Eating vegetables and fruit are key to a healthy, cancer-protective diet, yet few Americans meet the daily serving recommendations, with low-income consumers finding it especially difficult. But a recent study demonstrated how a brief discussion combined with a $10 voucher incentive could modestly boost families’ vegetable and fruit consumption.
US News and World Report published its latest rankings of diets on the best ones for health, including for weight loss, diabetes and heart health. But with an estimated 1.6 million new cancer cases in 2016, the rankings missed an important category: cancer prevention.
AICR – along with that of other major health organizations – now clearly recognize that diet plays an important role in reducing risk for many common cancers.
