You are correct! You are incorrect!
Which beverage is a cancer fighter?
The correct answer is green tea. A protein called catechin is produced in all tea leaves but is higher in concentration in green teas. Catechin has antioxidative properties to protect the body from free radicals. One study from China showed that drinking 3 grams of tea a day, which is about 2 cups, can reduce the progression of cancers.
Which vitamin is the best cancer fighter?
The correct answer is vitamin E. There is evidence that vitamin E can block free radicals, which can prevent normal cells from mutating into cancer cells. The recommended dose is 400 milligrams of vitamin E daily.
Which supplement is helpful in preventing prostate cancer?
The correct answer is selenium. Selenium is a mineral that has antioxidant properties like vitamin E. Selenium binds to proteins in the body to help stabilize the membranes of the cells and block them from free radicals. Selenium is usually taken as 200 micrograms daily.
Which vegetable is the best cancer-fighter?
The correct answer is tomatoes. Lycopene-rich foods contain bioflavonoids that have antioxidant activity. Antioxidants prevent cell damage from free radicals. Lycopene-rich foods include tomatoes and tomato products, watermelon, pink grapefruit, apricots, and papaya.
Which fruit is the best cancer fighter?
The correct answer is pomegranates. Pomegranate juice has activity similar to the bioflavonoids found with lycopenes. A study examined the use of pomegranate juice in men with rising prostate specific antigen (PSA) after surgery or radiation, and found that the pomegranate juice prolonged the PSA doubling time and decreased cell growth.
