list of foods that prevent or slow down cancer growth

for the Romanian version click here

Angiogenesis is a physiological process involving the growth of new capillaries, blood vessels. It is a normal and vital process in growth and development, as well as in healing. However, it is also a fundamental step in the transition of tumors from a dormant state to a malignant one.

The list above was compiled after thorough research on angiogenesis inhibitors. These inhibitors stop the growth of the capillaries in new mutated cells, often cancerous. The consumption of garlic, parsley, berries or licorice can prevent the proliferation of malignant cells.

Is true that medical studies on different forms of cancers do not show a high-efficiency of these foods (see here) but that might be because the cancer is already in place. Another reason to say: Prevention is better than cure.
