Facts about Diet and Cancer
Vegan diets are associated with lower cancer risk
Approximately 30% of cancer-related deaths are linked to diet. Plant-based diets are associated with an overall lower cancer rate than that of the general population. The risk reduction varies for different types of cancer sites.
The cancer-protective factors in a plant-based diet include:
Lower rate of obesity.
Cancer-protective foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes – packed with dietary fibers and phytochemicals (phytochemicals act as antioxidants, anti-proliferative agents, and anti-carcinogenic agents that interfere with several cellular processes involved in the progression of cancer).
