Women, take note! Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of breast cancer, finds a study. Led by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the study found cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, and yellow and orange vegetables, had a particularly significant association with lower breast cancer risk. "Although prior studies have suggested an association, they have been limited in power, particularly for specific fruits and vegetables and aggressive subtypes of breast cancer," said first author Maryam Farvid.

"This research provides the most complete picture of the importance of consuming high amounts of fruit and vegetables for breast cancer prevention." The researchers found that women who ate more than 5.5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day had an 11 percent lower risk of breast cancer than those who ate 2.5 or fewer servings. (A serving is defined as one cup of raw leafy vegetables, half a cup of raw or cooked vegetables, or half a cup of chopped or cooked fruits.)
