Hi! I'm Stelios Pantazis. I'm a doctor and I specialize in medical nutrition and metabolic disorders. Today, I'm presenting the fruits that beat cancer. In a previous video, I've presented the vegetables with the strongest anticancer effect. Today, I'm presenting the fruits with the strongest anticancer effect, based on a study similar to the one I presented there. As I've said in the previous video, we take 50 g of the edible part of the fruit, we make an extract and we put it inside some bottles where we've cultured some cancer cells. Then, we measure the percentage of the cancer cells that have been destroyed and at what extract concentration. Based on this, we make a table with the percentage of cancer cells that survive the exposure to the extract on the left, and the amount of fruit that is needed proportionately to achieve this on the right horizontal axis. You can find the link to the study in the description, if you want to delve into it. Again, I've divided the graph into four tables, dividing the fruits studied by the researchers into four groups according to their anticancer effect. As in the previous video, the researchers selected the fruits that are most consumed in the USA, which were 11 in this case. The first graph show the fruits with the weakest or even insignificant anticancer effect in any amount tested. These fruits are pineapple, pear, orange and peach. Like you, I was disappointed to see that orange has such a week anticancer effect, which is practically insignificant in this case, even in relatively large amounts. However, the other citrus fruits, as we'll see later, did better. The next graph shows the fruits with a moderate anticancer effect, which are banana and grapefruit. I must admit that I hadn't expected that banana would have the same anticancer effect as grapefruit. But this is why studies are carried out, to show exactly what's true, so that we don't have to make it up. The third graph shows which fruits have a strong anticancer effect, namely they significantly decrease the development of cancer cells, even in relatively small amounts. This group includes red grapes, strawberries and apples. All three fruits happen to have the same color, although in general we know that vivid colors in fruits and vegetables indicate a higher content in substances that are good for our body. However, I imagine that the same applies for green apples, although not red. Namely, their content in anticancer substances is rather high. Finally, the fourth graph shows the champions with the strongest anticancer effect among the fruits evaluated by the study, which are lemons and cranberries. It is widely known that lemons have a very strong anticancer effect and can be daily included in our diet, since many foods taste great with lemon. This is really useful for people avoiding large quantities of fruits for any reason, because they can benefit from lemons' anticancer effect without the calories and sugar of fruits. On the other hand, cranberries belong to a family of fruits that we traditionally know are very healthy. The same category includes raspberries, blueberries, chokeberries and huckleberries, which are known to be really rich in antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer substances. So, these are the fruits with the strongest anticancer effect, and you'd better include them in your daily diet. It would be really interesting to see other fruits too, but unfortunately this study examined only these ones and these are the ones it published. If you haven't watched the video with the vegetables that have an anticancer effect, it's worth watching. I've also made a video with the dried nuts that have an anticancer effect, which you'll watch soon. If you thought this was interesting, please give us a thumbs up.
