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.
