In our society, countless toxins exist for the purpose of growing food and keeping food fresh.
Removing those toxins from your diet is beneficial for battling cancer risk, as well as preventing a number of other chronic conditions.
According to Dr. Matthew McCurdy, board-certified radiation oncologist, eating a plant-based, whole food diet should provide you with almost all of the vitamins and minerals your body needs to fight off disease.
In fact, he advises that people stay away from taking too many isolated compounds, as in some cases, doing so may allow for more harm than good. Two supplements that Dr. McCurdy does suggest are turmeric and fish oil.
Something that Dr. McCurdy sees in his practice is that if a patient has been diagnosed with cancer or another life-threatening disease, it's easier to suggest dietary changes for both patient and family members/caregivers. However, he'd like to get to a point where everyone, whether faced with disease or not, makes these necessary changes for overall health and wellness.
Dr. McCurdy joins host Lisa Davis to share why eating a clean, plant-based, whole foods diet is key in preventing cancer and other dangerous chronic diseases.
