Cancer and plant based foods.
According to Trygve Tollefsbol, Ph.D, a professor of molecular biology at the University of Alabama and coauthor of a new scientific review of the food-cancer connection published in Clinical Epigenetics the bioactive components in grapes, tomatoes, tofu, broccoliion published in, parsley, garlic, turmeric and green tea can actually turn on the genes that suppress tumors while silencing those that promote their growth. He states that “we now know that more than half of all cases are triggered by changes in gene activity, not structure - and that certain foods can affect that activity in a certain way…..eating a combination of these foods on a regular basis can go a long way toward preventing cancer.”
With all the benefits of plant based foods, if you want superior health and athletic performance, there really is no room left for any animal based foods.
