Carotenoids are a group of ‘pre-vitamin A’ nutrients that provide significant protection from breast cancer. Orange-colored fruits and vegetables are rich sources of these antioxidant compounds.
Carotenoids are key nutrients for protection and treatment of breast cancer. In a study of over 5,000 premenopausal women, higher intake of carotenoid-rich produce was associated with lower risk for breast cancer. Scientists believe that alpha- and beta-carotenes act as cancer-preventive agents by reducing oxidative stress and free radicals in the body.
