Teas: Green, white, oolong. Rich in antioxidants; these teas protect your body by counteracting harmful effects of cell damage.
Tomatoes: Lycopene is an antioxidant found in tomatoe products including: tomato paste, pasta sauce, ketchup and salsa.
Foods rich in Vitamin C: Orange juice & other citrus fruits can help prevent cancers including esophageal cancer.
Cruciferous vegetables: Cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts and turnups help to stimulate the immune system and protect your body against cancers.
While the foods listed above are stated to help fight cancer, none have been found to cure cancer. Some foods such as tomatoes and citrus foods and drinks may increase heartburn or acid reflux and over time lead to risk of esophageal cancer.
Please be sure to consult your physician if you suffer from acid reflux and are considering natural remedies or products.
