Swiss Cancer League
Recent epidemiological studies have shown that diet plays an important role in the way cancer develops, or is prevented. Many factors have an impact on the disease – diet is just one of them. However, it is now an accepted scientific fact that the regular consumption of fruit and vegetables in adequate quantities helps protect against and fend off various types of cancer.
The Swiss Cancer League supports the «5 a Day» campaign because of its important contribution to public health, and because it can help reduce cancer rates.
