16 Fresh Foods That May Help Prevent Cancer In Dogs

#5 – Blueberries  

Blueberries help to starve tumor cells and contain an antioxidant compound called ellagic acid, which blocks metabolic pathways that can lead to cancer. Berries are also rich in anthocyanins which reduce cell proliferation and inhibit tumor formation.

#6 – Broccoli  

Broccoli sprouts have been found to have 30x (or more) of cancer fighting compounds than mature broccoli.

Broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage contain glucosinolates, the sulfur-containing chemicals that help to eliminate potential carcinogens from the body. They act in ways that prevent normal cells from being transformed into cancerous cells.

#7 – Cauliflower

Cauliflower also contains glucosinolates, plus the sulforaphane in cauliflower helps the liver produce anticarcinogenic enzymes.

#8 – Cherries (tart, dried, sweetened)    

Cherries are another antiangiogenic food that blocks the formation of new blood vessels from existing blood vessels. As you may recall from reading about apples, antiangiogenic foods starve tumor cells.
