AICR's Foods that Fight Cancer™

No single food can protect you against cancer by itself.

But research shows that a diet filled with a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans and other plant foods helps lower risk for many cancers. In laboratory studies, many individual minerals, vitamins and phytochemicals demonstrate anti-cancer effects.

Foods to Limit

A lot of us grow up eating foods that might be okay to eat, but aren’t necessarily the best thing to eat. As you build your meal plans, make sure you’re not overdoing it with  foods that are best to have in small portions.
