Fight Cancer with Food

30-40% of all Cancers can be Prevented through Lifestyle and Diet!
Several foods are linked to reduced cancer risk, how plentiful are they in your diet?
Colorful veggies are packed with cancer-fighting phytochemicals; green peppers are rich in lutein, red peppers are packed with beta-carotene and tomatoes provide lycopene. This recipe features healthy veggies and flavorful wild rice packed inside an edible pepper bowl. Ground turkey adds lean protein while onions and garlic lend flavor and cancer-fighting antioxidants!
