3) BERRIES: Blueberries, cranberries, cherries, raspberries, strawberries and grapes are all rich in anthocyanins that repair and protect DNA.

4) SOYBEANS: Isoflavones such as genistein may help prevent and treat prostate cancer and may reduce breast cancer risk.

5) TEA: Both black and green contain powerful compounds shown in countless studies to lower the risk of several types of cancer.

6) PUMPKIN: This unsung superfood is a super-rich source of both beta-carotene and alpha-carotene, two hard-working carotenoids that combat lung and ovarian cancer.Other good bets: carrots, yams, squash, melons and sweet red peppers.

7) SPINACH: Popeye’s favorite may help KO cancers of the liver, ovaries, colon and prostate.The active antioxidant lutein is also found in kale and other leafy greens.

8) GARLIC: Allium veggies (which also include onions and scallions) work to get your body’s own antioxidant defense systems in gear.This process provides protective benefits against stomach, esophageal and breast cancers.

9) PINEAPPLE: The enzyme bromelain may inhibit the growth of malignant cells in both lung and breast cancer, while the phenolic compounds also provide a protective benefit.

10) APPLE: Can one a day help keep cancer at bay? Studies show quercetin may reduce the risk of lung cancer and impede growth of prostate cancer cells.Other antioxidants, together with pectin, help halt colon and liver cancer cell replication. The list is practically the same as the others.
