carotenoids


Explanation:
Plants are loaded with anti-oxidants which inhibit cancer development. The free radical forms of oxygen also damage DNA and can cause the critical mutations in the chromosomal material needed to lead to malignancy. In addition to the vitamin C family, the carotenoids family (or carotenes) is a large group of plant anti-oxidants which includes beta carotene. Carotenoid ingestion reduces the incidence of breast cancer by 20%.( Hunter, 1993) Carotenoids are abundant in yellow, orange, or dark green colored vegetables. (e.g. carrots, cucumbers and squashes)
