VITAMIN D  :-It decreases the risk of cancer , perhaps it is toxic to cancer cells. Most of us do not get enough vitamin  D because we live most of the time indoors and outdoors with sun screen.

But we should stay in sun just after  sunrise , because the rays are not so strong  at that time.

MONOUNSATURATED FATS :- This type of fat has anti carcinogenic property.Rich source of this fat is olive oil. So include olive oil in your diet.
