Recent research continues to state the obvious: that a poor diet is associated with increased risk of cancers. Those with diets rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains had lower incidences of cancer than those eating a diet high in processed meats, red meat, and sugar. So be sure to load up your plate with lots of colorful vegetables and fruit, with a little protein and healthy fat, and skip the processed foods and refined sugar. Remember to exercise daily, too–summer is a great time to get outdoors and move!!
