Veggies aren't strong anti-cancer agents

A huge study (400,000 people) found only a modest relationship between eating fruits and veggies and not getting cancer. "In this population, an increase of 200 grams a day (7 ounces) of fruits and vegetables resulted in a reduction of about 3 percent of cancer risk." They're good for you in general, but don't count on them to prevent cancer. This shouldn't affect anybody's eating habits, since people who like veggies already eat them.
