Is There Such a Thing as an Anti-Cancer Diet?

Cancer deeply affects almost every corner of the United States and the world, with an estimated 1.7 million new cases of cancer diagnosed annually, according to the National Cancer Institute. With every 1.7 million cases, there is a greater ripple effect—cancer affects us all in some way or another, so finding a cure is paramount to the quality of life of all Americans. One of the ways that we can guard ourselves against this broad-spanning disease is through nutrition. But can we simply eat ourselves to a lower risk of cancer? Food is one way towards prevention, especially when a healthy, anti-cancer diet is coupled with physical activity and good lifestyle choices.

According to the American Cancer Society, food additives, preservatives, processing, irradiated foods and other nutritional concerns could have an effect on a person’s likelihood of developing cancer.  Thus, what we eat has an undisputed connection to cancer. Though we’re not entirely sure of every single food, drink or substance that causes or exacerbates the disease, we are sure of some. Building upon existing nutritional research, we have developed a Cancer Rescue Plan that helps you address nutritional deficiencies and eliminate potentially harmful foods to support a strong immune system.

What Does an Anti-Cancer Diet Look Like?

So, with the research that’s available today, what might an anti-cancer diet look like? Here’s an example of some of the fundamental foods and supplements that you can use to build your preventative cancer diet.

  • Plant-Based Foods—It’s all about staying away from meat and processed foods, opting instead for vegetables. We recommend eating a large amount of dark, leafy greens each day and limiting your fruit consumption to no more than 15 percent of your daily food intake. Some of the best greens for your anti-cancer diet are spinach, kale, collard greens and Swiss chard. Why? These foods contain carotenoids, which researchers believe are associated with a lower risk of all degenerative diseases.
  • Antioxidants—Antioxidant isn’t just a buzzword. Researchers believe that eating foods rich in antioxidants helps the body neutralize free radicals and prevent oxidative stress, which can lead to increased risk of certain types of cancer, not to mention heart disease and other serious health issues. Antioxidants are found in a variety of fruits and vegetables, including blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, strawberries, dark green vegetables, grapes and nuts. It’s also important to note that some of these antioxidants also have powerful anti-inflammatory effects which can be quite beneficial to your health.
  • Detoxifiers—Cleansing the body from toxins that may cause cancer is an important part of providing your body with the support it needs to guard against many serious health issues. We recommend adding Fiber Cleanse Powder to your cancer support diet. These powders contain 28 different herbs designed to help the body cleanse its colon and eliminate toxins.
  • Water—You won’t get far if you’re not hydrated! It’s important that you add at least 0.5 ounces of high quality liquids (purified water, vegetable juice and liquids from raw foods) per pound of body weight to your diet if you’re looking to prevent serious health issues. Adding HydroBoost to your water helps enhance hydration and support your immune system by boosting protection against free radicals and hydrating the cells.

What Not to Eat for Cancer Prevention

Now that you know what’s good to eat in your anti-cancer quest, it’s important that you don’t simply add these foods to your diet without eliminating ones that could compromise your immune system.

For the best level of immune support, minimize your consumption of animal fats and processed/refined vegetable oils and sugar, as these things can feed cancer cell growth. A good, preventative diet requires the elimination of all animal fats. The problem is that animal-based fats, like those found in dark chicken meat and lean hamburger meat, contain bad fats that have been linked to serious health issues, including heart disease and stroke.

In general, you should try to limit your consumption of trans fats and saturated fats, focusing more on unsaturated fats found in plant-based foods like nuts and avocados. Eliminating all refined carbs and limiting your fruit consumption to 15 percent or less daily are also fundamentals to building a strong, preventative diet.

    Limiting fruit consumption to 15 % per day sounds very low to me. Do you mean 15 % of calories? I eat a minimum of 1/2 an apple, 1 orange, 3/4 cup grapes and about 1/2 cup of dried fruits per day. Is that too much?

    • Melody Hord October 8, 2018

      The 15% is just a gauge. The concern is consuming excess sugar. Berries are a good choice because they are lower in sugar than other fruits.


    Am glad that you’ve been sharing with me this important info to curb any possibility of ever contracting the terrible disease called CANCER. I’ve been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colon (UC) and have been adviced to change my diet. I was used to the normal diet of everything and now am losing weight because either am missing on some vital nutrients or am suffering from attacks related to this Colitis. Can you recommend a
    diet for my case. Am in AFRICA, Kenya. Would appreciate for any help.

      Hi Rickson, Perhaps searching the testimonial section of the Hallelujah Diet website HERE may give you some information. Also, on Amazon HERE is a book by a Health Minister concerning inflammatory bowel. Hallelujah Diet cannot prescribe. They do beleive the body is capable of amazing things and that diet plays a huge roll in the self-healing of the body.

    Great information on what to eat and not eat for Cancer! I do believe the Hallelujah Diet is the way to go to help your body be as healthy as can be!

  5. Connie July 22, 2020

    I’m glad a whole-food plant based diet, exercise and other healthy lifestyle choices work together to promote good health in my body. Toxins, dehydration, lack of nutrition and stress can contribute toward a person getting cancer.
    Some people get cancer because they eat too much meat and too little vegetables. Minimizing consumption of animal fats and processed/refined vegetable oils and sugar, is important because these things can feed cancer cell growth.

  6. Connie April 8, 2022

    It is a great reminder that an anti cancer diet can be summed up as plant based foods, antioxidants, detoxifiers and water. Cancer is so prevalent in our society. It is helpful to learn how to prevent it.

  7. Thank you for doing your part to help people understand that changing the way they eat can make a huge difference when it comes to lowering their risk of many diseases. There are also many testimonies of people that have experienced amazing results in overcoming illness by eliminating animal products and highly processed foods from their diet, consuming fresh vegetable juices, and following a mostly raw, plant-based diet. It is remarkable what your body can do if you give it the proper nutrients.
