This is an excerpt from Rev. Percy McCray's article on Biblical Foods. Rev. McCray is Director of Faith-Based Programs at CTCA®
In the Bible, certain foods are mentioned to provide nourishment to the body. The foods of biblical times were all natural, unprocessed, fresh foods. In that time, there were no preservatives, pesticides, hormones or antibiotics added to food. Many of these foods were likely very high in vitamins, minerals and other cancer fighting properties. We encourage your diet to be high in these fresh foods mentioned in the Bible.
Fish (salmon, tuna, cold water fish) – Matthew 15:36; John 21:11-13
Cheese (hard aged white cheese, goat cheese) – 2 Samuel 17:29; Job 10:10
Wild Game (goat, lamb, deer) – Genesis 27:9; 2 Samuel 12:4; Genesis 27:7
DISCLAIMER: It is the position of CTCA and Disciples Path Ministry Inc. that there is no scientific evidence to support nutrition modification alone can prevent or cure Cancer; it is merely one of several ways to potentially reduce risk of developing cancer or side effects and maintenance of quality of life during cancer treatment, and there is still much to learn about nutrition’s overall effectiveness.
