CPT #2

Blessings, Darlings!

Cancer prevention tip #2 is ... embrace the power of the rainbow and diversity

That is, eat a wide range of fruits and veggies with a wide range of colors.  Ad the brighter/deeper the color the better.  By doing this your diet will naturally contain a range of phytochemicals.  And to quote Wikipedia....
Phytochemicals are chemical compounds that occur naturally in plants, such as beta-carotene. The term is generally used to refer to those chemicals that may affect health, but are not yet established as essential nutrients.[1] While there is abundant scientific and government support for recommending diets rich in fruits and vegetables,[2] there is only limited evidence that health benefits are due to specific phytochemicals.[1]

Thus, by eating a range of foods and colors, you cover your assets, by natural and delicious means.

I just bought some purple sweet potatoes, myself.

Frondly, Fern
