Just three servings a month of raw broccoli or cabbage can reduce the risk of bladder cancer by 40%. Studies have also shown that dark coloured berries can lower the risk of cancer—showing richly coloured fruit and vegetables can reduce cancer vulnerability. Animal experiments have proved that an extract of green tea can ward off colorectal cancer. According to research reported at the Sixth International Conference on ‘Frontiers in Cancer Prevention’, sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research, a standardized green tea polyphenol preparation limits the growth of colorectal tumours in rats treated with a substance that caused cancer.
