Avocados contain antiangiogenic compounds such as lutein that are being studied for their cancer-fighting abilities. In laboratory mice, lutein was shown to have a significant protective effect against colon cancer and was also used to prevent the proliferation of blood vessels in the eyes of mice. This may eventually prove valuable in preventing eye diseases spurred by uncontrolled blood vessel growth. Learn more at http://www.eattobeat.org

Tomato: Tomatoes are rich in carotenoids, such as lycopene which gives lends a bright red color. Lycopene is an angiogenesis inhibitor which suppresses signaling by PDGF and Platelet Activation Factor. In animal studies, lycopene suppresses cancers of the breast, liver, colon, prostate, as well as suppresses metastases. - See more at: http://www.eattobeat.org/food/1309/tomato.html#sthash.9UX2wubB.dpuf

Apple cider: resh apple cider may maintain many of the anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory benefits that apples do. Epidemiological studies have provided accumulating evidence that apples have cancer-preventive properties, particularly against lung and colorectal cancers. - See more at: http://www.eattobeat.org/food/1328/apple-cider.html#sthash.49GqhvXx.dpuf
Fennel: Anethole, the phenolic compound in fennel responsible for its distinct aroma and flavor, is also chemopreventive. Mechanisms of action for anethole’s anti-angiogenic and anti-metastatic activity include the inhibition of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), enzymes that facilitate cancer spread and blood vessel formation via extracellular matrix degradation. - See more at: http://www.eattobeat.org/food/1326/fennel.html#sthash.2EaseEIt.dpuf
