Hummus Cuts Cancer Risk By 50%. 13 Creative Ways To Make It With Only FIVE Ingredients

There are lots of great cancer-fighting foods - but this Mediterranean food can cut your cancer risk by 50%! And it's delicious!

The main ingredient in hummus is chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans), an excellent source of quality protein, and chock-full of B vitamins too. 

Hummus is so easy to make, delicious, rich in fiber, keeps you feeling fuller for longer, and best of all, it is so good for helping to clean out your gut and boost your immune system in the process.


Chickpeas taste great, with a slightly sweet, nutty flavor, and are superb when added to salads. You can also put them into soups, make hummus, and until they’re crispy, to make a sin-free snack when you’re peckish.

Although chickpeas are a member of the bean family, they have less starch compared to most other beans—an excellent quality for those watching their weights. You can buy them in cans or jars, and if you do, make you sure there is no added salt, and that they’re not soaked in oil. For the ultimate chickpeas, buy the dried variety and boil them at home.

Hummus, when done correctly, has amazing cancer-fighting properties and is said to possibly cut cancer risk by 50%! Chickpeas (and other legumes) contain unique compounds recently discovered to drastically slow the growth of both breast and prostate cancer cells in vitro, and also eradicate 64% of precancerous colon growths in mice.   And yes, these health benefits carry over to people. Large population studies confirm that people eating the most legumes have 32% less risk of cancer in general, including 57% less colon and 45% less prostate cancer.


Making hummus is super simple. Check out the graphic below by for some great recipes. Remember to always choose organic.

Whatever way you’re flavoring your dip, the method is always the same: Rinse and drain any canned beans, then combine everything in a food processor and blend it until smooth. If you like a thinner consistency, add water a tablespoon at a time until you achieve your desired consistency.

PLEASE NOTE: that the graphic calls for canned chickpeas. Personally, we're not a fan of canned food for many reasons (including BPA), and always recommend using fresh beans if possible.
