For Cancer Prevention, Not All Plant-Based Diets Are Equal
Following a diet rich in healthy plant-based products may lower one's risk of breast cancer, but not if that diet happens to be high in unhealthy foods, researchers have found. The study of more than 65,000 people showed that plant-based diets that were high in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables appear to be more protective against breast cancer than diets rich in processed plant-based products, such as juice and chips.

In contrast, an unhealthy plant-based diet comprising higher intakes of primarily processed products of plant origin, such as refined grains, fruit juices, sweets, desserts, and potatoes, would be worse for breast cancer prevention.
