Pizza to prevent cancer? Yes, please!


We hear that everything causes cancer. Now we might actually have a pizza that cures cancer.

Right now, it’s like everything we enjoy eating will cause cancer and other health problems. What if you could eat pizza that can prevent cancer? Naples researchers may have found the key and it’s all in the Mediterranean diet.

There are many diets out there, but the Mediterranean diet has been considered one of the healthiest for many years. It’s packed with unsaturated fats, plenty of nutrients, and delicious food. While scientists for years have claimed it can help prevent cardiovascular disease and help with weight loss, it turns out that it may also offer cancer-preventing benefits. This includes pizza!

Naples researchers have developed the Pizza Pascalina, which is also known as the “anti-tumor” pizza and the “pizza that extends life.” It doesn’t have any cheese or meat. All the ingredients are full of Mediterranean goodness, including olives, tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, and rapini. This is so healthy that you can have it twice a week and gain all the benefits.

The pizza is based on foods that are known to have anti-cancer benefits, while also helping to reduce heart disease. Cherry tomatoes, a broccoli-like ingredient called rapini, and olives have all been linked to healthier, long-lasting lives. Researchers show that the pizza can help to prevent many types of cancers, including oesophagus cancer and bowel cancer.

Tomatoes are the big ingredient. They’re full of lycopene to make them the beautiful red color, which is a strong antioxidant that helps to not just prevent the growth of tumors but help to reverse them. It’s is effectively absorbed by the body, even in small amounts, which makes it so beneficial.

Pizza Pascalina has now been included in the Pascaliana Food Pyramid, according to Sputnik News.
