How does fiber help prevent cancer?

Fiber is the super sponge in the body. When the liver processes carcinogenic toxins out of the blood they end up in the gut. In order to completely eliminate them from the body, something in the gut must absorb them. Enter: fiber!

If you eat sugar, white rice and starchy carbs you will not be able to facilitate this absorption. No sponges will be available to bind up the toxins which will then be reabsorbed. This means they will end up in circulation all over again doubling your carcinogenic exposure. Increased fiber can intercede and help remove them properly.

Fruit is a great fiber food with raspberries and pears being at the top of the list. Or you can add whole wheat pasta, barley, bran flakes and oats to your diet. Split peas, lentils and black beans are chock full of fiber as are artichokes and broccoli. Almonds are a high fiber nut and Two tablespoons of flaxseed provide about six grams of fiber and opposed to 1/4 cup of black beans to get the same amountWomen should try to eat at least 21 to 25 grams of fiber a day, while men should aim for 30 to 38 grams a day.

To facilitate a better working liver to help process those carcinogens out, you can take a potent curcumin supplement and also use milk thistle which also helps suppress the growth of blood vessels that feed cancer tumors.

  1. This is either the first time I’ve heard about (or the first time it’s ‘registered’) that starchy carbs prevent the absorption and elimination of toxins. You are such a wealth of valuable information!!! I learn so much from you.

  2. Depends on the starchy carb… white carbs yes..
