This is article explains that new research has been found to possibly slow the risk of getting many common cancers, for example breast cancer, skin cancer and lung cancer.

The article also shows the different nutrients and vitamins that can prevent cancer found in the various common fruits and vegetables. Another proffessor also talks about how little studies have been done to show how cancer actually spreads to the different organs.
