Beans and Cancer

Print E-mail
Table of Contents
Scientific research suggests that beans may help to prevent certain types of cancer, including:
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
Beans contain both lignins and phytates, which seem to be the major contributors to the cancer fighting effects of this SuperFood. Lignins are phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are estrogen-like compounds that have been linked to a reduction in risk of developing breast cancer. Phytates are compounds that have been shown to reduce the risk of certain types of intestinal cancer.
