Anti-Angiogenesis – A Break for Cancer Prevention

We all have abnormal cancer cells in our bodies. Most of these micro-tumors are dormant.

Cancer can not grow larger than the size of the tip of a ball point pen without first developing a network of blood vessels.

If we can prevent abnormal cells from forming a network of blood vessels, we can render them harmless.Researchers are developing drugs designed to stop blood vessel growth (called angiogenesis). These drugs have had some success; however, they come with serious side effects.

Research has demonstrated that fruits, vegetables, mushrooms and some legumes have anti-angiogenesis compounds within them that may prove to be powerful cancer preventatives

Certain supplements may help to further concentrate food-based anti-angiogenensis compounds in the body
