According to WebMD, eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables has been linked to a reduced risk of various types of cancer. Here are some fruits that are particularly known for their potential cancer-fighting properties:
Berries - Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and cranberries are all rich in antioxidants called anthocyanins, which have been shown to reduce inflammation and inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
Citrus fruits - Oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruits are high in vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage that can lead to cancer.
Tomatoes - Tomatoes contain a powerful antioxidant called lycopene, which has been shown to reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, including prostate cancer.
Grapes - Grapes contain a compound called resveratrol, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
Apples - Apples are a good source of fiber and contain phytochemicals such as flavonoids, which have been shown to have anti-cancer properties.
Pomegranates - Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, which have been shown to have anti-cancer properties.
Remember that no single fruit can prevent cancer on its own. It's important to eat a balanced diet that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables, along with other healthy foods, to reduce your risk of cancer.
