<< VEGETABLES REDUCE COLON CANCER RISK
 
 In this study, food intake of about 2,000 colon cancer patients
 between 30 to 79 was compared with the diet of over 2,000 people without
 cancer. There was a significant reduction in cancer risk (17%) in people
 who had the highest intake of foods rich in lutein, an anti-oxidant that
 neutralizes cancer-causing free radicals. The protective effect of lutein
 was evident in both men and women and was particularly strong in subjects
 whose cancer was diagnosed before the age of 67.
 
 Lutein-rich foods include dark leafy vegetables (spinach, kale),
 broccoli, dark lettuce, tomatoes, oranges, carrots and celery.
