According to the National Cancer Institute, high rates of chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease may be closely linked to diet. Many foods found in grocery stores or organic markets contain cancer-fighting properties -- from the antioxidants that neutralize  damage from free radicals to the powerful phytochemicals that scientists are just beginning to explore.  Hollings has provided event chefs with a list of foods and spices believed to help prevent disease by inhibiting cancer cell activity.
