Superfood DESTROYS Breast & Colon Cancers
I’ve seen enough cancer in my career… and enough people wrecked by mainstream cancer treatments… to learn one powerful thing about the disease.
The best way to beat cancer is to never get it in the first place.
You can quit smoking (and you should) and spend more time in the sun — which will both decrease your cancer risk.
But research is now proving that there’s one powerful superfood that can slash your cancer risk… and maybe even kill cancer cells before they become full-blown tumors.
It contains powerful compounds that I’ve been telling my patients about for years — but odds are, you’ll never learn about them in a mainstream doctor’s office.
When you think of superfoods, chances are onions aren’t the first thing that pop into your mind.
But they should be.
People who eat the most onions have been found to have a lower risk of numerous cancers, including laryngeal, colorectal, and ovarian cancers.
Now, the latest research has found that onions are extremely effective at killing both colon and breast cancer cells.
This study, published in Food Research International, showed that when a compound found in red onions, called quercetin, was placed in direct contact with the cancer cells, it launched an all-out attack that absolutely DESTROYED cancer cells.
This included activating pathways that lead to cancer cell death and keeping cancer cells from spreading by disrupting the communication between them.
The researchers tested five types of onions, and the Ruby Ring variety came out on top.
That’s not surprising to me. The deep, rich color of red onions is a dead giveaway of their health benefits. That’s because the compounds that give them their color—quercetin and anthocyanin—have their own impressive resume of health benefits.
Studies have shown that quercetin reduces inflammation, supports heart health, fights allergies, and more. You’ll also see it in lots of prostate supplements.
Plus, a study published in the Journal of Biological Regulators and Homeostatic Agents showed that people who consume a diet rich in quercetin have a lower risk of cancer.
In fact, quercetin is a common denominator in some of nature’s most powerful superfoods, including blueberries, kale, and broccoli.
Anthocyanins have plenty of benefits in their own right as well. Foods that contain anthocyanins have been found to have anticancer effects on breast, prostate, colon, and oral cancers. They’ve also been shown to stop cancer cells from spreading.
In fact, studies have shown that anthocyanins contain 2 TIMES the antioxidant power of vitamin C!
As impressive as they are alone, they’re even better TOGETHER.
When anthocyanins are paired with quercetin, it boosts the properties of quercetin, making foods that contain these two nutrients some of the most nutritious out there.
And while all onions contain quercetin, they don’t all contain anthocyanins. That’s what makes red onions so powerful.
This study was done on cancer cells in a lab setting. But what research has shown is that people who eat the highest amounts of onions, or foods with quercetin and anthocyanins, have a GREATLY REDUCED risk of cancer.
That’s all the evidence I need.
Besides, red onions make a delicious addition to just about any dish. Two of my favorite ways to eat them are sliced on top of a juicy hamburger, and diced up in a fresh summer salad with grilled chicken and avocado.
Don’t you just love it when something that tastes so good is good for you, too?
To a brighter day,
