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). 😮
If you consider that you have cancer cells forming every single day, it would make sense to be eating greens every day as well! 🥦🌱🥒
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. I’m looking forward to that being the case again some day. Until then, here is another good reason to eat your greens!
