  • ​Small changes can add up to better health over time. One small change you can make to lower cancer risk is to increase your intake of vegetables. Vegetables are rich in phytochemicals, plant nutrients that may help strengthen the immune system to fight off illness and disease. Phytochemicals may also help prevent damage to and repair DNA (the genetic material in cells), regulate hormones, and slow the growth of cancer cells. Eating a diet rich in vegetables may help prevent cancers of the head and neck, esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum.
  • To get more vegetables into your diet, make vegetables half of your plate at each meal. You can also enjoy vegetables as snacks. Try replacing one snack with vegetables as a first step.
  • To further lower cancer risk, try reducing the amount of high calorie snack foods and processed foods in your diet, such as potato chips and candy. These foods are low in nutrients and the calories can add up fast. By having less of these foods, you can better control your weight. A healthy body weight can help lower your risk of several types of cancer.
  • Snack smart by focusing on lower calorie foods that are packed with nutrition, such as vegetables. You can also control portion sizes by putting your snacks into a small bowl rather than eating out of a larger container.
