Dried Beans & Legumes
Red lentils, kidney beans, and black-eyed peas are chock full of cancer-fighting potential. Top on the list is folate, a B
vitamin that reduces the risk of pancreatic cancer. Resistant starch and fiber are two more potential weapons, something gut
bacteria use to produce compounds that protect colon cells. But the best news to date: Preliminary reports show people who
routinely include beans, lentils, and dried peas at meals have a reduced risk of breast and prostate cancer.
