A new study conducted by the University of Hawaii Cancer Centre has revealed that women can potentially lower their risk of developing bladder cancer by eating more vegetables.
In 2009, there were around 2,300 reported cases of bladder cancer in Australia.
So, if you want to promote corporate health in your workplace and look out for the wellbeing of your female employees, you might want to provide them with some fresh produce!
You can also organise business health insurance, so that they can receive medical treatment if and when they need it.

Over 180,000 adults took part in the University of Hawaii's study, which was conducted over a period of 12 years.
Lauren Winterbottom, spokesperson for AUSVEG, said that the results of the study were welcome, but not surprising.
"The extensive health benefits of vegetables are continuously reaffirmed to us through research activities such as this, and it is imperative that everybody is aware of the advantages a green diet has for overall human health," said Ms Winterbottom in an August 28 statement.
She added that eating more fruit and vegetables could also reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, which is a big killer in Australia.
