Watercress Shown to Destroy Cancer Cells, Study Indicates

Researchers at Ulster University conducted a study which was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that indicates cancer damage to white blood cells was significantly reduced by eating 85 grams of watercress per day. The watercress also increased levels of cancer-fighting antioxidants in the body.

The study consisted of 30 men and 30 women that were each fed 85 grams of watercress per day along with whatever their regular diets consisted of. The participants were between the ages of 19 and 35, and half of them were smokers.

According to the results of the study, damage to white blood cells decreased by 22.9 percent in those with cancer.

During the course of the study, antioxidant levels in the blood also increased significantly particularly in the smokers.

The study has taken a little flack from other scientists for its small sample size. They also had different opinions about claims that watercress provides a greater anti-cancer benefit than other fruits and vegetables.

Frank Mangano’s commentary:

Here’s what you need to remember folks. Aside from watercress, there are many other foods that also have potent anti-cancer properties. These include garlic, onions, broccoli, almonds, blueberries and raw sprouts. Combining all these super foods together brings a better anti-cancer benefit than eating them alone.

But none the less, watercress’ ability to combat cancer should not go unnoticed. Knowledge is power my friends. The more we know about how to heal & protect ourselves naturally, the less we need prescription mediations that can put our health at risk.

Watercress is rich in beta-carotene and vitamins A, B1, B6, C, E & K. It also contains iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc and quercetin.

The phytonutrients in watercress enhance the body’s defenses against cancer and make it another great addition to an anti-cancer regimen, which should include raw celery juice, spirulina and chlorella, supplements like zinc, selenium and reishi mushrooms, and herbs like cat’s claw.
