6 of the Best Cancer Fighting Foods

5. Berries

Researchers have identified berries as potentially important foods in preventing cancer.[7][8]

Ellagic acid, a polyphenol found principally in strawberries and raspberries is the phytochemical compound associated with berries most likely to prevent cancer.[9]

Research indicates that ellagic acid prevents carcinogenic substance activation into cellular toxins. The cells’ capacity to defend themselves against toxic aggression could also be increased by ellagic acid.
