With the growing industrialization, various types of carcinogens are spreading in our environment that poses the risk of different hues of cancer. A food rich in antioxidants, polyphenols and other phytochemicals help in combating with the threat to cause some forms of cancer. The first question that comes to or mind is how foods exactly fight against cancer. Certain phytochemicals present in the food prevent the formation of carcinogens and keep carcinogens away from reaching important sites in the body.
