    Cigarette smoking is linked to 18 different types of cancer. It is the leading preventable cause of cancer in the United States, accounting for 19 percent of the 1,570,978 cancers diagnosed in U.S. adults ages 30 and older in 2014, according to the latest research. Another 0.4 percent of the cancer diagnoses in the U.S. that year were attributable to exposure to secondhand smoke.

But just because adding mashed avocado to your bread is the most popular variation of traditional toast, don’t overlook the many other (maybe even better) ways to elevate your breakfast.

      This weekend I cooked up 6 of my favorite breakfast toasts, all featuring a hearty dose of cancer-protective ingredients and bold flavor combinations. All of these toasts pack a hearty dose of fiber and protein, and many also include heart-healthy fats. This combination of nutrients makes these toasts satisfying and balanced, as opposed to traditional white bread with butter that leaves you hungry soon after.
