CAPE CORAL, Fla. — September is prostate cancer awareness month.

The prostate cancer foundation says 30-percent of cancers are preventable through lifestyle changes, including eating better. Each day on Fox 4, we'll profile a superfood you can incorporate into your diet. The challenge is called the "Eat It To Beat It."

Today's superfood is eggplant.

Eggplants contain two specific nutrients that, in studies, were shown to have helped fight cancer stem cells. Those cells are the building blocks of tumors.

You can roast eggplant with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and spices as a lighter option.
