Carrots Cancer Prevention

Carrots can assist in a holistic cancer treatment. Carrots will not cure cancer alone but in combination with other herbs, juices and therapies, carrots will boost cancer treatment effectiveness.

The Cancer Cure Foundation touts carrots as part of a healthy diet that wards off cancer. “Carrots contain a lot of beta carotene,” says the Foundation, “which may help reduce a wide range of cancers including lung, mouth, throat, stomach, intestine, bladder, prostate, and breast.”

Carrot juice can stave off breast cancer as well as skin cancer due to the amount of beta carotene it has. Primarily beta carotene is an antioxidant and it eliminates free radicals totally from the body. It also takes care of preventing the cell degeneration which happens in our body. Consequently it also prevents the aging process. Apart from this, because of anti carcinogen properties in carrot juice, cancer is prevented.

The Cancer Cure Foundation points out that it’s not just beta carotene that helps tackle disease: “…a substance called falcarinol that is found in carrots has been found to reduce the risk of cancer, according to researchers at Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences (DIAS). Kirsten Brandt, head of the research department, explained that isolated cancer cells grow more slowly when exposed to falcarinol. This substance is a polyacethylen, however, so it is important not to cook the carrots.” However, the loss of nutrients can be minimized if the carrots are steamed.

In research studies, rats fed either raw carrots or even just falcarinol — an antioxidant extracted from carrots — demonstrated a delay in the growth of colon tumors. This research is certainly preliminary because rat physiology isn’t the same as that of a human, but it shows one possible health benefit of carrots.

Eating a diet rich in antioxidants like beta carotene and falcarinol may help to reduce your risk of cancer by preventing damage to the healthy cells of your body.
