The Best Scientifically Proven Anti-Cancer Salad! Dr Michael Greger

According to Dr Joel Fuhrman eating one large
salad a day can quote “literally change your life and make a huge difference in your overall health”. Eating raw vegetables aids our digestive system,
by providing lots of fiber and nourishes our body with phytochemicals and micronutrients
that strengthen our immune system and help to fight cancer. A salad with the right ingredients can be
an extremely powerful way to prevent and even help reverse cancer. So what vegetables should we be including
to create the most powerful anti cancer salad, is there any science to back this all up and
what’s wrong with these salads? Well this astonishing study is the foundation
for this video so let’s hear as Dr Michael Greger tells us more. The link to the original video is in the description
below…A landmark study was published, pitting 34 common vegetables against eight different
types of human cancers. Breast cancer, brain tumors, kidney cancer,
lung cancer, childhood brain tumors, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, and stomach cancer. What’s being measured is tumor cell proliferation. Here’s the control. You drip some water on a human breast tumor,
and nothing happens; it’s still powering away at 100% growth rate. And these seven vegetables appear useless
against breast cancer. But these six cut the cancer growth rate in
half. And these five at the end stopped cancer growth
completely; stopped these tumor cells dead in their tracks. So using this groundbreaking data, imagine
you’re standing in line at one of those custom made-to-order salad places, where you
get to choose your lettuce, choose your toppings, then choose your dressing. First, let’s choose our lettuce. Boston, endive, radicchio, romaine, or spinach? Which is healthier? Out of the five, spinach is #1 against breast
cancer—remember, the farther down, the better it is at slowing down these cancer cells. #1 against brain tumors, #1 against kidney
cancer, #1 against lung cancer, and pediatric brain tumors. #1 against pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer,
and stomach cancer. Now it’s not #1 overall; there are 16 vegetables
more powerful at stopping stomach cancer growth than spinach. But out of those five salad greens, spinach
wins out across the board, against every cancer type tested. Yes or no? Do carrots slow down cancer cell growth rates
more than 50%? The answer is no. No, no, no, no, no, no, and no. So, shredded carrots aren’t going to make
our top toppings choice. What about shredded beets? Yes or no? Yes. Super yes! Kidney cancer is a no; close to 50%, but not
quite there. But then yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. So, overall, yes for beets. Are we putting cucumber on our salad? As tasty as they may be, no. For most cancers it suppressed tumor cell
growth less than 50%. What about tomatoes? No tomatoes, either. One of the most important findings of the
year. Which vegetable was it? #1 against breast cancer? Garlic. #1 against brain tumors? Garlic.#2 against kidney cancer: Garlic. Lung cancer? Garlic. Childhood brain tumors? Garlic. Pancreatic cancer? Garlic. Prostate cancer and stomach cancer? Garlic. So might I suggest a garlicky salad dressing? The two best families of vegetables for cancer
prevention are the cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, kale, cabbage, and the allium
family vegetables—like garlic, onions, and leeks. Let me just run through this one last time
to highlight this important concept. Starting from the beginning. Cruciferous vegetables in green; allium family
vegetables in yellow. So what I want you to notice is the clustering
of colors over to the right side, which illustrates the power of these two superfood classes of
vegetables—whether for breast cancer, brain cancer, kidney cancer, lung cancer, or brain
cancer. The final step: the dressing. Which is more nutritious: a salad with an
oil-free dressing, or salad with an oil-based dressing? And the answer is: not fat-free, but fat-filled. Because many of the phytonutrients in salad
are fat soluble, and so our body needs fat to absorb them. The bioavailability of nutrients is higher
when you take in fat. Now oil isn’t good for you. Just five walnut halves is all the fat you
need to get at those fat-soluble nutrients in our greens. Ok so let’s put together this potent cancer
fighting salad. using as much organic vegetables as we can let’s start with a handful of
spinach, some shredded beetroot, a few florets of broccoli, perhaps a bit of thinly sliced
red cabbage, chopped green onion, some red bell pepper just to make it look pretty and
then a raw tahini, lemon and garlic dressing to finish. When preparing garlic, it is best to let it
sit for 5-10 minutes after slicing, chopping or mincing. This is because garlic contains two enzymes
(alliin and alliinase) that are separated when the garlic clove is whole. When the cells are ruptured (through cutting,
chopping, etc.) these two enzymes interact to form a new compound called allicin which
has cardiovascular, antibacterial, and anti-cancer benefits. Some garlicky dressing recipe ideas are in
the description below. To boost this dressing further you could add
some oregano and a pinch of cayenne pepper.

  1. Thank you for making this video. Full of good solid information. The best food choices channel on Youtube.The simpler the better.

  2. Why not add some turmeric or ginger? And broccoli sprouts contain far more nutrients than the florettes plus adding freshly ground black pepper to any of these which makes them synergistically far more potent.

  3. That's all well and good, but it's also confusing because in another video he warns against eating spinach because of it's extremely high oxalate content:

  4. Carrots don't cure cancer? Ask Chris Wark (Chris Beat Cancer), and many other people, including many Gerson patients who recovered successfully with juice. Also, Dr Barnard said 2 carrots a day can stop cancer. This is actually in your video "2 Carrots A Day Stops Cancer? Dr Neal Barnard":
    Regarding tomatoes, Dr. Greger contradicts himself. There was a video where he proved the amazing benefits of tomato sauce for prostate cancer.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing the easy salad dressing recipes! They are so simple and easy that I have everything I need to make these!

  6. We can live a lot longer and healthier by staying away from the corrupt industries food that pumps the idea into us that meat and dairy is safe to consume. Humanity needs to wake up to actual truth, it's our own salvation

  7. Thanks for reiterating the foundation of what our salads should be. We can also add any others we choose after the powerful foundation! Excellent presentation! โœจโœจโœจโœจโœจ

  8. Vegetables are nutritious when grown in soil containing magnesium as well as the potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen without which they can't grow.

  9. I know people who eat organic all their lives but still get cancer. Let's face it, our water, air n soil are polluted from all nuclear tests, accidents n pesticides. But I still applaud making effort to eat the way we were meant to! Love these ingredients for salad. Very informative.

  10. This video was well done and I love the graphics and the lady talking sounds nice, thank you for sharing this information about food ๐Ÿ™‚ God bless you all

  12. GARLIC is number one. ONIONs and GREENS. Great video to learn the truth. Let us try to fix this ourselves. The solution is on your plate.

  13. I have always rubbed my salad bowl with fresh, crushed garlic before adding the greens, etc. It lends a wonderful flavor and apparently also helps fight cancer! Avocado is another great fat source to add to your salad, as are seeds — sunflower, pumpkin, etc., which do double duty by adding protein. Opt for raw and organic whenever possible. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. There is so much rubbish advice on line : one thing contradicting another but this is first thing I have come across that is practical and revealing and truly helpful . The normal voiceover rather than the usual robot is appreciated too

  15. Brussels sprouts and cauliflower coming out on top for the cruciferous family – but does this mean I am suppose to eat them raw or cook them, before adding to a salad? (not trolling, a serious question)

  16. Thanks, Doctor Greger and the researching team, all of whom make this vital information possible to all of us who would suffer terribly due to ignorance and a culture that constantly seek to make us less than who we are by promoting Allopathic Doctors and Pharmaceutical products and Politicians that get elected to pimp us along with many LIES. Thanks again all you Brave and courageous truth seekers and mankind helpers. God Bless.

  17. It is great. could you please do a video on ovarian cancer. I am not finding much information on ovarian cancer. I watch your videos every single day. Thank you so much for all the information.

  18. Get 'em into you ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’š
    Carrots, celery, asparagus, jalapeรฑo, spinach, bok choy, red cabbage, onion, kale, radish, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts, leeks!

  19. where is the study that vegans live longer and healthier and that any all-cause mortality benefit is because of veganism? what various chemicals do in a petri dish is nothing more than micro-arguing a political point.

  20. Great video! I know natural is always best, but garlic really does leak out of my pores. Can I take a supplement does anyone know?

  21. The study cited in the video suggests some foods reduce cancer cell proliferation. Is is possible to say that these foods might also PREVENT cancer in the first place, or is that a stretch? Is there good scientific evidence to show that certain foods prevent cancer?

  22. Problem is, that if the studies were in vitro.. they are kinda meaningless.
    Most of the antioxidants will never reach the cancer cells, are most are simply not even absorbed.
    I would really hope Dr Greger would do a video about what antioxidants are actually absorbed.

  23. Great information, I have learnt something new. I noticed that it is not mentioned extra virgin olive oil as a healthy fat to add to the salads. That is what I use and also nuts (pumpkin seeds, walnuts, hemp seeds or sunflower seeds etc). I also use avocados or olives. Is there any reason why the extra virgin olive oil is not mentioned?

  24. Thanks for the information. I am one of six children who has not had cancer. I eat salad almost everyday. I will add garlic, broccoli and onions thanks to this video.

  25. Thanks for posting.

    Can I just point out a confusing part of your video? I am only seeking clarification, not criticising.
    Dr Gregor at one point contradicts himself. He says, and I quote: โ€œwhich is better, a fat free dressing or fat filled?โ€ He then gies on to say that fat filled is better, and your picture shows OIL DRESSINGS. However, the audio has Dr Gregor saying โ€œoil is bad for youโ€

    Can you clarify whether an oil based garlic dressing is good or bad : for example, olive oil. Thank you.

  26. Very surprised that mushrooms were not mentioned for their anti-cancer benefits. I would include mushrooms and incorporate miso paste into the dressing for added saltiness without the consequences of table salt. Great job on the video!

  27. LMAO – nothing about this is scientifically proven as there is no scientific proof that vegetables do anything for human health.

  28. Questions: Is this as good for someone in their seventies?
    Garlic or onions or garlic and onions?
    Would it be the same if they were whizzed up into a raw smoothy?
    Would it be the same if they were cooked as a soup?

  29. Fine grate or press the garlic and add to the dressing, chopping is inferior, takes too long, and means you have to chew the finely chopped garlic, which most do not.

  30. Yes, this anti-cancer salad is great but the plant based diet is too high in carbohydrates. Fruits and juices will raise your blood sugar, then raise your insulin level, which causes weight gain, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The ketogenic diet is best for people over 40 and for those overweight.

  31. Are we to understand that olive oil and other cold pressed oils are basically to be replaced with walnut halves ?

    What a sad day to need to use no good oils in our dressings for

    Broccoli salads!

  32. Is organic cooked beets ok dr greger? And what it you have fructose intolerance ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ garlic and onion are an issue? Can I have a small amount?

  33. Yes, all this salad, my kydneys use to hurt me so much, a lot of bloating going on. My colon use to hurt me, I also got a stomach alzer . I quitt eating all this rabbit food so rhat U feel so much better.

  34. So, GARLIC is the king. We should change thinking about garlic as a bad smell, we should warship the GARLIC as it is so much for the human health benefits.

  35. wonder what testing protocols were used…..are they testing extract from the veggies and putting them in petri dish with cancer cells? or do they subject the extract to the same acid in the stomach first (thereby resulting what is bioavailable to the body)…..

  36. Dear Ma'm,

    Thank you for this very important info as I had a heart attack 4 years ago but until now I have only been using Vitamin C and Lysine 2000mg of each every 8 hours. as that is the antidote for heart disease according .

  37. Thank you for uploading this video I have one question how much garlic per day is good for you , how much is too much and is there a garlic side effect Thank you
