Some fruits and vegetables provide anti-carcinogenic glucosinolates (cancer fighters). When incorporated into the diet, they may improve general health, reduce free radicals in the body and blood stream as well as strengthen the systems in the body. While they are not a cure for cancer, there is anecdotal evidence to suggest some anti-cancer fruits and vegetables can be blended and consumed for a reduced risk of some cancers.
When starting a dietary program, it is always best to speak with a health care professional before making any changes to your diet or exercise routine. He or she can determine the best combination of juices and supplements that should be taken based on your health, gender, age and general health. While fruits and vegetables are not harmful, many contain high levels of sugar that may raise the level of insulin in the blood. Also, persons undergoing chemotherapy may experience increased nausea and should consult a physician to determine if the following anti-cancer juice recipes can be used as a meal replacement or is suitable for use as a dietary supplement.
