Healthy Snacks For Cancer Patients

Strawberries and Raspberries

Strawberries and raspberries are a great source of ellagic acid, which has been shown to help destroy cancer-causing chemicals.

Berries

In addition to being so delicious, berries are filled with Vitamin C and antioxidants, which actively fight against the growth of tumors found in patients with lung, colon, breast, and prostate cancer.

Kale Chips

Kale is an excellent source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant shown to reduce the risk of cancer. If vegetables aren’t your thing, try kale chips for tasty and crunchy snack.

Fruits: Watermelon, Guava, and Mango

Watermelon, guava, and mango are an excellent source of lycopene which, according to the NIH, has potent antitumor effects. Blend them all together for a delicious smoothie

Dark Chocolate

Studies have shown that dark chocolate containing more than 70 percent cacao is filled with compounds that help to slow the growth and spreading of cancer cells.

Granola

Granola is made from whole oats, which contain fiber, B vitamins, and phytochemicals that work together to keep your cells healthy and cancer free. If you’re cutting back on sugar, try using stevia to sweeten your bowl.

Seaweed Chips

According to a study by the Nagoya University School of Medicine in Japan, seaweed may have strong suppressive effects on cancer when consumed in large amounts. Try a mekabu salad or pack some seaweed chips if you’re on the run.
