According to a new study, stone fruits like peaches and plums contain a compound that kills breast cancer cells. In honor of this finding, at least eighteen restaurants around town are featuring menu items featuring peaches and plums, and through September 15, one dollar from every dish purchased will go to funding free mammograms.
