What are you going to have for diner: Eating to Starve Cancer

When reading through my emails I came across a link to this TED talk by William Li of the Angiogenesis foundation.

In short and as describe on the website:

Angiogenesis, the growth of new capillary blood vessels in the body, is an important natural process in the body used for healing and reproduction. The body controls angiogenesis by producing a precise balance of growth and inhibitory factors in healthy tissues.When this balance is disturbed, the result is either too much or too little angiogenesis. Abnormal blood vessel growth, either excessive or insufficient, is now recognized as a “common denominator” underlying many deadly and debilitating conditions, including cancer, skin diseases, age-related blindness, diabetic ulcers, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and many others. The list of diseases that have angiogenesis as an underlying mechanism grows longer every year.

From the talk it further transpires that besides angiogenesis based medicine, our diet may well be an important factor in the prevention of many life threatening diseases.

Furthermore a list of products was identified on the TED blog of antiangiogenic products. Now have a look and don’t you agree that this makes a good list of tasty meal ingredients?

With this in mind? What are you going to have for diner tonight. I for one will stop complaining about the excessive use of tomato sauce of my boys and will add a little extra garlic to whatever’s for diner tonight.
