According to the National Cancer Institute, dietary factors play a significant role in cancer risks. A recent review estimates that 80 percent of cancers of the large bowel, breast and prostate are due to dietary factors. Clearly, what we eat affects our health. We can fight this dreaded disease by selecting foods that contain cancer-fighting agents.

Most doctors agree that a diet full of fruits, vegetables, whole grain and low fat can help lower cancer risks. However, some categories lead the pack:

Cruciferous Vegetables

This group of vegetables includes cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts. They are rich in an antioxidant called sulforaphane. Antioxidants capture free radicals and prevent them from causing damage to the cell membrane and its DNA, both of which are linked to cancer risk.
