The Cancer Project published an article titled “Diet and Cancer Research”. Phytochemicals are a group of thousands of chemicals found in plant-based foods that can protect us from cancer. Some are known to prevent cancers, others do other things and many are yet undiscovered. These chemicals are in foods like soy, green teas, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, etc. Does this sound familiar? Eat your veggies; they really are good for you. In fact they are far better for us than our mothers and grandmothers could have imagined. The cited article contains a table of Phytochemicals and the foods they are found in.
