autumn fruits vegetables In autumn, take advantage of fruits and vegetables that help prevent cancerMany of the fruits and vegetables that help fight cancer are at their nutritional peak in the fall and a good time to incorporate into the diet is advice of a nutritionist.

For example, research suggests that eating an apple a day really can keep the doctor away, helping to prevent cancer of the throat, mouth, lungs and possibly breast cancer, said Stacy Kennedy, nutritionist Senior at the Boston Cancer Institute, Dana-Farber.

Apples contain a nutrient called quercetin, which protects cellular DNA against damage that could cause cancer. “The key is to eat them raw, without removing the skin. That’s where many of the nutrients are, “Kennedy said in a news release from the institute.

Cranberries, another favorite of autumn are in season and at their nutritional peak at that time. Kennedy proposed to stockpile bags of cranberries and freeze them for use throughout the year, because there is evidence that benzoic acid found in these berries can inhibit lung cancer and colon and even some forms of leukemia.

Among the brightly colored vegetables are available fresh at this time of year are beets, carrots and turnips. Kennedy suggests serving generous portions of these. “The brighter and richer the pigment, the higher level of cancer-fighting nutrients,” said Kennedy.

Dark leafy vegetables like kale, broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts are also important, he said. People who eat lots of these vegetables have lower rates of lung, prostate and stomach. “Kale is better because it is rich in phytonutrients called indoles, which stimulate liver detoxification and help fight cancer,” said Kennedy.

The orange vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkins and squash are full of nutrients called carotenoids, which have been linked to the prevention of colon cancer, prostate, breast and lung.

Color is key to finding cancer-fighting foods at any time of year, Kennedy said. “Eating a plant-based diet is the best way to help reduce the risk of cancer every year,” he said.
