Antioxidant-Rich Foods

"It's not any one antioxidant or fancy supplement that makes a difference in cancer risk," says Karen Collins, RD. "Rather, the compounds seem to function synergistically." So your best bet is to regularly get a variety in your meals and snacks. Here's where to find the power­house substances.

Beta-carotene: carrots, squash, mangoes, spinach, kale, sweet potatoes

Lutein: collard greens, spinach, kale

Lycopene: tomatoes, watermelon, guava, apricots

Selenium: Brazil nuts, some meats and breads

Vitamin A: sweet potatoes, milk, egg yolks, mozzarella

Vitamin C: many fruits and berries, cereals, fish

Vitamin E: almonds and other nuts; many oils, including safflower and corn
