Dr. Michael Greger remarked in a Daily Mail article that the consumption of wholefood vegetarian diets can reduce the risks of various forms of cancer.
“Food is the single greatest way our bodies face exposure to the outside environment,” explained the author of the 2016 bestseller “How Not To Die”. He warned about the carcinogenic chemicals in dairy products, meat, and processed foods. Then he discussed studies from different organizations that suggest wholefood plant diets can protect against cancer.
The Iowa Women’s Health Study has researched the diets of more than 35,000 women for many years now. They determined that eating plenty of cruciferous vegetables seemed to lower the risk of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the seventh most common type of cancer in the United States.
