Which Nut Fights Cancer Better?

Walnuts for Breast Cancer PreventionBy: Dr. Michael Greger, Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at the Humane Society of the United States.

In my video on nuts and breast cancer prevention, I featured data from the Harvard Nurse’s Study suggesting early nut consumption may be a viable means for breast cancer prevention. A follow-up study involving the daughters of the nurses corroborated the findings. Those eating more peanut butter, nuts, beans, lentils, soybeans or corn were found to just have a fraction of the risk for fibrocystic breast disease, which places one at higher risk of cancer, and the protective effects were found to be strongest for those most at risk, the ones with a family history of breast cancer.

A new study even found two handfuls of nuts a week may protect against pancreatic cancer, one of our most fatal malignancies. We’re not sure why they work. Nuts are described as nutritionally precious, packed with all sorts of goodies, which may explain some of the mechanisms by which nut components induce cancer cell death, and inhibit cancer growth and spread in vitro, but which nuts work the best?

In my video #1 Anticancer vegetable we learned that two classes of vegetables, the broccoli family vegetables, and the garlic family vegetables most effectively suppressed breast cancer cell growth.

Then in Which Fruit Fights Cancer Better? Cranberries and lemons took the title.

What about nuts? In terms of antioxidant content, walnuts and pecans steal the show. Twenty-five walnuts have the antioxidant equivalent of eight grams of vitamin C, that’s like the vitamin C found in a hundred oranges. Ah, but how do they do against cancer?

Here is a graph of human cancer cell proliferation versus increasing concentrations of the ten most common nuts eaten in the United States. If you drip water on these cancer cells as a control, nothing happens. They start out powering away at 100% growth and they keep powering away at 100% growth. And hazelnuts, pistachios and brazil nuts don’t do much better.

Pine nuts, cashews, and macadamias start pulling away from the pack. Almonds appear twice as protective, halving cancer cell growth at only half the dose, but these three are the winners, causing a dramatic drop in cancer proliferation at just tiny doses: walnuts and pecans, with the bronze going to peanuts. This was nuts versus human liver cancer cells, like they did in the fruit study.

They found similar results pitting nuts against human colon cancer cells, which is particularly useful, since ingested nuts would come in direct contact with colon cancer tumors in the real world, whereas for something like breast cancer, even if nuts suppressed breast cancer cell growth in a petri dish, that doesn’t necessarily mean nut consumption would suppress breast tumor growth, since the protective nut compounds might not even get absorbed into the bloodstream.

To test that you’d have to like design an experiment where you drip the blood of nut-eaters versus non-nut eaters on breast cancer, and that’s exactly what researchers a Penn State recently did. And they wanted to know what it was about nuts that was so protective, so they fed people whole walnuts, just the walnut oil, or just the walnut skins, and then over the next six hours dripped their blood on human breast cancer cells in a petri dish, and the blood of those eating walnuts suppressed the growth of human breast cancer, but just the oil or just the skin didn’t work.

These data suggest that some components of walnuts are absorbed, circulate in the blood and affect either directly or indirectly breast cancer cell proliferation.

Juicing For Breast Cancer Prevention

Juicing for Breast Cancer PreventionBy Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

Juicing Vegetables for Breast Cancer Protection
The vegan juicing diet as a complementary therapy for cancer offers lots of nutrition into the body, quickly. Loads of green veg rammed with antioxidants and enzymes help keep you healthy. If you want to assist your body to fight off infection and disease then juicing is a great way to do it. Try it, you’ll love it! You can always juice fruit too which is a little easier going, certainly to start with.

Ingredients

  • Beats
  • Beat Greens
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Strawberries
  • Ginger

Juicing In Moderation
If you do begin juicing, beware that there is such a thing as “too much juicing”. Risks of overuse of juicing include diarrhea and too much sugar consumption for diabetics. As in all things, it is important to do this in moderation. Juicing is best when paired with an overall healthy diet and should not be used in place of professional medical care.
