The European Code Against Cancer diet recommendation says “Eat plenty of whole grains, pulses, vegetables and fruits. There is strong evidence that people can reduce their risk of cancer by adopting healthy dietary and activity behaviours. In European populations, people who follow a healthy lifestyle that adheres to the recommendations for cancer prevention have an estimated 18% lower risk of cancer compared with people whose lifestyle and body weight do not meet the recommendations.”
