The nutrients in food enable the cells in our bodies to perform their necessary functions.

This quote from a popular textbook describes how the nutrients in food are essential for our physical functioning.

“Nutrients are the nourishing substances in food that are essential for the growth, development and maintenance of body functions. Essential meaning that if a nutrient is not present, aspects of function and therefore human health decline.

When nutrient intake does not regularly meet the nutrient needs dictated by the cell activity, the metabolic processes slow down or even stop.”

– Perspectives in Nutrition, Wardlow and Insel

In other words, nutrients give our bodies instructions about how to function. In this sense, food can be seen as a source of “information” for the body. See examples in Food As Information.

Thinking about food in this way gives us a view of nutrition that goes beyond calories or grams, good foods or bad foods. This view leads us to focus on foods we should include rather than foods to exclude.

Instead of viewing food as the enemy, we look to food as a way to create health and reduce disease by helping the body maintain function.

Having a therapeutic effect on cancer food

Food

A recent study in Germany found that garlic for malignant cells in terms of a “poison” that can play with the same chemotherapy drugs to kill cancer cells. It can also be used as an immune response modifier, to Qiu was now commonly used in cancer Interleukin as stimulating the body’s normal immune response against the tumor. In vitro laboratory tests, garlic can activate Hao giant cells, T lymphocytes, thereby enhancing the immune activity, to kill cancer cells. Garlic can also serve as a natural “antibiotic”, including killing such as H. pylori, including a variety of fine seedlings, and these bacteria are considered closely related to the incidence of colon and stomach cancer 1 although some mechanisms in humans also need further confirmed, but Pat enough for us to see hope.

Carotene is another therapeutic effects of food components, it can also stimulate the body’s normal immune response to kill cancer cells, can also inhibit malignant squamous cell lung cancer cell proliferation zo inhibit tumor cells release free group of destructive power. P- carotene is converted by the human metabolism into play more than a resin-like effect of the acid, which has been widely used in the United States, scientists have synthesized the treatment of hematologic malignancies and bladder cancer chemotherapy, and has made great success.

   Wheat and cabbage can also be used to treat cancer. Known high estrogen levels leading to an important reason for women suffering from breast cancer, and the effect of estrogen against the equally important after breast cancer has been formed, it has already started in many countries as one of the principles of treatment of breast cancer. Wheat (especially unprocessed whole wheat) and Beijing cabbage there promoting estrogen metabolic breakdown, thereby reducing the effect of estrogen levels scribe, so breast cancer patients to eat these foods is undoubtedly useful.

Fish, especially fatty fish which inhibit cancer metastasis. According to a Harvard study confirmed that fish fat can decrease breast cancer metastasis to other swollen collapse seems effective. Fish fat may be attached by blocking cancer metastasis after so it can not survive in non-primary place and to achieve the above effects. Therefore, doctors often refer patients especially those suffering from breast cancer Deng, to more fish!

   Other effects may also have cancer foods include licorice, mushrooms and sour cream, etc., for further study.

   One thing should be noted that, although the food there is this or that role in the treatment of cancer, but it can only be used as a supplementary means never replace drugs or surgery.

Healthy food collocation method

Even the simplest Breakfast not only a food, so food can not be ignored mix. With scientifically make more comprehensive nutrition, taste more delicious, more conducive to health (health food). The following “best partner” have this effect.

    Tofu

    Tofu – Tofu Fish and fish are high in protein (protein supplement products, protein supplements information) food, but contains protein (protein food) (protein products, protein information) and amino acids (amino acid food) (amino acid products, amino acids WIRE) Composition Reasonable enough. Lack of protein such as tofu methionine and lysine, fish protein is the lack of phenylalanine, nutritionists called incomplete proteins. If two kinds of food to eat, they can complement each other, so that the protein composition more reasonable. Two kinds of food proteins have become a complete protein, improving utilization value.

    Tofu – seaweed tofu nutritious, containing saponin ingredients, can inhibit the absorption of fat, promote fat decomposition, prevent atherosclerosis peroxisome generation. However, saponin will cause a lack of iodine in the body, and kelp is rich in essential iodine. Both with the food, they can complement each other, help digestion (digested food) and absorption.

Tofu – Tofu belongs to vegetable protein radish, if eating can cause indigestion. If and radish with food, this disadvantage can be eliminated. Because radish helps digestion (digestive aid products to help digest information) of power, tofu nutrients can be absorbed by a large number of people without causing bloating, diarrhea and other discomfort.

     Tofu – both tomato tomatoes vegetable, delicious taste. Tomatoes not only rich in vitamins (vitamin food) (vitamins, vitamin information) and organic acids, but also contains a lot of minerals, accounting for 0.6% of the total weight, in which calcium (calcium foods) (calcium products, Calcium information), phosphorus, zinc (zinc products, zinc IT), iron (Fe food) (iron products, iron Wire) as much, as well as manganese, copper, iodine and other important trace elements (Trace Elements in Food ) (product of trace elements, trace information). Tomatoes contain trace amounts of mineral elements with richer tofu, will meet the human needs of the various trace elements maximum. In addition, thirst, stomach (/ stomach and products) digestion and Qi and tomatoes, raw fluid, heat and toxic tofu with food, its warming stomach, thirst, Qi and efficacy also It will increase.

According to pioneering research of researchers, the secret is that many can transmit information in the brain cells
Chemicals, namely neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are nerve cells use • Some are called precursors
Special food ingredients as synthetic raw materials. Food helps to produce a variety of different functions
Neurotransmitters, neurotransmitter synthesis depends on the type of food offered by the various food ingredients. For instance,
Tryptophan is an amino acid in the protein foods that can be used by the synthesis of 5-HT. 5- by HT
