The American Cancer Society recognizes October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With that in mind, the South Beach Diet encourages you to eat a variety of antioxidant-rich, disease-fighting foods in a rainbow of colors to help improve your health and reduce your risk of cancer. But in an effort to think pink, we're reminding you to incorporate more red- and pink-hued foods into your meals. Research shows that foods with lycopene, the carotenoid that gives foods a red or pinkish color, may help lower your risk of developing breast cancer, among other types of cancers. Other antioxidants like polyphenols, which are also responsible for giving certain foods their red or pink color, have been shown to help protect against cancer as well.
