cW Recipes: Wild Ginger Salmon with Asian Slaw
This delicious and easy-to-make salmon recipe is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, flavonoids, vitamin C, and fiber to fight cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society, the most prominent cancers in American men are prostate, colon, and lung cancer. The nutrients in our food play a big part in protecting our bodies from these cancers. The ingredients in these recipes feature anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help combat cancer formation and growth. Evidence suggests certain nutrients—particularly omega-3 fatty acids, lycopene, flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamin C, selenium, magnesium, fiber, allicin, and curcumin—all play major roles in combating cancer.

These dishes also contain omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight inflammation and have been shown to reduce risk of colon and prostate cancer, according to studies in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention and in the Journal of Nutrition. In addition, these recipes are high in soluble and insoluble fiber, which have been shown to protect against colon cancer, according to the American Institute of Cancer Research.
