Expert nutritionists say one way you can stay fit and healthy all year round is by maintaining healthy natural and informed dietary behaviour. Also, maintaining a regular relationship with your popular yellow oval citrus with juicy acidic flesh – Lemon (water) should be a habit you must choose not to ignore. According to renowned nutritionist and medical expert with the Osh State Medical University in Moscow, Russia, Dr. Guruprasad Reddy B V, Lemon water is able to stave off cancer if you make a habit of it.
According to Guruprasad Reddy, drinking hot lemon water on a regular basis is capable of keeping you free of all forms of cancer, adding that you do not need to add sugar to it. You must have also heard of cold lemon water; but you should understand that for this purpose, hot lemon water is more beneficial than cold lemon water.
Hot lemon water can sustain your health and make you live longer! Hot lemon water kills cancer cells according to recent studies. And so, you may wish to make a daily habit of adding hot water to 2-3 slices of lemon and drinking it up. The bitterness in hot lemon water is about the best substance available to kill off cancer cells, or put a stop to cancer. Research however, shows that cold lemon water as good as it is, only contains vitamin C, but no capacity to ward off cancer. And so, hot lemon water can control cancer tumour growth as clinical tests have proven hot lemon water can be that efficacious.
Guruprasad Reddy says it is good to note that “this type of Lemon extract treatment will only destroy the malignant cells; it does not affect healthy cells.” Citric acid and lemon polyphenol present in lemon juice can also aid in reducing high blood pressure, effective prevention of deep vein thrombosis, improve blood circulation, as well as reduce blood clots.
Further on healthy dietary behaviours, the expert highlights the high potentials of sweet potatoes; he notes that both yellow and purple sweet potatoes have good cancer prevention properties as well. He also advises against eating late at night, stressing that late night dinner often can increase the chance of stomach cancer, and so you need to step down on this habit as much as you can. Also, cooked tomato has better healing properties than the raw ones.
You should never take more than 4 eggs per week; it is not an enviable luxury at all – especially for adults. Also, eating chicken backside can cause stomach cancer; if you consume chicken often, you can do away with this part of your favourite delicacy.
Fruits are wonderful additions and should be a regular part of your daily diet. But never eat fruits after your main meals; Guruprasad Reddy says it’s better to consume your fruits (on a empty stomach) before you take your meals.
For the women folks, you are advised not to take tea during your menstruation period; consume less of soy milk, and remember not to add sugar or egg to your soy milk when you take it.

Drink less liquor or avoid alcoholic beverages completely; most of the time they offer no nutritional benefits, and are capable instead of causing diabetes and hypertension. Also, do not eat toast bread when it is hot and straight from the oven or toaster, and do not charge your hand-phone or any device next to you when you are sleeping.
Remember always to drink 10 glasses of water a day to prevent bladder cancer – especially for the average adult; you actually need to drink more water in the day time and less at night. Still on ‘drinking’, do not drink more than 2 cups of coffee a day no matter how enticing the taste or aroma; it may cause insomnia and gastric problems for you.
Too much of oily food is dangerous to your health; you are better advised to consume less of it. It takes between 5-7 hours to digest them, and they will usually make you feel tired. Very importantly, there are certain types of food that makes you happy. They are in the group of – banana, grapefruit, spinach, pumpkin and peach, etc.
