Apple and Onion Soup
It’s bit weird for a soup combo, but trust me, it’s delicious, and it fights cancer like nobody’s business, it contains two of nature’s best sources of quercetin, a bioflavonoid that has super strong anti-cancer properties. Different studies have shown some cool stuff on how the consumption of both apples and onions will in fact reduce the risk of many cancers.
Tomato + Basil Soup
Not only do garlic, shallots, and basil lend their flavors to create this tasty soup, but they also offer a number of health benefits, especially for people who want to reduce their risk of cancer. Allicin, which gives garlic its distinctive odor and flavor, has been shown to slow down and prevent certain types of cancer, when consumed regularly. Population studies have also found that cultures with a high consumption of garlic (e.g. China, Japan, France) have a reduced the risk of stomach, colon, pancreatic, esophageal, and breast cancer. Shallots, on the other hand, are loaded with quercetin, a bioflavonoid that has anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties while basil is rich in flavonoids which provide antioxidant protection.
Beet and Carrot Soup
This is probably the prettiest recipe on the list… But it’s not all looks with this one… It has tons of rich nutrients, all of which help to prevent cancer. Several studies have found betacyanin, a phytochemical responsible for the deep red color of beets, to be highly effective at preventing cancer while carrots contain falcarinol, a compound that has been shown to inhibit the development of cancer.
Yup! All those grand-mamas were right… A recent lab test confirmed what so many grandmas already knew…Chicken soup is super healthy for you. The researchers found that chicken soup and its main ingredients help inhibit the migration of neutrophils — white blood cells that swallow up bacteria and viruses responsible for infectious diseases. Your neutrophil count lies somewhere between 3,000 and 6,000 neutrophils per milliliter of blood, but chemotherapy and some radiotherapy treatments can lower your neutrophil count, making you more prone to getting infections.
Nettles are super rich in awesome antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, selenium, zinc, and flavonoids. Many of these antioxidants are known to have a synergistic effect and to protect each other from oxidation, thereby enhancing the overall antioxidant prowess of this healthy soup.
Sweet Potato Soup
Sweet potato has to be one of the most nutritious (and delicious) vegetables… But to top it all off, it has one excellent ingredient for anti-cancer foods… Beta-carotene basically, the more intense and the more powerful brightness that the color of the food has, the more beta-carotene it containsmafia. In addition, sweet potatoes contain vitamin C as well as unique root proteins which, according to preliminary studies, may have significant antioxidant properties. Also garlic, onions, and curry powder contain substances that are known to possess strong anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties.
