5. Indulge in nature’s anti-cancer arsenal
Not only can fruits and vegetables help you to maintain a healthy weight, but research suggests that the phytochemicals and antioxidants they contain can help to protect you against cancer.
Because different foods offer different protective benefits, make sure to get a colourful variety. Broccoli and kale, for example, may reduce the risk of colon cancer, while tomatoes can help to protect you against cancers of the stomach and pancreas.
