Antioxidants offer way to help ward off cancer

Dec 01, 2010

Blueberries aren't the only game in town when it comes to antioxidants.

People who are trying to maintain good health and ward off cancer have been increasingly drawn in recent years to foods that are rich in antioxidants, such as blueberries and acai berry.

However, recent media reports suggest that there may be a whole new source of antioxidants for people to consider.

According to a CBS News report, researchers have determined that black rice contains even more antioxidants than blueberries. The article added that black rice also happens to be less expensive than many other antioxidant-rich options, including blueberries and blackberries.

Another cancer-fighting benefit of black rice may be that it has the potential to be used as a substitute for some synthetic food colorings currently in use that some suspect have their own links to cancer and other health problems.

A cancer diagnosis can be a terrifying experience that affects entire families for years. Even those who are lucky enough to beat the disease can find that their life insurance premiums will be elevated because they are considered a higher risk by insurers.
