The Power of Food for Cancer Prevention & Survival
Certain diet patterns seem to have a major effect in helping cancer survivors to live longer, healthier lives. Numerous studies have shown that a diet built from plant foods offers the most cancer-fighting protection of any diet plan.
Reviews by the American Institute for Cancer Research showed that as much as 40% of cancer risk may be related to diet.
