Did you know that you can actually starve cancer to death? It’s true! And if that sounds like a miserable way to treat it, I have good news. You don’t have to starve yourself to starve cancer. In fact, the opposite is true. You can actually starve cancer by feeding yourself – as long as you choose the right combinations of nutritious (and delicious!) foods.
According to research conducted at The University of Texas at Austin and published in Precision Oncology, several natural compounds in food can work together to keep prostate cancer from growing. This means that if you do have prostate cancer, the right diet can keep it from spreading and even cause tumors to shrink. If you don’t have prostate cancer, this diet can help keep you from developing it in the first place.
In fact, the researchers found that the right combination of nutrients are actually more effective against cancer than existing drugs. Even better, they don’t have toxic side effects like most drug therapies. These plant-based compounds fight cancer by reducing inflammation and by preventing cancer cells from consuming glutamine, a nutrient that they need to grow and multiply.
So what are these miracle nutrients? The researchers tested 142 compounds and identified four that seem to be particularly effective, both alone and in combination. The first is ursolic acid. You may have never heard of ursolic acid, but I bet you’ve eaten it. This waxy chemical is found in apple peels!

Other compounds included rosemary, curcumin (found in turmeric), and resveratrol. You’re probably familiar with curcumin and resveratrol’s powerful properties already. This study is a great addition to their already impressive résumés.
Because these nutrients seem to be most powerful when consumed together, you have a couple options. One is to carefully plan a few meals a week to include all of them, such as curry with a side of roasted apples seasoned with rosemary and a bowl of berries for dessert. Or you could simply take some of these nutrients in supplement form to take the guesswork out of it and ensure you’re consuming them regularly. You’ll find both rosemary and turmeric in the anti-inflammatory supplement Reduloxin. And you can take it with Advanced Resveratrol Formula to really pack an anti-cancer punch.
With these supplements, you’ll have three of the four recommended nutrients covered. Then all you have to remember is “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” (in this case, the oncologist)!
Yours for better health,
