Recent research has discovered that fruits and vegetables contain natural cancer fighting capabilities when consumed appropriately.
The research was done at Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and Comprehensive Cancer Center Arthur G. James Hospital and Solove Research Institute, according to a news release.
There are five Ohio and Indiana based cooperatives that have recognized these research findings and are collaborating to develop Growing the Cure.
Growing the Cure is a program that encourages a collaborative effort to fund food research for cancer prevention, according to the release.
Heritage Cooperative, United Landmark, Town & Country, Trupointe and Jackson Jennings have decided to raise awareness and financial support for the research.
These cooperatives presented a check for $103,301 to the Comprehensive Cancer Center-Arthur G. James Hospital, according to the release.
The money raised will be split between the Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural and the Environmental Sciences and Comprehensive Cancer Center-Arthur G. James Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
