The healthiest foods in the world to reduce cancer risk — recipes to try – Express

Researcher Jennifer Di Noia, PhD, based at William Paterson University in New Jersey, classified nutrient-dense powerhouse foods, such as watercress.
Powerhouse foods were “most strongly associated with reduced chronic disease risk”, the study noted.
Dietician Joanna Gregg said: “Watch out kale, there is a new supergreen on the scene.
“With strong antioxidant properties, watercress’s health benefits range from decreasing oxidant stress to reducing tissue damage related to the development of some cancers.
“This aromatic vegetable can be added to any salad, sandwich or smoothie for a powerful health-promoting punch.”

        5. In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard and agave. While whisking constantly, slowly stream in both oils.
            Stir in the chopped dill and season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper. (This recipe makes more vinaigrette than you’ll                need, so save it for other salads.)
        6. Using a sharp knife, cut the fingerling potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut the soft-boiled eggs in half lengthwise, being                      careful not to spill the yolk.
        7. Smear the Greek yoghurt on the bottom of two salad plates. Arrange the watercress, cucumber, red onion, potatoes and              salmon on each plate.
        8. Carefully place two soft-boiled egg halves on each plate. Drizzle each salad with two tablespoons of the mustard-dill                    vinaigrette. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and freshly ground black pepper; garnish with dill sprigs. Serve right away.
Make ahead: The potatoes, soft-boiled eggs and vinaigrette can be refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before assembling the salads.

“It is also part of the cruciferous vegetable family, alongside broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.
“Cruciferous vegetables have powerful antioxidants in them that help prevent cell damage that might cause cancer and other diseases.”
