We know that certain foods can help reduce cancer risk. Follow the American Cancer Society guidelines for a healthier life and FIGHT CANCER with he food you eat. Here's how:
  1. Watch your weight
  2. Cut down on total fat intake
  3. Eat more high-fiber foods
  4. Eat fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins A and C, and choose more cabbage-family vegetables (some are also high in vitamin A or C)
  5. Limit alcohol intake, if you drink
  6. East less salt-cured, smoked, or nitrite-cured foods
Diet is suspect as an important cause of as much as 35% of all cancer deaths. And research continues to uncover more information on which foods may help reduce cancer risks.

Best of all, the foods that are good for you are good to eat. Keep the following shopping list with you when you go to your market or post it on your refrigerator. (Capture or Print this list with your browser program!)
