According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the old adage “an apple a day” is proven true.  Eating raw apples that include the skin can keep disease, including cancer, away.  In addition to apples, “Fall favorites like pumpkin, squash, and sweet potatoes are all packed with a cancer-fighting nutrient called carotenoid, while cranberries contain benzoic acid, which has been shown to inhibit the growth of lung cancer, colon cancer, and some forms of leukemia,” according to the NIH article.  There is a short video included with this brief article linked here:  MedlinePlus: Trusted Health Information for You.
