What to Eat?

What to Eat?


These are my notes what I believe that the best foods to eat are to enhance our immune system against cancer.  Writing in English is still a challenge for me and even worse with biology words so please bear it with me. It is only going to be better.


The adult human body is made up of about 60-90 trillion cells and over 200 different kind of cells.  In means, if you lined up all the cells in a human body end-to-end, you could actually circle the earth 4.5 times. So keeping your health well also means that you are protecting your healthy cells. The question is how we can keep our cells safe. One of most important part thing of the cell is the cell surface. Because the antenna on the cell surface is a key to healthy development and disease prevention.



Next one is Mitochondria. Mitochondria are the energy factories of the cells.  The cell will have a lot of structures that are capable of producing a high amount of available energy.



Therefore, “the best food” means that has a lot of materials which will protect our cells. We also need to know what will destroys our cells.

Free Radicals are the most harmful thing our body ever produced. It destroys our cell surface, Mitochondrial and does damage to our DNA. It plays a role in inflammatory disease and progression to cancer. The amount of Free Radicals our body produces is depend on our life style. Our body produce more if you do over eating, over working and are stressed etc. It is important how much Free Radicals are been produced and it is also important the direction it takes.



Normally, the body can handle free radicals, but if antioxidants are unavailable, or if the free-radical production becomes excessive, damage can occur.



Therefore the good food  which protect our cells from free radicals. Which we call  phenolic compounds. Natural phenolic compounds play an important role in cancer prevention and treatment. What it does is it accepts the free radical into them and it changes to something which doesn’t harm to our body. Therefore one of the most important ways to keep our health is to have the phenolic compounds.  So the best food for us should have a lot of the natural phenolic compounds.

Phenols are one of the major groups of nonessential dietary components appearing in vegetable foods. They are a wide chemical compounds group that are considered as secondary plant metabolites, with different activity and chemical structure, including more than 8,000 different compounds. Phenols, has traditionally been considered as antinutritive compounds due to the adverse effect of one of their main components, tannins, on protein digestibility. However, actually there is an increased interest in these compounds because they have been associated with the inhibition of atherosclerosis and cancer. The bioactivity of phenolics may be related to their antioxidant behaviour, which is attributed to their ability to chelate metals, inhibit lipoxygenase and scavenge free radicals. This review make a global view on the main phenolic compound groups, their organoleptic effects in vegetable foods, their physiological effects in humans, their metabolism, bioavailability as well as their content in the diet.”

The Top 3 Phenols in Food


 1. Vitamin C – Most common in vegetable and fruits

vitaminC2. Vitamin E – in Rice Germ, bean  etc

3. Beta Carotene – food that has color ( orange, yellow, purple etc)


One important thing: Even though they are the most important food for our diet, but if you eat too much of them, it wont work. ( Yes, it is very difficult to control the amount of food we eat. It is very important to know what effect is has on us by doing this. )

It looks like the most common food is the one we need for our diet.They seem to be everywhere for everyone. As long as we keep to enhancing our immune systems, our bodies will take care by themselves. The question is what we going to do about it.
