Stronger Than Cancer Everything about cancer

Does the lemon helps in prevention as well as cure of Cancer

by Oawan » 13 Nov 2017, 14:47

Recently I have received a message on Whats App. The message was stating that the Lemon is a cure of Cancer.

So I searched on net to confirm and found many forums describing same thing and stating that many Cancer Research Centers are doing research on this.

I am quite curious if this is true or just a rumor.

Thank you for your question.

For now, no scientific evidence has shown that lemons can cure cancer. Proven ways include conventional treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

As for prevention, citrus fruits, such as lemons, are labelled as ‘superfoods’ due to their high vitamin C content. Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant, which prevents our DNA and cells from free radical damage – something linked to cancer development. Some evidence has shown that fresh fruit and vegetables high in antioxidants can prevent certain types of cancer.

As a general rule of thumb, a healthy and balanced diet together with physical activity are keys to good health, and cancer prevention.

I hope have clarified your doubts.
