A feed and lifestyle are used to cancer prevention. The impact of the disease reduction benefit is becoming clearer every day. However, there is an unknown world yet to be discovered to prevent and treat cancer. THE feed it is critical it can prevent or delay the onset of cancer.
In Brazil, the flora is exceptionally rich and considered the greatest biodiversity in the world. Thus, many foods can make a difference in health throughout life, including until aging. Finally, they are rich in bioactive substances that can significantly protect us from several common diseases.
Currently, it has been discovered that the intestinal environment, a direct consequence of food, plays an important role so that many diseases simply do not appear. On the other hand, those that arise can be combated by correct food intake. The damaged and fragile intestines in their epithelial structure favor the entry of many harmful substances to the body. Therefore, our intestines are the source of health to fight diseases.inflammatory, infectious, degenerative, autoimmune diseases and cancer.
Clinical research and knowledge of food should be encouraged for students in the health field. Many active ingredients have yet to be isolated so that disease prevention, including cancer itself, can be intervened. The investment, despite being high in technology, has a guaranteed return. Young people should be encouraged to research, as the universe of bioactive principles is still completely unknown. Therefore, once discovered, clinical research should be invested for scientific proof of applicability in the prevention and / or treatment of numerous diseases.
Brazil should invest in high-level schools in different regions of the country in the construction of laboratories in universities for research in pharmacology. Thus, each biome has its particularities and riches. Therefore, the investments will have a certain return for the population to treat numerous diseases. Each active ingredient can generate foreign exchange that can put Brazil at the forefront of therapies in the world. That said, only with seriousness and investment can these objectives be achieved. Therefore, the treatment of diseases is hidden in nature. It is the biggest source for solutions to the diseases that affect the world.
Food is present in our lives from the moment we are born. It gives us energy for daily activities. Therefore, diseases that we will develop during our lives are or may be related to what we eat. Therefore, it can be said that they are the product of our environment.
Prostate cancer, for example, does not start when the diagnosis is made, but started 20 to 30 years earlier. Thus, the DNA changes (mutations) start with one and are added to other genes on the chromosomes. In this way, they disrupt cellular functionality.
Its aggressiveness is related to the number and quality of mutations that occur. If it occurs in genes oncogenes e tumor suppressor genes important for cell control and therefore, the more disorganized the structure of chromosomes, the worse it will be. Thus, there are different aggressions of the same disease. Therefore, no patient's prostate cancer is the same as any other diagnosed.
Thus, food protects us or may even be related to its onset and aggressiveness of the disease. Furthermore, pharmacological studies show that food can protect us from many diseases, including cancer.
Red and purplish fruits are rich in antioxidants and therefore fight free radicals eliminated in cell metabolism. Free radicals damage cellular organelles and can change the DNAtherefore, it can cause mutations. When sufficient in number, they can promote the onset of cancer. Therefore, red fruits improve tissue activities, favoring their functional maintenance. The two main antioxidants found in berries are ellagic acid and anthocyanins. Therefore, they are considered substances that fight aging and cancer.
Above all, the consumption of red and purplish foods is rich in active substances that prevent free radicals from attacking DNA. Thus, they bind to these molecules. They are rich in lycopene, antioxidants such as polyphenols:
They are found in fruits: tomato, cherry, acerola, strawberry, red guava, watermelon, cherry, raspberry, blackberry, grape, blueberry (blueberry), açaí, pepper, papaya, pomegranate, etc. Even more, if they are organic, they will be even richer in their active substances.
They have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-tumor properties. In addition, they are rich in trace elements and vitamins that are essential for cell function.
|Tomato, cherry, strawberry, red guava, acerola||Lycopene, ellagic acid, melatonin, anthocyanins, salicylic acid||Antioxidant, prevents angiogenesis, reduces cell invasion|
|Pomegranate||Ellagic acid, capsaici-na, punicalagins||Reduces neoplastic cell movements|
|Pepper||Capsaicin||Inhibits uncontrolled cell proliferation and induces apoptosis (drop in PSA)|
|Propolis||Flavonoids||Antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor|
|Red wine||Resveratrol, anthocyanin||Antioxidant (decreases 40% CaP)|
|Raspberry, blackberry||Lycopene, anthocyanin, resveratrol, gallic acid, flavanols||Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial|
|Blueberry (blueberry)||anthocyanin||Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory (youth fruit), strengthens immune system|
|Garlic and onion||allium||Decreases tumor growth and 50% in CaP|
|Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower)||Indol-3-carbinol||Anticancerigen (apoptosis)|
|Turmeric (saffron)||curcumin|| Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, |
|Green tea||Catechin (polyphenols) theanine||Increases serotonin, anticancer (inhibits cell growth and angiogenesis)|
The simple ingestion of food rich in certain bioactive substances does not guarantee that its absorption will occur. So and for that, it depends on its digestion by enzymes to release the active substance from food or medicine, distribution throughout the body. Therefore, it must act on the target cell during its local metabolism and finally its excretion from the body. Many chemical reactions participate in this complex scenario. So, ultimately, we are a huge chemical reaction factory. However, it all starts in the intestines and they must be prepared to perform their function to the extreme.
The amount of bacteria in the intestines is greater than the number of cells that make up our body. Thus, the intestinal microbiota must be well to perform its metabolic function for adequate intestinal absorption. Therefore, commensal microorganisms are necessary for digestion, they help us in this digestive process by preparing bioactive molecules for their intestinal absorption. Bearing in mind that at least 500 species inhabit the intestines, only 40 to 50 of them will be the most frequent.
Besides them, green tea, turmeric (turmeric), cruciferous vegetables (kale, cauliflower, broccoli), propolis, ginger, garlic, onion, lemon, etc. So, just consume them in your diet throughout your life. So, no medicine is as good as what nature gives us. Finally, only wisdom is needed for our protection.
It is worth remembering the wise words of Hippocrates, the father of Medicine, spoken more than 300 years BC: “May your medicine be your food. And may your food be your medicine. Therefore, the prevention and cure of virtually all ills is in your food, in nature. So, stay lucid, eat in a conscious way and see for yourself the changes that this brings in your life ”.
