In your fight against cancer, healthy food is a powerful weapon in your arsenal.  What you eat has the potential to actively affect your health. While some foods strengthen your body and boost your immune system, there are others which have been shown to increase the risk of cancer. Dr. Sachin Gupta, Senior Consultant, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Mohali, lists certain items that you should add to your diet in order to stay healthy, energized, and free from cancer.

Leafy Green Vegetables

Leafy green vegetables, such as palak, are the foundation of any healthy diet since they contain significant amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. By including more palak in your meals, you can drastically increase your nutrient intake. Researchers have also shown that certain minerals present in palak and other leafy green vegetables, can help to detox your body on a cellular level.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Broccoli, Cauliflower and cabbage are classified as cruciferous vegetables. All of these contain high amounts of nutrients and antioxidants. These vegetables are some of the best Vitamin C foods commonly available. They are also rich in glutathione, a natural antioxidant that is commonly known as the body’s “master antioxidant”.


Juicy, delicious, and bursting with antioxidants, berries are one of the best foods in your fight against cancer. Blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, and strawberries, have all been shown to exhibit beneficial effects against cancers by the American Institute for Cancer Research. All berries contain a substance commonly known as anthocyanins which are responsible for their bright colours. This substance is a strong antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit cancer growth.


Drink plenty of water; it’s essential for your body to effectively fight cancer. Water stimulates the immune system, removes toxins from the body, and helps to transport nutrients to your organs.

Eating healthy food is not the end of the solution. There are many other fronts on which you must fight against cancer. Whether it’s exercising regularly or cutting tobacco out of your daily routine, every positive change in your lifestyle decreases your chances of contracting cancer. Check out the best cancer specialist hospital in delhi.
