I just finished reading one of those "skip through the pictures" sites about the different foods that help us. For years many in the health food "fad" have said that carrots fight cancer, and now it seems like the medical world is realizing it. Here's the article/picture skip site:

That's interesting, but it sounds like they are studying a population that just eats more veggies/fruits, but still eats meat. I bet they'd see dramatically different (better) results it they studied a vegan population.

And see that subtle little comment about eating less animal fats being further protection. It's toward the end of the article.
