April 10/Orlando/WKMG -- Doctors always say that vegetables should be a major part of the diet, but a new study finds they could also help breast cancer patients recover better, according to the American Association for Cancer Research.

It finds that certain vegetables like broccoli, kale, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts can improve cancer survival rates.

The study looked at 4,800 women and found those who ate more vegetables had a lower chance of their cancer coming back.

Doctors say these vegetables have certain antioxidants and nutrients that can stop cancer cells from forming.
