Foods that may combat cancer can be found at a glance using a new Internet

The website shows which foods contain high levels of phyto-oestrogens -
plant hormones that are thought by many experts to protect against breast

some vegetables and fruits, and raisins.
The database can be seen on-line at Users have to
