Fruit and vegetables do reduce cancer risks

Tomatoes are the exception as they are more effective when cooked. Also, garlic and onions need to have been prominent in the diet as they are known to reduce the risk some cancers. Also, growing fruit and vegetables in depleted soil or harvesting while unripe may also affect their efficacy.
