Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots and yellow peppers all produced the strongest effects, researchers claimed. Orange and yellow vegetables as well as leafy cruciferous varieties from cabbage to cauliflowers were the most beneficial.
Harvard University researchers analysed data from 182,000 women over 37 years to make the conclusion. Researchers compared the risk of cancer between women who ate 5.5 servings of fruit and veg a day, compared to those who had less than 2.5. A serving is defined as one cup of raw leafy vegetables, half a cup of raw or cooked vegetables, or half a cup of chopped or cooked fruits.
“This research provides the most complete picture of the importance of consuming high amounts of fruit and vegetables for breast cancer prevention,” the study claims.

- A change in the size or shape of one or both breasts
- Discharge from either of your nipples, which may be streaked with blood
- A lump or swelling in either of your armpits
- Dimpling on the skin of your breasts
- A rash on or around your nipple
- A change in the appearance of your nipple, such as becoming sunken into your breast
- Breast pain isn’t usually a symptom of breast cancer.
