Veggies Prevent Cancer

A new study finds that a plant-based diet may prevent two types of cancer.

Scientists from Maastricht University in the Netherlands found that compounds in plant-based foods may offer protection against colon and rectal cancer for overweight men and healthy women. The study examined the intake of flavonoids, catechins, and flavonol compounds in 120,852 men and women 55 to 69 years old. These compounds are found in foods such as berries, grapes, onions, kale, and apples. After 13 years, 1,444 men and 1,041 women developed colon or rectal cancer, and researchers found that while there was no correlation in causal factors such as smoking, eating habits, or physical activity, the observed compounds had specific protective effects for these two weight subgroups.
