Long hailed for their anti-oxidant properties, researchers now believe carotenoids can also help prevent cancerous tissue in the breast due to their effect on mechanisms such as the immune system, Daily Express reported.

Melons, oranges, peppers, carrots, broccoli, spinach and sweet potatoes are among foods rich in nutrients known as carotenoids.

Scientists at Harvard Medical School in the US, who pooled studies from across the world, concluded: "A diet high in carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables offers many health benefits, including a possible reduced risk of breast cancer."
