Seems like eating just green vegetables is not enough in the fight against cancer. This new article on The Guardian has noted that researchers have found that eating certain fruits and vegetables that have a rich, bright color of red, purple or blue can act as powerful anti-cancer agents.
Vegetables such as the exotic purple corn and chokeberries have been found to be highly efficient in stopping the growth of colon cancer and even killing 20% of the colon cancer cells. Even the humble radish and black carrots have been able to slow colon cancer cells growing by about 50% to 80%.
The reason why it is so effective is because these colorful fruits and vegetables contain a class of antioxidant compounds known as anthocyanins. And the most famous of fruits that contain anthocyanins is the blueberry, which is considered one type of superfood.
So, go eat some colorful fruits and vegetables to help clear your colon.
