HealthDay News reports that a new study by a consortium of US researchers, looking at data about almost a half-million Europeans, suggests that there is “only a weak association between high intake of fruits and vegetables and reduced cancer risk.

“The study did find that heavy drinkers who ate plenty of fruits and vegetables had a somewhat reduced risk, but only for cancers associated with smoking and alcohol.”

The full study has been published in the current edition of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
