Combining Foods Offers Greater Cancer Protection

Many studies have touted broccoli and tomatoes as cancer fighters. But new research suggests that combining the two may be more effective. Rats eating a combination of broccoli and tomatoes had a lower rate of tumor growth than rats eating broccoli or tomatoes separately. It appears that the two foods bring out the best in each other, and maximize the cancer-fighting effect of the nutrients they contain. This study explains why taking supplements is far less effective than getting your nutrients from food. Isolated compounds simply cannot produce the same results as whole foods and possibly even certain whole foods combined. An easy way to combine your vegetables is with vegetable juicing.
