Consuming fruits and veggies may reduce risk of lymphoma

According to a study presented at an American Association for Cancer Research conference, regular consumption of fruits and vegetables may help prevent the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

The results indicate that individuals who consume three or more servings of fruits and veggies a day had up to a 40 percent reduced risk of developing NHL compared to those who consumed less than one.

“Dietary modifications such as eating more vegetables and fruits are within the public’s grasp to lower their risk of cancer and other diseases,” said Linda Kelemen, lead investigator of the study. “We hope that these findings, in conjunction with continued research and reporting, will help to favorably change the public’s eating behavior.”

Those interested in increasing their fruit and vegetable intake may want to consider taking dietary supplements like those offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.

Ultimate Reds from Dr. Newton’s Naturals contains nutrients from nearly two dozen fruits and vegetables. With an additional 800 mg of vitamin C per serving, regular consumption may support immune system health and promote an overall sense of wellness.
