Chlorophyll and Cancer

Chlorophyll, the pigment that gives plants their beautiful green color, is also a molecule that binds to carcinogens BEFORE they attack our DNA! In one study, chlorophyll was able to totally ABOLISH cancerous cells (in the lab). šŸ˜®

If you consider that you have cancer cells forming every single day, it would make sense to be eating greens every day as well! šŸ„¦šŸŒ±šŸ„’

I find it interesting that in the Biblical account, humans were instructed to eat greens only after sin came into existence. (Genesis 3:18) One reason for this might be that there would have been no need for these healing compounds prior to this, because there would have been nothing to heal from. Iā€™m looking forward to that being the case again some day. Until then, here is another good reason to eat your greens!
