I’m no Terminator. I am not an Avenger. I am just someone who believes they have the answer. And it’s a simple one.

Everywhere people are affect by this virus. Not necessarily from having the symptoms or the disease itself but just being stuck at home because we are afraid of exposing our body to this virus who’s cure remains unknown. I would like to tell you that it is not as difficult to get the cure as it may seem. This could void your body getting affected in the first place.

The media tells us stock up on toilet paper and bread. Not knowing that those things don’t help as much as we think. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype and react to it but what about those who are not stuck in the Matrix. What are these people doing differently that make their body a repellent to this pandemic?

Throughout decades and centuries, food has been a driving source for all living things. Depending on the diet is whether or not you are strong enough to withstand the power of the illnesses that are hovering around you. Plant based diets have been proven to cure diseases that have seemed impossible.

Cancer is one the biggest causes of death not only around the U.S but the world. It is the second leading cause of death. Meat does not help that case. But what do these plants do to help against cancer and diabetes?

The Functions Of Cancer Fighting Foods

Phytochemicals, which are just a fancy science term for plant chemicals, are produced to protect cells from damage.

Phytochemicals have many beneficial effects, including that they are anti-inflammatory, says Murad from the Mayo Clinic.

Fiber consumption from plants have also benefited the lives of those that had cancer. It is less than 25% likely of young women who added fiber to their diet to obtain breast cancer later in life.

This diet speaks volumes of the strength of vegetables, fruits and legumes. It is essential that we have it as part of our daily intake. If we do change our diet and throw out all the junk food that are in our cabinets and closets we will be victorious for the future in the fight of Covid 19.
