The benefits of vegetables according to color
You can find out what benefits vegetables can bring in the fight against cancer, if you look at their color and variety:

British scientists have come to the conclusion that a vegetable diet by 12% reduces the likelihood of cancer. At the same time, it was revealed that oncology most often affects people who consume large quantities of meat and neglect vegetables.
Among other things, 7 vegetables and fruits are needed per day. Previously, British scientists settled on 5 cultures, and the term “five per day” was even entrenched in everyday life. However, then it was revealed that the more vegetables and fruits will be eaten per day, the greater the benefit! The risk of death is reduced by 42%!
Researchers from New York, by contrast, believe that consuming vegetables does not significantly reduce the likelihood of a disease. They claim that the opinion of nutritionists is exaggerated, and the daily inclusion of onions, tomatoes or cruciferous in the diet prevents only 2.5% of cases of oncology. At the same time, researchers argue that those people who consume vegetables tend to lead a healthier lifestyle, which means that the risk of cancer is reduced naturally. But this does not mean that it is not necessary to include the presented cultures in the diet. They lower cholesterol and are a good prevention of heart disease. Indirectly, this also contributes to the oncology side.
