Watercress - Fight cancer with this superfood

People are always looking for the next big health breakthrough that promises to ward off thousands of diseases. There is an incalculable amount of methods out there that do just that - promise to help prevent and cure almost any disease. One disease in particular, however, has trumped most other diseases worldwide with its prevalence. This disease is known as cancer. There are many ways to go about treating cancer through the use of vitamins, critical dietary and physical activity changes, and superfoods, but what is the most effective? Watercress is emerging as a potent anti-cancer superfood, with numerous studies highlighting its benefits.

Studies have shown that eating as little as three ounces of watercress reduced the presence of breast cancer tumors in just hours after consumption. More specifically, natural plant compounds found in watercress halt a protein called Hypoxia Inducible Factor (HIF) from emitting signals that cause new blood vessels to turn into tumors. Watercress has also been found to outperform pharmaceuticals such as tamoxifen and herceptin. Watercress, however, is a natural herb that will not cause any of the harmful side effects brought upon by traditional drug use.

Not only has watercress been shown to effectively battle cancer in the short term, but it also has been proven to ward off cancer in the long term. When consumed regularly, watercress prevents the onset of cancer in the future. Watercress has also been shown to "turn off" the blood supply to tumors. In addition, daily intake of watercress also reduces DNA damage and increases cells' ability to further resist DNA damage caused by free radicals.

Having cancer can certainly be scary. Even the possibility of getting cancer makes people sweat and tremble, especially if a family member or close friend has experienced it. Cancer is currently sitting at second place for leading causes of death in the United States, right after heart disease, according to the Center for Disease Control's statistics from 2007.

Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way. Anyone has the power to change his/her life at any moment. One can choose to exercise, stop smoking, begin juicing, cleanse the body, or consume powerful superfoods like watercress; anyone can choose to prevent cancer. Through simple lifestyle changes, you can free yourself from the possibility of developing cancer. Do your research and take control now.

  1. It was the first time my granddaughter came to me and confided about her battle with oral and genital herpes and her self destructive thoughts.
    A gaping vacuum of fear and love opened inside me. I knew what it felt like for her to be in such a situation. But after hearing how someone I loved so dearly struggled I have no option but to promise her help. I wanted to help in all possible ways. I sought counsels from an old and experienced nurse whom I've known to deal on natural herbs because I believed in nature. After hearing from me she smiled and before I could say another word she replied me there's cure but natural herbs. I don't care as long as my child is cured! I shouted. She told me about a doctor in Africa who has cured people of herpes. She gave me his email ,I contacted him immediately and then ordered medicine for my child which he sent through the UPS courier to me. My daughter started medication and the next day she told me it's working and within four weeks she testified to me that she was cured! I've always believed that nature has cure for any diseases and I'm happy to tell everyone my child is cured.
    Six months later we went for another test to be sure and here is the result,
    Six months after medications;
    Her hsv1&2 test results;
    Igm - 1.49
    IgG - 0.36
    She don't have any symptoms again and has moved on happily and is now in a serious relationship with her fiancee
