How to Eat to Avoid Cancer

To avoid Alzheimer's, eat like an Italian. This can help prevent cancer too! And an apple a day?or at least an apple PEEL a day?may help keep cancer away.

Researchers have identified a dozen compounds in apple peel that either inhibit or kill cancer cells in laboratory cultures. Food science researcher Rui Hai Liu says, "We found that several compounds have potent anti-proliferative activities against human liver, colon and breast cancer cells and may be partially responsible for the anti-cancer activities of whole apples."

Meanwhile, other researchers are studying whether diet can affect a person?s risk of developing colon cancer. They plan to compare a Mediterranean diet, which is high in olive oil, nuts and fish, with a standard healthy eating plan. Researcher Zora Djuric says, "Overall eating patterns appear to be more important for cancer prevention than intakes of specific nutrients or food groups. We hope this study will give us an indication of the benefits that a person?s diet can have on health, especially in terms of reducing the risk of colon cancer."
