Fruit Lowers Cancer Risk

6 Jun

The fact that diets higher in fruit are linked to lower body weights could be partially responsible for why fruit may also reduce your risk of cancer.

Fruit’s plentiful array of phytochemicals and nutrients, such as carotenoids, vitamin C, and folate, might also affect cancer risk. There is probable evidence that a higher intake of fruit may be protective against cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, lung, and stomach, according to the latest report by the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund.  There is also some evidence that more fruit may help reduce the risk of pancreatic, liver, and colorectal cancer.
