Rainbow of foods benefits health

READ MORE:
What you eat could reduce your risk of cancer, according to a new study. Over 1,300 prostate cancer patients were studied for more than four years. Results published in the "Journal of the National Cancer Institute" found that eating more than one serving a week of broccoli or other dark green vegetable helped prevent aggressive prostate cancer. Having a rainbow of foods on your plate benefits your health. The greener, the redder, the bluer it is, the better it is when it comes to choosing what you eat. Green helps with eyesight, red supports heart and brain function. Orange boosts the immune system, while blue improves the memory. The American Cancer Society recommends eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables every day.
