There are 7 foods and drinks which can inhibit cancer and tumor development. These foods include tomatoes, red wine, blueberries, curry, black chocolate and green tea.
According to scientists, these foods are even more effective than chemotherapy.
What caused their hidden power?
These foods stop the blood supply to the tumor cells, property which is known anti-angiogenesis.
Angiogenesis is a process which involves creation of new blood vessels in the body. This process is enhanced in certain periods, for instance in newborns. In adults it activates in case of wound when tissues and capillaries need to be regenerated. The process of angiogenesis is regulated by activator and inhibitor molecules. Usually, inhibitors predominate.
However, when there are tumor cells in the body, they stimulate the activators to increase vascular cell growth for the formation of new blood vessels. Cancer cells release heir activators of angiogenesis – molecules that “cheat” the body and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels that supply the tumor to nutrients and oxygen.
