"Dandelion, Kale, and Turnip Greens - Amazing for Preventing Cancer"
Here is my choice of the top 3 healing greens that I always include in my diet to prevent cancer. And greens are super important for a health and vitality. And the more greens we eat daily the more alkaline we become... thus we keep away "cancer".
Organic Dandelion Greens - A Powerful Detoxing Green
The USDA says that Dandelion Greens are one of the most nutritious veggies around.
Dandelion Greens contain almost 15% protein making them great for anyone who is a vegan or just wants to add more protein to their diet. Dandelion Greens and roots are great for detoxing the liver. And our liver is our first line of defense for our immune system. And because these great greens are a good detoxing agent they help with gout, liver cirrhosis, and liver disease in general.
One Cup of Dandelion Greens contains 10% of a person's daily needs of calcium. And they also contain a good amount of phosphorus making them great for creating strong bones and teeth.
One serving of Dandelion Greens contains over 110% of our daily needs of Vitamin A which is a powerful antioxidant helping to prevent cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cancer. And Vitamin A is important to healthy mucous membranes of the GI tract, mouth, lungs, and other areas of the body and for beautiful skin.
Dandelion Greens and roots contain pectin which helps to lower cholesterol, lower trigs, helps to eliminate radioactive and heavy metals from the body and helps to detox the body in general.
Dandelion Greens are full of iron and copper making them great for those who suffer from anemia. Dandelion Greens can also lower cholesterol by as much as 50% according to studies done in Italy. Dandelion Greens are totally fat and cholesterol free.
Dandelion Greens and the Roots contain Inulin which is a great probiotic agent that helps to feed good bacteria in our gut. Thus creating a good environment for growing the 4 pounds of good bacteria we need in our gut to create a healthy immune system. Dandelion Greens and the roots also help increase urine volume thus helping with excess water weight, detoxing, edema, and helps with PMS. Dandelion Greens are just about as powerful as lasix and furosemide which are prescription diuretics.
Dandelion Greens in studies have the ability to kill cancer cells without causing harm to good cells. And that Dandelion Root tea can kill leukemia cells without harming other tissues... thus making Dandelion Tea a possible non-toxic way of healing leukemia.
A famous architect by the name of Robert Stickle who came down with skin cancer noted in his research the following: People who live as farmers in the country in Italy eat lots of Dandelion Greens and drinking Dandelion Root Coffee... and hardly ever come down with cancer. But as soon as they move to the city and stopped eating dandelion greens and drinking the coffee substitute they started coming down with cancer. Then Mr. Stickle started eating Dandelion Greens and drinking the coffee substitute in 1986 and 18 years later he's still cancer free.
Perhaps Dandelion Greens and the roots do have some protection qualities that keep us from coming down with cancer.
And new studies show that Dandelion can lower and maintain good blood glucose levels. In fact, there was one man who was 70 years old and had terrible diabetes that was out of control. He cut out sweets and carbs but still had high blood sugar. He then changed just one thing, he started drinking Dandelion Root Coffee... and his blood sugar went up and down the first week... then it dropped into the normal range and stayed there. Amazing!
Dandelion Greens and the roots are also great for inflammation, and inflammation is the first step towards creating disease.
Organic Kale - A Super Food and a Natural Vitamin
Kale is great for the body and some people call kale "The Miracle Green".
Kale is full of lots of nutrients found in green leafy veggies that will alkalize your body... and it's full of Vitamins, A (more than 500% of your RDA of Vitamin A), C (More than 200%), and B6 and K (About 700%) and also calcium, manganese, and potassium. Kale also contains iron for building up your red blood cells and preventing anemia and boosting your vitality.
Plus it has lots of lutein and zeaxathin that are great for preventing macular degeneration. And Kale boosts your immune system, promotes healthy blood clot formation, and Kale is also loaded with beta-carotene helping to prevent cancer and other diseases... and it's also anti-inflammatory too!
And Kale is part of the cabbage family... all of which contain colon cancer-preventing nutrients. And Kale boosts up your metabolism and helps you lose weight.
When juicing Kale you can add apples, carrots, beets, and even lemons to make it taste great, so you love drinking this healthy drink.
Kale one of the best greens around for great health.
Organic Turnip Greens - Super Important for Preventing Cancer
Sulfur-containing greens like turnip greens are wonderful for detoxing the body because they contain glucotropaeolin and gluconasturtiian which are both powerful phytonutrients called glucosinolates which detox the body. Turnip greens contain more calcium than any of the cruciferous veggies... making them great for building strong bones.
Turnip greens contain lots of wonderful omega 3 oils like that found in cold water fish... which are great for preventing inflammation. Turnip greens like all greens are full of wonderful Vitamin K which important for healthy blood clotting and soothe away inflammation.
Turnip greens help to prevent heart attacks, plaque build up in arteries, strokes, and other cardiovascular diseases.
Turnip greens bind with bile acids to prevent fats from being absorbed into our bloodstream in the intestines. Thus to create more bile acids cholesterol is pulled from our body thus lowering cholesterol. Cooked turnip greens are great, but steamed turnip greens retain more cholesterol binding agents. In fact, steamed turnip greens lower cholesterol as well as the prescription drug cholestyramine. – Amazing!
Turnip greens contain over 5 grams of fiber per cup and that translates into creating a good home for probiotic bacteria that boost our immune system... thus we have better health.
Also, turnip greens contain glucosinolates which may help to regulate the overgrowth of Helicobacter pylori which causes gastric ulcers.
Eating turnip greens can also help prevent cancer as with all cruciferous vegetables.
Turnip greens contain lots of powerful antioxidants such as Vitamins C, A, E, plus quercetin, isorhamnetin, kaempferol, myricetin, and hydroxycinnamic acid which strengthen our immune system... and prevent and repair DNA damage.
Turnip greens contain lots of B-Vitamins for vitality and for creating a good mood. They also contain iron and copper for anemia, phosphorus, and calcium for strong bones, manganese for enzyme production, magnesium for restful sleep and stress, potassium for water regulation and cardiovascular health.
Turnips like full sun, rich soil that is moist but not soggy, and they grow best in the spring and fall. They grow fast, they are easy to grow, they like organic natural fertilizers, and the greens are an added bonus along with the bulbs that are tasty.
If you google "Turnip Green Recipes" lots of great recipes will come up. Also, turnip greens can be used in just about any recipe that calls for any green. They are great in soups, stews, casseroles, sautéed, steamed, juiced, cooked with onions and garlic, and just about any dish you can think of... and they are very popular in southern dishes.
Turnip greens do contain oxalates so they should be cooked if you are sensitive to oxalates.
Please Eat Organic Greens - Regular greens contain up to 6 cancer-causing chemicals, 12 hormone-disrupting chemicals, and 10 other disease-causing chemicals... So Eat Organic and Stay Healthy.
