Beans and cancer-fighting properties..

Beans and cancer-fighting properties,this link was established years ago from a research using data from 41 countries, researchers found that eating beans reduced incidence of death from breast, prostate, and colon cancer. As the years have gone by, more and more studies have linked bean eating with reduced risk for many other types of cancer. This compound inositol hexaphosphate, or IP6 for short, it’s powerful cancer fighting and found in abundance in beans,also beans contains inositol pentakisphosphate (IP10) which is so powerful that it inhibit the growth of tumors in mice. Beans and all the legumes have anti-aging properties because of their high antioxidant levels. Beans such as Pinto, kidney, and red fill three of the four top slots for overall best antioxidant protection, beating out other fruits and vegetables, according to studies. The study showed that color is key and the darker and more intense the color, the greater the antioxidant protection it confers on consumers. Recent data from the Nurses Health Study II, among the largest and longest running investigations of factors influencing women’s health, was evaluated to see which flavonol-rich foods were protective of breast tissue in pre-menopausal women age 26 to 46. Researchers found that among the major food groups tested, beans and lentils were most protective, while tea, onions, apples, string beans, broccoli, green pepper and blueberries showed no ability to provide protection. Beans and other legumes are a food staple in many regions of the world, where they are consumed quite frequently and in large quantities to provide low glycemic energy, protein and fiber. Almost across the board, incidence of breast cancer is significantly lower in these regions. Plant-based fiber-rich foods such as beans and legumes have a positive effect on renal (kidney) carcinoma and the chronic conditions associated with it, according to recent research. Significantly lowered risk of renal cell carcinoma was observed in those eating beans and other high fiber foods. People eating dried beans, other legumes, and bean soup show a significantly reduced risk of colon cancer. Data from the Polyp Prevention Trial indicated that eating more beans provides strong protection against recurrence of colon polyps. A study found that people who once had colon cancer were able to reduce their risk of recurrence by 45 percent by frequent bean eating.
