Linking the Mediterranean Diet to Cancer Prevention
Eat less meat.
If you do, research shows your risk for cancer is reduced, up to 50 percent according to some studies. Instead of eating meat, get your protein from fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, and grains, all of which contain protein. Mediterranean favorites include fish like salmon, tuna, sardines; nuts like walnuts or pistachios; and grains like bulgur and quinoa.
