Anti-Cancer Shopping List

By Melissa Breyer, Senior Editor, Healthy & Green Living

We hear a lot of advice on what to do to avoid cancer–and with around 1,444,920 new cases of cancer a year, according to the American Cancer Society–it’s no wonder why. One of the easiest and most effective ways to promote good health and to help protect against cancer is with your diet. In fact, The American Cancer society estimates that one third of all cancer deaths might be diet-related.That means watch out for junk food, and embrace healthful food. The foods on this list, prepared by the Cancer Cure Foundation, have the ability to help stave off cancer and some can even help inhibit cancer cell growth or reduce tumor size. The list is not complete–there are other anti-cancer edibles–but this features the all-stars and is an excellent starting point. Click through to the last page for a printable quick-list.
