A healthy diet isn't a magic bullet against cancer, but new research shows it can help.

In fact, diet may even play a greater role than weight management in breast cancer prevention.

 “Overweight women who exercise 150 minutes a week and eat lots of fruits and veggies have a lower risk of breast cancer than normal-weight women who are sedentary and have a low intake of fruits and veggies,” says nutritionist Mary Marian, MS, RD, CSO at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson.

The following foods, in particular, may offer nutrients that promote better breast health and boost your immune system.
