Dr. Oz: Food is Medicine

Posted:

Breaking news: A recent study shows that a vegetarian diet may reduce blood cancers by as much as forty five percent. You don't have to be a full blown vegetarian to reap cancer-fighting benefits.

I recommend eating nine handfuls of fruits and vegetables every day.

Every week, eat 10 or more tablespoons of tomato products for lycopene, which is a carpanoid, which reduces the risk of prostate and breast cancer.

The good news here? Pizza contains lycopene. You got it right!

Cruciferous vegetables, you know, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower, have been shown to prevent bladder and stomach cancers by fifty percent.

Instead of red meat, choose fish like cod and sardines. They are rich in selenium, and they are much better for you.

Food is medicine.
