6. Sea Vegetables:
Some of the best cancer-fighting foods come to us from the sea. Kombu, arame, nori, and wakame are just a few of the vegetables that have a powerful effect on cancer. They are loaded with healthy minerals that most Americans do not get enough of, including calcium, iron, and magnesium. They are also a great source of bio available iodine. Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation are both factors for the development of certain types of cancer, and sea vegetables are known to fight inflammation and contain a great many antioxidants, which counter the effects of oxidative stress.
