Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that dietary habit
affect cancer at many sites. We know that improving our nutrition
decreases our risk of developing certain types of cancer.
If Americans ate a healthy balanced diet that emphasized plant
foods and maintained a healthy weight, as many as one-third of all
cancer deaths could be prevented.
Eating 5 or more servings of colorful fruits and vegetables a
day is part of an essential plan for healthier living. That's
because deeply hued fruits and vegetables provide the wide range of
vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals your body needs to
maintain good health and energy levels, protect against the effects
of aging, and reduce the risk of cancer.
