Fruits and Veg May Lower Breast Cancer Risk

Women who have a high daily intake of fruits and vegetables, particularly cruciferous varieties like broccoli and cabbage, and yellow and orange vegetables, may have a lower risk of breast cancer than women who eat fewer fruits and vegetables, according to Harvard researchers. Analysis of diet questionnaires from more than 180,000 women over 30 years of follow-up, showed that women who ate more than five-and-a-half servings of fruits and vegetables each day had an 11 percent lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who ate two-and-a-half or fewer servings. Higher consumption of fruits and vegetables was especially associated with lower risk of aggressive tumors.
