A List of Anti-angiogenic Foods

After much requests, Dr. William Li showed the slide with a list of Anti-angiogenic foods.

Antiangiogenic food A List of Anti angiogenic Foods

Some are a bit exotic such as ginseng and sea cucumber and could be expensive to acquire. Most of them are inexpensive and common food that we consume daily.

I’m trying to make sense of the list by grouping them.  Some of them can be taken in volume, e.g. fruits, drink and vegetables. Others cannot have a significant amount in your daily dietary, e.g. spices, ginseng, olive oil and grape seed oil.

Dietary sources of naturally-occurring anti-angiogenic substances
Fruits Spices Drink Vegetable Others
Strawberries Lavender Red wine Pumpkin Dark chocolate
Blackberries Parsley Green tea Bok choy Sea cucumber
Raspberries Garlic Kale Tuna
Blueberries Nutmeg Soy beans Ginseng
Oranges Licorice Artichoke Olive oil
Grapefruit Turmeric Maitake mushroom Grape seed oil
Lemons Tomato
Red grapes

I’m not sure whether Dr. William Li had tested all common food exhaustively. But there are things conspicuously missing, such as coffee, white grapes.  For me, I’d swap those unlisted for the listed here.  It’s better to err on the side of caution.

Now it’s also known that some food if taken in large quantity contain bad or toxic substance, e.g. Tuna has high concentration of  mercury; grape seed oil is ~70% linoleic acid (omega-6), which is believed to be a significant contributor to oxidization of LDL and Heart Disease.

There must be a fine balance.

I guess the old adage: an apple a day, keep doctor away, should mean that it’s safe to consume large quantity of apples.

    One must remeber there are some interesting things left out of the antiangiogenic food idea. For example,
    most of these foods are also anti-inflammatory that whole process may be the significant connection as wel las immune system function. I have a rare genetic disorder that is triggered more intensely with any kind of anti-inflammatory. Yet I also have retinal angiogenisis. It was once known as an auto-immune disorder but has now been
    discovered to be a metabolic disorder. I actually activated because I had gone on a anti-inflammatory diet. My immune system when into hyper drive attacking my body. So be careful. Yes food is medicine but seek balance and moderation. Natural is always best but too much of a good thing can be bad as well.
