When talking about Skin Cancer prevention doctors typically mention guarding yourself from the sun’s damaging rays with clothing and SPF. A new approach to preventing Skin Cancer may be found in one’s eating habits. A Mediterranean Diet of olive oil, fish, yogurt, fruits, vegetables and a moderate amount of red wine can help protect skin. The omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants in the food provide nutrients that accumulate in the skin and serve as the first line of defense against the sun.
