In terms of cancer prevention through nutrition, whole fruits and vegetables seem to offer the best defense.
The cancer risk for Americans who eat the recommended amounts (five servings) of fruits and vegetables (especially dark green, leafy vegetables, and red, orange, and yellow fruits and vegetables) on a daily basis is 50 to 70 percent lower than for those who consume the least fruits and vegetables.
