#CancerAware: Eat At Least 5 Portions Of Fruits & Vegetables Daily

According to the American Cancer Society, women whose diets don’t include enough fruits and vegetables may be at increased risk for cervical cancer.

No single food can prevent cancer but a right combination may make a difference.

According to the World Cancer Research Fund, fruits and vegetables probably protect against several cancers, including cancers of the mouth, pharynx (part of throat), larynx (voice box), esophagus, stomach, lung, pancreas and prostate.

Fruits and vegetables are good sources of vitamins and minerals, including folate, vitamin C and potassium.

They are also a great source of dietary fibre, which helps to maintain a healthy gut and prevent constipation and other digestion problems.

So, how much fruits and vegetables do you eat in a day?

Don’t Keep This To Yourself.
Raise Awareness.
Kindly share.
