The main mantra to prevent cancer is to detoxify your body regularly and it can be done by the consumption of the right foods in the right amount.
Certain foods are known to prevent cancer, and of these, apples, carrots, and beetroots are some familiar anticancer foods. Since a long time now, people from all over the world have been consuming these whole foods in numerous ways to keep themselves healthy. But it has been found that if these foods along with lemon are combined to make a drink, it turns out to be a “magic potion” that can miraculously prevent cancer.

We all know that cancer is characterized by high inflammation of cancerous cells and is also related to oxidative stress. Apples contain flavonoids that act as antioxidants and prevent free radical damage by supporting and controlling normal inflammation.1 Similarly, beetroot also contains numerous nutrients and potential antioxidants such as betacyanin that scavenge free radicals, thereby preventing cancer cells from growing.2 3 Consumption of beetroot juice has also been found to convert nitrate to nitric oxide and keep a person healthy. Carrots, too, are a popularly known anticancer food as this vegetable contains an antioxidant known as beta-carotene. Beta-carotene has proved to be very helpful in preventing the growth of cancer cells.4 The fourth ingredient in this drink is lemon, a rich source of vitamin C, a nutrient that is highly beneficial for health. Vitamin C contains ascorbic acid that has numerous health-benefiting properties. Antioxidants present in apples, beets, and carrots have been found to act jointly with vitamin C and help in cancer prevention effectively.5
