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 the sweet potato.

Sweet potatoes have carotenoids, which have cancer blocking abilities.

Fibbre is making a sweet potato smoothie using multiple prostate cancer superfoods.
