You may want to start eating large amounts of white vegetables as scientists have found that they keep stomachcancer risk at bay.
The study, undertaken by Chinese scientists at Zhejiang University, found eating cauliflower, potatoes and onionsreduces the chance of contracting stomach cancer but that beer, spirits, saltand preserved foods increased a person’s risk of the cancer.
Stomach cancer kills around 13 people every day in Britain and has just a 15% 10 year survival rate. Cabbage, kale and celery were also found to be preventives against the disease. All of the vegetables are thought to contain vitamin C, commonly found in potatoes, which acts as an antioxidant against cellular stress in the stomach. Eating around 50g of the vitamin every day brought the risk of developing the disease down by 8%.
scientists estimated for every 100g of fruit eaten daily the risk of cancer decreased by an average of 5%.
