Why pizza can fight cancer

A slice of cancer-busting pizza?
Pizza has always been seen as a meal high in fat and big guilt factor.
But, according to a study, it can also cut your risk of developing a range of cancers.
Researchers discovered that those who ate pizza at least twice a week were 59 per cent less likely to develop cancer of the oesophagus, had a 34 per cent lower risk of throat cancer and were 26 per cent less likely to get colon cancer.
There is growing evidence of the health benefits of a diet rich in tomato sauce, but this is the first time that experts have claimed eating pizza can fight disease.
Dr Silvano Gallus, of the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmaceutical Research in Milan, said: 'We knew that the tomatoes used in the sauce are considered to be a food that prevents certain tumours.
'However, we did not expect that pizza as a whole offered such high prevention against cancer.' The study involved 3,315 patients with tumours of the digestive system who were compared to almost 5,000 people suffering other ailments.
