Cancer Fighting Food #2: Pomegranates

High in polyphenols and vitamin C (both antioxidants), this fruit helps fight breast cancer. "Dozens of lab and animal studies show that pomegranates may halt the spread and recurrence of the disease," says Lynne Eldridge, M.D., co-author of Avoiding Cancer One Day at a Time.

Mini Recipe

Pomegranate-berry compote
Simmer 16 ounces unsweetened whole frozen raspberries and strawberries, 1/2 cup sweetened pomegranate juice, and a handful of chopped candied ginger for 5 minutes. Stir in seeds from 2 whole pomegranates; sweeten with honey to taste. Serve warm of cold over oatmeal, whole-grain waffles, or yogurt. You can also use the compote as a topping for roast chicken or pork.
