Summer holidays are as much about food as they are about basking in warm sunshine. And while we know summer favorites like hot dogs and hamburgers – and cooking methods like grilling and barbequing – can be associated with increased cancer risk, you don’t have to cut them out completely to protect yourself this season. 

While you’re menu-planning, consider trying something new. With minor modifications – like smothering your lightly-grilled meats and fish with blueberries, or adding in pomegranates and mushrooms – you can make great tasting meals with ingredients that may also fight cancer.
