5 Food Rules for Fighting Cancer

Reduce your risk by adopting these easy eating habits.

When it comes down to it, you really can’t beat the health benefits of a plant-based diet. Fruits and veggies, especially leafy greens, help reduce overall cancer risk. A high intake of cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, kale, and cabbage, is associated with an 18% reduced risk of colorectal cancer and reduced risk of lung and stomach cancers. Also, including tomato products regularly in your diet has been shown to reduce risk of gastric cancer by 27%. Furthermore, garlic and other allium vegetables, such as onions, significantly reduce risk for gastric cancer. Researchers found that a Western diet (high amounts of meat and fat with minimal amounts of fruits and vegetables) doubles the risk for gastric cancer.
