Introducing AICR's Foods That Fight Cancer™
No single food or food component can protect you against cancer by itself. But strong evidence does show that a diet filled with a variety of plant foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans helps lower risk for many cancers.
We at AICR get asked about specific foods and their anti-cancer potential all the time. Because this science is constantly coming in, and because it can be difficult to know how to turn a given food into a healthy, delicious meal, AICR has relaunched our popular web page Foods That Fight Cancer as an interactive web tool.
At www.aicr.org/foods-that-fight-cancer, you'll read up-to-the-minute findings on a given food's cancer-protective potential, tips for selecting and preparing and serving that food, as well as recipes for bringing it to your dinner table tonight.
We've greatly expanded the information about four of the most-studied (and most-asked-about) foods:
- Broccoli and Cruciferous Vegetables
