Diet and cancer prevention: a sampler of story ideas for '5-a-Day for Better Health Week'

and vegetables, which likely play an important role in the prevention of cancer and other diseases," she says.

"Vitamin supplements cannot replace the benefits obtained from eating a diet high in fruit and vegetables, nor can they reverse the damage caused by a low-fiber, high-fat diet."

Diet and cancer: the big picture

Cancer is more preventable by diet than most people think, says Dr. John Potter, head of the Hutchinson Center's Cancer Prevention Research Program. In 1997 he chaired an international panel that reviewed more than 4,500 international studies on nutrition and cancer prevention.

The result was a comprehensive report, Food, Nutrition and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective, issued by the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research.

The report indicates that 3 to 4 million cases of cancer per year could be prevented by simply changing lifestyle factors such as what we eat and how much we exercise (report summary available upon request).

Potter can address such questions as:

  • Can fruits and vegetables help prevent breast, prostate or colon cancer?
  • Which diets cut cancer risk?
  • Why is diet such an important factor in cancer development and prevention?
  • What is the role of meat consumption in cancer risk?
  • Is fiber really protective against certain types of cancer?
