Scientific investigations into goji berry fruit revealed various anti-cancerous properties. They were tested on human cancer cells, which showed considerable control over the growth of cancer cells. Apoptosis, or the sudden death of cells, was observed for cancer cells when goji berry extracts were administered.
Lettuce (Except Iceberg)
Lettuce leaf can control certain type of cancer. Research on human cancer cells, particularly leukemia cells and breast cancer cells, were controlled to a significant extent after being treated with lettuce extracts. The experiments also suggested that the weight ratio of human lettuce consumption required to kill 50% of leukemia cells would be 6.6 pounds.
Recent studies concluded that cucumbers contain powerful lignans that contribute to reducing risk of several cancers, including breast, uterus, ovarian, and prostate cancers. Phytonutrients in cucumbers called cucurbitacins are known to strongly prevent cancer cell from developing in the body. In one study, cucumber extracts were found to provide phytonutrients that have free radical scavenging and analgesic activities, ultimately sweeping the body of toxins that cause cancer.
