Day 348- Nutrition Bite

Phytochemical are the biologically active substances in plants that are responsible for giving them color, flavor, and natural disease resistance. Phytochemicals are powerful in the war against cancer and other disorders. An example is sulforaphane, a phytochemical found in broccoli, also reaches the cell. It activates the enzyme that take the carcinogens out of the cell before it can cause harm. Another phytochemical, flavonoids, keep cancer-causing hormones from latching on to the cells in the first place which are found in fruits and berries. Genistein, found in soybeans, kills tumors by preventing the formation of the capillaries needed to nourish them. Saponins, found in kidney beans, lentils, chickpeas, and soybeans, may prevent cancer cells from multiplying. The list goes on and on. So, eat your phytocehemicals and prevent cancer.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
Tonight, I went to the neighbors and ate stir fry. I loaded up on my phytochemicals. I also bought some oranges from a vendor on the side of the road. The oranges were freshly picked. They were delicious!
