iVillage.com: Anti-Cancer Superfoods

Oranges and Carrots

May protect against: Lung and several other cancers

Work because: Oranges and carrots are rich, respectively, in the antioxidants vitamin C and beta-carotene. All fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, which appear to protect cells by neutralizing free radicals, molecules that cause damage that can lead to cancer. A diet high in fruits and vegetables has been linked to reduced levels of lung and other cancers. However, taking beta-carotene in supplement form has not been found to be protective against cancer. In fact, beta-carotene supplements increased the risk of lung cancer and death in smokers in a large study.
