Focus on fighting cancer and other chronic diseases with food

Plant foods like fruits, vegetables and whole grains have been shown to be powerful sources of disease fighting antioxidants and phytochemicals.

Make it your goal to get at least 2 cups of delicious fruits and vegetables and at least 3 servings of whole grains each day. Wage your war on cancer with these key strategies:

  • Make sure to include vegetables or fruit at each meal; take a portion that fills half your plate.

  • Go “meatless” for one meal each day.

  • Wash and prepare fruits and veggies; keep them in plain sight so that you can grab-n-go easily.

  • Choose whole grains as often as you can; look for the word “whole” in the first ingredient on the label.
