Dr. Fuhrman is often asked for his list of the best foods to eat—the foods that contain the most micronutrients, phytochemicals and other health-promoting compounds. The foods on his “best” list strongly protect against cancer, favor longevity, and are the foods that he believes everyone should include in their diet on a regular basis.
It is almost as challenging to take all the bad foods in the world and condense them down to the worst of the worst. Foods have the power to heal but also have the power to harm. Our leading causes of death, including cancer, diabetes, and heart disease are primarily the result of the foods we eat. Dr. Fuhrman advises people to avoid the foods on his “worst” list entirely.
