Prevention is better than cure. This old proverb is very relevant when it comes to the dreaded disease called Cancer. The problem with cancer is that it cannot be diagnosed at an early stage in most of the cases and by the time it is diagnosed it may have already crossed the stage where treatment could be a problem. Hence, under such circumstances, it is always better to prevent this disease from taking roots in the body at all. Cancer can be prevented if the immune system is our body gets a boost and there are many antioxidants available in natural fruits and vegetables, which help a lot in fighting free radicals which are the main causes of many types of cancer.
There are various methods by which the immune system in the body can be increased which could be the first and most important step in fighting cancer. The basic thing to keep your immune system intact is to eat the right food to strengthen your immune system. Fruits and vegetables are excellent food which contributes a lot to the immune system. Fruits and vegetables are very rich in vitamins and minerals which form the backbone of any immune system. Having vitamin supplements made from natural ingredients is a good way to strengthen the immune system.
Moderate your drinking habits especially alcohol and avoid too much of fatty food and sugar. Alcohol and sugar significantly reduce the capacity of body to build its own immune system and therefore should be avoided. Sugar in fact has very little role to play in our body and the glucose which is required for our body is easily available in other food items. Alcohol taken in moderation may be good for the heart, but too much of it damages the immune system.
One the main reason why our body’s immune system gets weak is because we do not believe in moderate and regular exercise of the body. Exercise is very good not only for the heart but it also plays a big role in boosting the immune system of our body.
