American Institute for Cancer Research recommends apples as an important component in a diet to lower cancer risk. Why? The antioxidant power in apples ranks among the highest in all fruits. These and other phytochemicals in plant foods can act to:

1. Protect cells from cancer-inducing oxidative damage
2. Prevent the start of cancer growth
3. Stop continued tumor growth
4. Promote cancer cell death

According to laboratory studies done by AICR grantee Dr. Rui Hai Liu, M.D., Ph.D., apples, with their potent phytochemicals, may suppress breast cancer tumor growth.
