“Years of extensive research suggests that the best diet for cancer prevention is plant-based – which means lots of fruits and vegetables,” Amit Patel, MD. “They are packed full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that protect against cell damage which ultimately leads to cancer. A plant-based diet will also lead to a fewer consumption of calories which will ultimately help to maintain a healthy weight and decrease cancer risk even more!  Think it’s difficult to make the switch?  Try transitioning slowly by making small changes such as having 1-2 meatless meals a week or substituting using meatless products.  You can also substitute fruit as your dessert with the addition of natural sweeteners to satisfy your sweet tooth.”
