Regular garlic consumption greatly reduces risk of stomach, colon, esophagus, pancreas, and breast cancer.

One study found that women who consumed high amounts of garlic had a 50% lower risk of cancer of the distal colon compared with women who consume garlic infrequently (6).

Tomatoes are relatively rich sources of folate, vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium and lycopene that act against prostate, lung, and stomach cancer.

In one study, individuals who were in the top half of tomato consumption had a lower risk of all cancers combined compared with those in the bottom half (7).
