How to reduce your risk of cancer
Did you know that by just increasing the fiber in your diet you can reduce your chances of getting colon cancer? According to the American Institute of Cancer Research increasing the daily intake of fruits and vegetables to 5 servings per day could reduce cancer rates by as much as 20%. Cruciferous vegetables in the cabbage family, such as broccoli and cauliflower, have compounds that have been shown to block the progression of cancer in experimental animals and in humans.
Menus that include a variety of colorful vegetables and legumes provide a delicious way to stay healthy and fight cancer. A soup like Italian minestrone is a simple one-dish meal that can incorporate many different vegetables. Of course, besides eating healthy meals with a lot of fiber, it is necessary to make other life style changes to maintain the integrity of your body. One of the best things that you can do to avoid becoming a cancer victim is to stop smoking cigarettes.
