Hardly anyone do not like tomatoes, blueberries, red wine, black chocolate, turmeric, green tea or curry.
With constantly consumption of any of food listed above, they can stop tumor growth, perhaps more effectively than chemotherapy and to mention that are very tasty.
How so powerful they can be?
When forming our body is going through a phase called angiogenesis, during this phase all our blood vessels are created. This physiological process is present and later in human life in healing of wounds, when angiogenesis is responsible for formation of granulation tissue and blood vessel growth.
Angiogenesis has fundamental role in tumor growth and its transition from a benign into the malignant stage.
Seven groceries that we have listed above have anti-angiogenesis effect, and because of that they are able to stop cancer cells growth.
They prevent angiogenic growth factor and that way prevent tumor and cancer cells growth.
Tumors are supplied from blood which provide the oxygen and other essential nutrients they require, malignant tumor cells rapidly divide and progressively accumulate mutated cells and then they grow beyond a certain size.
Most cancer medicines are pharmaceutically designed inhibitors, which function is to prevent angiogenesis activators. Inhibitors actually do not attack cancer cells, they only prevent their growing.
As we have mentioned that 7 groceries listed above have a similar anti-angiogenesis effect. Below you can see reasons of the power of each of them.

The research has shown that tomatoes contain high amounts of a substance called lycopene and because of it are very effective in preventing angiogenesis.

All this applies to curry, too.
