Cancer is a disease that involves abnormal cell growth which spreads across the body. The 

proliferation of the cells may result in tumors which can be cancerous or benign. There are 

more than 100 types of cancer classified by the type of cells involved. Angiogenesis is a 

physiological process which creates blood vessels in the body. This process activates when we 

suffer an injury and the body needs rebuilt blood vessels in order to start the healing, but 

angiogenesis is related to cancer as well.

The process is regulated by inhibitors and activators – although cancer is closely related to 

inhibitors, the activators are responsible for stimulating the vascular cell growth which is 

important for angiogenesis. As the disease and process are entwined, we need to stop the 

angiogenesis in order to defeat cancer. Although it sounds hard, it’s as easy as including the 

following foods in your diet:

1. Turmeric. This health spice and its active compound curcumin can stop angiogenesis and 

prevent the development and spread of cancer. 2. Green Tea. Drinking green tea every day is 

highly beneficial. According to several studies, it has the ability to stop cancer. 3. Tomatoes. 

Tomatoes contain a compound known as lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that can 

lower the risk of cancer. According to studies, lycopene is broken down to fat, and increases in 

amount when subjected to high temperatures. This means that cooked tomatoes work best 

against cancer. 4. Blueberry And Raspberry Extract. These berries are rich in special 

phytochemicals that can prevent oxidative stress, angiogenesis and cancer. 5. Dark Chocolate. 

Dark chocolate possesses powerful anticancer properties and should be consumed on a daily 

basis. However, make sure to eat just a bit – too much of it can create other health problems.
