Eat Fruit & Live Longer: Feb is National Cancer Prevention Month
Worried about cancer? Researchers keep finding more evidence confirming that what you eat may help prevent cancer. The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) wants us to know that 2/3 of our diet should be fruit, vegetable, beans or whole grains. Also, excess body fat increases the risk of some cancers - of the esophagus, pancreas, kidney, colorectum, endometrium and breast - so maintaining a lean body weight decreases your cancer risk.
AICR recommends these nutrient dense foods for cancer prevention:
- broccoli, cauliflower, etc.
- grapes and grape juice
- whole grains
- dark green leafy veggies
