What can I find in my supermarket’s freezer aisle to help fight cancer?

The freezer aisle is full of healthy alternatives when fresh is not an option.  Frozen produce can provide the variety and nutrition needs for a healthy diet all year long.  Some examples are frozen blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.  Berries are full of anti-inflammatory properties to help fight chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.  Add these frozen berries to a protein smoothie or as a nice frozen treat throughout the day for added nutrition.

Here is a freezer aisle pick that can prevent cancer:

  • Edamame (soybeans) - These cancer-fighting beans contain phytoestrogens that may help prevent estrogen-driven cancers by binding to estrogen receptors. They are also good for the men of the household since evidence suggests the isoflavones found in soy products may help fight prostate cancer.
