    Pumpkin is a good source of carotenes, a group of nutrients found in fruits and vegetables. One observational study found that women with a history of breast cancer who had high blood levels of carotene had a 43 percent lower risk of breast cancer recurrence as compared to women who had the lowest levels of carotenes in their blood.

    Other studies suggest carotene-rich foods may protect against many other types of cancer (prostate, lung, esophagus, head and neck, stomach, colon, ovary, kidney, bladder, pancreas, cervix, and skin), as well as heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.
