Healthy eating is key factor in maintaining a healthy weight and reducing one’s risk of cancer. The American Cancer Society suggests that healthy eaters consume 5 or more servings of vegetables and fruit per day, especially those which contain flavonols. Flavonols help the body to maintain healthy cell function. High concentrations of flavonols can be found in apples, apricots, beans, broad beans, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, chives, cranberries, kale, leeks, pear, onions, red grapes, sweet cherries, and white currants.
