Researchers at the National Cancer Institute found that people who consumed three or more servings of fruit and vegetables per day (not including potatoes) reduced the risk of developing cancer of the lymphatic system, reports Foodnavigator.com.
The risk of developing Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), a form of cancer of the lymphoid tissue that affects over 50,000 Americans each year, was reduced by 40 percent compared to people who ate less than one serving per day. One or more servings per day of green leafy vegetables and just one half or more servings per day of vegetables from the broccoli and cabbage family, including cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, were most effective.
