bioflavonoids are right under the skin.

    Thank you for providing this valuable information. I will post this article on my FB page, LinkedIn group and Twitter for sure.
