A study reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology reports some breast cancer survivors who eat more fruits and vegetables than U.S. dietary guidelines can cut their risk of tumors returning by nearly 33%.

The findings, according to researchers from the University of California Davis, held for women who did not have hot flashes after cancer therapy, which suggests fruits and veggies act on estrogen.  The study of 3,000 breast cancer patients involved women whose average age was 53 and were told to double their fruit and vegetable intake to 10 servings a day, increase fiber consumption, and lower fat intake.
