New Research that Matters video: More veggies, less breast cancer?

Kathleen Arcaro

Kathleen Arcaro, an environmental toxicologist at CAFE, discusses her research in this latest installment in the Research that Matters video series.

A recent pilot project engaged a community of highly motivated breastfeeding women to help test whether fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of breast cancer by providing samples of their breast milk. When it was found that the levels of a helpful, normally-occurring  hormone did go up as consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables increased, a long-term research study was begun.
