The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) says that a vegetarian diet can help guard against cancers. The new study was done by the American Association for Cancer Research. 69,120 people participated in the study. Beyond the reduction of cancer in general, the study found specific reductions in the risk of gastrointestinal cancers (stomach, colon, pancreas, etc.) and female-specific cancers (breast, uterine, ovarian, etc.). Eat your vegetables, they really are good for you and can help prevent many diseases.
