Consuming a diet rich in plant food will provide a milieu of phytochemicals (non-nutritive plant chemicals that have protective or disease preventive properties). The additive and synergistic effects of phytochemicals in fruit and vegetables are responsible for their potent antioxidant and anticancer activities, and that the benefit of a diet rich in fruit and vegetables is attributed to the complex mixture of phytochemicals present in whole foods.
