Posted on 3/30/2019 by Dr. J. Derek Tieken
Eating healthy foods does a lot of good for your entire body. However, it can also do a lot of good in the first place the food hits your body – your mouth. If you worry that someday you could develop oral cancer, such as if there is a history of it in your family, you may want to consider the foods you eat. There are many foods out there that can give you a boost in your body's ability to fight off cancer cells. Here are some of the strongest to make sure you are eating regularly.
Cancer Fighting Foods You Should Make Sure to Eat on a Regular Basis
Onions are known for many things, including bad breath. However, they are also good at helping fight off pre-cancerous cells in your body. Eating them on a daily basis can help rid your body of some of these cells that could someday change themselves into cancer cells.
Many fruits are really good at fighting off cancer cells. You should make sure that you are regularly eating berries, as they are good for your teeth and good at fighting off cancer cells. You also need to include apples and oranges in that mix. They both work when it comes to helping to flood your body with anti-cancer chemicals.
All types of greens are great for your body. They give you the fiber your teeth need to stay cleaner and healthier. Plus, they are packed full of vitamins that are difficult to get elsewhere. The more of them you eat, the healthier your entire body will be, including your mouth.
When you want to give your body the best possible chances of staying cancer free, then you need to make sure your diet reflects that goal. Eating these foods will help, as will coming in to our office for regular oral-cancer screenings. Call us today to find out more!
