What foods reduce breast cancer risk?

Lifestyle choices can help reduce breast cancer risk, and a healthy diet is one of the factors you can control. Foods that may offer protection from cancers contain antioxidants, phytochemicals and fiber. Eat a diet rich in:
  • Cruciferous and dark, leafy green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, collards and kale
  • Fruits, especially citrus, berries and cherries
  • Whole grains, beans and legumes.
