The findings suggested that women, among the study participants, who ate more than 5.5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day had an 11 per cent lower risk of breast cancer than those who ate only 2.5 or fewer servings.

The study published in the International Journal of Cancer said Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, yellow and orange vegetables had a particularly significant association with lower breast cancer risk.
