It is widely believed in the medical field that cancer comes from carcinogens as well as inflammation. Throw is a possible genetic predisposition and you may be in trouble. The DNA part may be out of your control but eating well and avoiding carcinogens are.

There are a select group of foods that have anti-inflammatory effects when ingested by human beings. In this blog I want to go over some of these items and even include a smoothie recipe you can make yourself.

  1. Berries – Many berries posses a natural anti-inflammatory healing benefit. Berries known for these benefit are blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Luckily all of these make for delicious smoothies.
  2. Broccoli – This vegetable staple is known to be very good for keeping internal inflammation at bay. You can east broccoli by itself or blend it into a veggie smoothie.
  3. Turmeric – This additive is a spice commonly found in Indian foods.  Some people take this supplement in pill form but you can buy turmeric powder and add it to your food or drink.
  4. Ginger – A widely known root herb, it is used in everything from soda drinks to putting it on a sushi roll. It has anti-inflammatory properties and also may help with arthritis.
