Healthy lifestyle choices can help reduce the risk of cancers of the breast, ovary, uterus, and prostate. When shopping for foods that can reduce the risk of cancer look for: low fat, low sugar, antioxidants, fiber, and isoflavones. A healthy diet should include approximately five servings of fruits and vegetables daily and 30 minutes of exercise five days a week.

Did I miss any anti-cancer foods?

Great Advice. Local food is much better and taste better too in my opinion! I had collard greens for first time 2 years ago and it was really good. I never had chard.
