    Foods are already divine but what is the good of having these food when we eat 90% fast food and sugary food which is biggest cause of many cancers as too much consumption of these foods can cause abnormal cell growth which leads towards cancer. The info about foods are super great.

    Not just foods but seeds and nuts are also effective against several kinds of cancers. In many Asian countries people cure their early cancer and permanently treat it naturally with just black cumin seed. They eat black cumin seed 2 tbsp 3 times a day but this tip work if the cancer is on very early stage otherwise, it just slow the progression but can’t treat it properly.
