As it was known a few months ago, cancer is still the second cause of death in the world after cardiovascular diseases and alterations, despite the different medical advances that have been carried out on this subject with the passage of years.

But it is vitally important not only to maintain a series of healthy and healthy habits in our daily lives, but also to make changes in our diet to fight against the onset of this terrible disease.

  • Cruciferae such as cabbage, red cabbage, cabbage or broccoli (among others), possess substances that increase the antioxidant defenses of our body and activate enzymes against those carcinogenic residues.
