What are some cancer healthy foods? Cancer healthy foods include more fruits, vegetables and grains. In northern MN and northern WI we need to get enough vitamin D. About 3,000 studies have found that higher vitamin D levels reduce the risk of cancer. Ask your physician about having your vitamin D level tested. There are different vitamin D Levels. If you are deficient in vitamin D3 it is a separate test and is sent to the Mayo Clinic. I struggled with this deficiency for years and it could not be re mediated with vitamin D2 prescriptions or over the counter D2.

What is normal vitamin D level? It should be 40-60 ng/mL for cancer prevention. Those folks with 12-15 need to do something about it. A diet rich in vitamin D is also helpful.

Eat fruits, vegetables, beans and other whole grains that are rich in antioxidants, which can help prevent cancer growth. Remember your means should be the at least like the ChooseMyPlate.gov plan.Check out what clinical trials are being done in this area and who is paying for them. www.clinicialtrials.gov. The Institute of Cancer Research (www.aircr.org) and Life Extensions (www.lifeextensions.com, www.lifeextensions.org)  has done tons of research through the years.

What is a healthy plate of food? 2/3′s veggies and or/whole grains, 1/3 lean protein such as turkey chicken or fish. Only eat red meat once a week. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s image of MyPlate recommends a healthy died of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fat free or low fat milk products and lean proteins that is low in saturated fats, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium and added sugar according to Consumer Reports. Our biggest threat in this county is obesity and diseases from obesity.
