Dr. Oz: Fight Cancer With Food
Dr. Oz talked on his show about how we can turn our kitchen into a cancer-fighting powerhouse. He talked to Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, who said that the kitchen is the center of every household. He said food is one thing we definitely have control over when it comes to cancer.
Dr. Oz: Drink Grape Juice to Beat Cancer
Three women with cancer running in their families shared tips on how to ward off cancer as well. The first woman was named Elise and she brought a strainer, but she wasn’t sure why. Dr. Gaynor said he’d asked her to bring it because it’s great for making grape juice.
Grapes are loaded with nutrients. All you have to do is blend grapes for 10 seconds on high and pour it through a strainer. The resulting juice is really healthy for you and it’s a good alternative to store-bought grape juice, which often has added sugar and high fructose syrup.
“The message is you’re not the victim of the genes you’re born with. Your genes can change throughout your lifetime, depending on the foods or toxins you’re putting in your body,” Dr. Gaynor said.
Dr. Oz: Garlic Marinade to Fight Cancer
The next woman brought a garlic press. Dr. Gaynor said that this is great because garlic is loaded with cancer-fighting nutrients. Studies show that people who eat the most garlic have lower risks of cancers, especially stomach and colon cancer.
One great way to use garlic is to combine it with low sodium soy sauce and use it as a marinade for chicken.
Dr. Oz: Popcorn Popper
The next woman, Suzanne, brought a popcorn popper. Dr. Gaynor said that a lot of people don’t know that popcorn has the same cancer-fighting nutrients you find in green tea. It also only has 30 calories per cup.
If you add it to a brown bag and toss it with chili powder and salt, it will taste great without using butter and cheese.
Dr. Gaynor’s book The Gene Therapy Plan is out now.
