1. Folate-Rich Foods
Folate is a B-complex vitamin that’s so important it is used to fortify many foods that don’t otherwise contain it. The reason is that low levels of folate are linked to mutations in DNA that leave the door wide open for cancer. Studies have shown that consuming at least 400 micrograms per day can cut your cancer risk significantly.
Great ways to get folate include orange juice, fortified cereals, peanuts, and beans. Spinach and romaine lettuce are also rich in folate, as is asparagus and Brussels sprouts. Try to add something that is rich in folate to each meal, but if you struggle, it might be worth it to take a supplement.
