Pomegranate: This sweet seeded fruit, a rich source of antioxidants, also has other possible cancer-fighting benefits. City of Hope researchers have identified six chemicals that suppress aromatase — a substance in the body that helps produce estrogen. About 70% of breast cancers need estrogen to grow, and pomegranate is a prime candidate as a breast-cancer-blocking super food. In addition, scientists have detected two substances in the fruit with potential to fight both colon cancer and diabetes.
