I’m doing a speech about cancer prevention through diet changes. I’d like to provide my audience with reliable evidence that eating fruits and vegetables can prevent cancer, and explain why this is so. Would you happen to know where I could get such supporting information?
The best resource at this time is the most recent report from the World Cancer Research Fund, which was just published in the Fall. It is an comprehensive evidence based analysis of the current literature on diet and cancer, including fruits and vegetables. You can find the report at http://www.aicr.org and it is entitled “Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Prevention of Cancer: A Global Perspective” 2nd Expert Report.
