According to a new study led by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, United States, women who eat large amounts of fruits and vegetables every day have a lower chance of developing breast cancer, especially for aggressive types of cancer. Also found were three vegetable variants that were known to have the highest nutritional content in reducing the risk of breast cancer, namely green vegetables such as broccoli, yellow vegetables, and orange vegetables. This study has been published online on July 6, 2018 in the International Journal of Cancer, as summarized from sciencedaily.com.

This study analyzed questionnaire data on diet in 88,301 women in the Nurses 'Health Study and further studies involving 93,844 female participants from the Nurses' Health Study II. Questionnaires were distributed every 4 years, starting in 1980. Respondent data on breast cancer risk factors such as age, weight, smoking habits, and the presence or absence of cancer history in the families of participants, were asked through questionnaires conducted every 2 years.The result? Researchers found that women who consumed more than 5.5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day had a 11% lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who ate only 2.5 servings. As an explanation, in this study, one-serving dose was defined as one cup containing raw vegetable vegetables, half a cup of cooked vegetables, and half a cup of cut fruit.When analyzing, the researchers concluded that the high content of antioxidants and micronutrients in vegetables and fruit, a powerful opponent for cancer does not develop. "It is hoped that the results of this study can motivate everyone, especially women to increase their intake of vegetables and fruit," said Heather Eliassen, a professor at Harvard Medical School and an epidemiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital.Well, how about this, about now the Healthy Gang has been more inspired or not, to consume fruits and vegetables?
