Can we eat to starve cancer? According to cancer researcher, William Li, the answer is yes. Angiogenesis is “the growth of new capillary blood vessels in the body” and its abnormal growth is at the root of many illnesses, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, stroke and heart disease. Certain foods can help prevent this, such as berries, cocoa, cucumbers, red wine, turmeric, and garlic — which should be a part of your daily ingredients already.
Another finding was that abnormal capillary growth aides obesity, because fat depends in it. For a healthy angiogenic and delicious summer dessert, try my berry salad.
