Anti-Cancer Diet

New evidence that eating plenty of vegetables can help prevent yet another type of cancer, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

A study at the Mayo Clinic reviewed the eating habits of about a thousand people newly diagnosed with lymphoma. They found the patients who consumed three or more servings of vegetables a day had a 40% lower risk of developing lymphoma, compared to those who ate less than a serving a day.

So what's the best stuff on the menu? The study says green leafy vegetables like spinach and stuff from the broccoli and cabbage family appear to be the most helpful. Also that zinc and selenium appear to offer cancer protection as well, whether you get those from eating fruits and veggies or from taking supplements.
