Higher consumption of legumes, beans, lentils, and peas is linked with a 33 percent lower risk of ovarian cancer. This benefit may come from the high fiber content and natural phytoestrogens found in legumes, which are also known as pulses. Beans also are a good source of folate, which has been associated with decreased risk of cancers of the breast, cervix, lung and esophagus. Legumes furnish magnesium, which may lower blood pressure; and they are rich in flavonoids, which seem to protect against both cancer and heart disease.
