    berries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries because they have the most phytonutrients... also pommegranite has ECGC which kills cancer... Oranges and grapefruits (if you are not on pharmaceuticals with the gf) The grape skins have resveratrol but you would have to eat lots... Papaya has lots of beta carotene and alpha carotente and phytonutrients they haven't even named... and canteloupe too. Watermelon and tomatoes have lypocene which kills cancer... if you are a guy that would be the number one bet for prostate cancer for women it is good too..avocodos have lots of everything and even fiber kills cancer by getting rid of excess estrogen in the body.... Most or 80% of breast cancer is estrogen related..mine is 99% and I am healing myself with food. emoticon

    I think raspberries are really high on the list. And blueberries.
I'm ready to watch the movie since my mom had cancer twice. I want to do everything I can to avoid it!

    I would have said blueberries. Wow and I didn't even know this when I blogged about my favorite trail mix. I eat a ton of this fruit that way and I didn't know it. Thanks Jonnie!

    You could be right--he mentions blueberries in one study, but they aren't mentioned in the final bigger comparison--so there are two other really great ones. Be sure to watch!
