These graphs show the ability of vegetable extracts to suppress tumor growth in eight different cancer types. The vegetables at the bottom of each graph represent those vegetables best at suppressing cancer growth. Even though garlic is the number one anticancer vegetable, other vegetables from the allium family (onions and leeks) are also powerful cancer-fighters. In fact, leeks are number one against kidney cancer. For even more cancer-fighting power serve this soup with some cruciferous vegetables such as steamed Brussels sprouts or kale. For a more thorough explanation, check out Dr. Greger’s short video: #1 Anticancer Vegetable
- 4 cups water/homemade vegetable broth
- 9 potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 leek, thinly sliced
- 1-2 tbsp fresh rosemary
Place all ingredients in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Turn off heat but leave pot on hot burner. Once potatoes are soft, mash some against the side of the pot with a fork until soup thickens to desired consistency.
