Snack on apples and switch a few cups of coffee to green tea – it may help reduce your cancer risk

Everyone dreads being diagnosed with cancer, which is why it makes sense to take preventative action.

Following a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight is a known way to reduce cancer risk. New research has delved deeper into the importance of diet and found that foods rich in healthy flavonoids, such as apples and green tea, can reduce your risk for cancer and heart disease.

Flavonids have been shown to be anti-inflammatory and improve blood vessel function. A recent study also found that they help inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
