Countless scientific studies show that consuming a diet high in fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of cancer of the stomach, esophagus, lung, oral cavity, pharynx, endometrium, pancreas, and colon. The types of vegetables or fruit that most often appear to be protective against cancer are carrots, green vegetables, cruciferous vegetables, and tomatoes, which make delicious juices. Substances present in vegetables and fruit that also help protect against cancer include isoflavones, vitamin C, lutein, folic acid, beta-carotene, lycopene, selenium, vitamin E, flavonoids, and dietary fiber.
