What can I find in my supermarket’s cereal section to help fight cancer?

    Here is a cereal aisle pick that can prevent cancer:

    • Whole grain oats. Oats have the highest proportion of soluble fiber of any grain. Fiber is rich in antioxidants, helps fight colon cancer and phenolic compounds in whole grains may help reduce the risk of certain GI cancers. Dr. Oz's picks in this aisle are cereals high in folate, fiber and/or flaxseed.
