Angiogenesis- where foods can help

Continuing to increase my medical knowledge and the feeling we have swallowed a textbook, angiogenesis is one of the new hip happening phrases-

“Angiogenesis” is the body’s process for creating new blood vessels, but cancer cells can interfere with this process and use blood flow to stimulate their own growth. Eating an anti-angiogenesis diet aims to starve cancer by cutting off its blood supply, inhibiting the production of cancer cells. Anti-angiogenesis foods include strawberries, bok choy, broccoli, soybeans (especially fermented soy products such as miso and tempeh), and tomatoes (cooked is better). Green tea, dark chocolate, and various spices such as cinnamon can also decrease cancer risk.

Still yet to see eclairs or ice cream making a late entry, buy guess who will be having broccoli and bok choy ( will have to look up what this is ) followed by strawberries and chocolate this weekend.
