The foods you choose every day are one of the most important factors in protecting you against cancer. Most Americans eat a diet that is far too high in meat and calories. Even more important is what the average diet lacks: a variety of vegetables, fruits, beans and other plant-based foods.
These plant-based foods give your body not only the nutrients it needs for good health, but an arsenal of compounds (phytochemicals) that help protect against naturally-occurring cancer risks you face every day.
