Today I came across an infographic about superfoods that can prevent cancer and I wondered if any foods mentioned in the Bible have cancer fighting properties.
A quick search found the Beliefnet article The 7 Super Foods of the Bible based on a list of foods mentioned in the Old Testament.
"For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing out in the valleys and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey " Deuteronomy 8:7-8 ESV
Wheat has been accused of causing cancer but a trip to Google finds that each of the other foods listed have cancer fighting properties.
Here are some examples:
- Pomegranate may inhibit metastatic breast cancer
- How to Use the Fig Fruit to Prevent Cancer, Cure Sore Throats, and More
- Honey is Anti-Cancer!
Here's the Best of You infographic about superfoods that kill cancer.
