Whole Foods Diet Helps Prevent Cancer

ButternutSquashA tidal wave of cancer is predicted by the World Health Organization over the next 20 years, with cases expected to rise from 14 million worldwide to 24 million by 2035.

What’s more shocking is that lifestyle choices, including diet could prevent half of these case, according to a cancer expert in the UK. While there has been much research and activity on the inheritance of cancer traits through heredity, only 10% or so of cancer are passed on through the genes.

The World Cancer Research Fund suggests “a diet packed with vegetables, fruit, and whole grains; cutting down on alcohol and red meat; and junking processed meat completely”, according to a BBC report.
