That's why many experts think the best vegetables are the ones highest in antioxidants such as broccoli, carrots, and tomatoes.
But are these vegetables better for you if they are cooked or eaten raw?
Most people think cooking destroys the nutrients, but researchers say that may not be true.
They found that cooking your veggies releases five times more antioxidants.
But even if you cook them, you still need to eat enough of them.
