One of the ways to prevent lung cancer is to eat nutritious foods. I’ve found this list of foods, chock-full of nutrients that will help you protect and prevent lung cancer, from Woman’s World Magazine, Sept. 21, 2009, p. 16.
Lung Cancer Facts: Men and Women
The latest research reveals that women are a lot more vulnerable to lung cancer than men are. Lung cancer is more common than breast, ovarian and uterine cancers combined. Research has found out also — even non-smoking women are twice as likely to develop it compared to their partners. According to Woman’s World magazine: Whether you smoke or not, these study proven strategies can slash your risk 60% or more!
Cut Your Lung-Cancer Risk in Half!
Getting vitamin E from whole foods instead of supplements gives you all 8 forms of vitamins E at once. Research at Wake Forest University suggests that these antioxidants are 40 times move effective when taken as a team than when taken solo — helping to cut your lung-cancer risk in half!
Food sources – For Best Results: Enjoy 1 oz. of sunflower seeds, almonds, peanut butter or wheat germ daily.
Great Lung-Protector Foods:
Consuming one cup of spinach daily also halves your odds of ever having lung cancer. Taking in lycopene — the pigment that makes tomatoes red — cuts the risk by up to 32%. Lycopene is best absorbed when eaten with a little fat: “That makes pizza topped with tomato sauce, chopped spinach and cheese a great lung protector!” says women’s health specialist Deborah Bernstein, M.D.
Reduce Lung-Cancer Risk with Apples
Eating an apple a day (skin and all!) can keep the doctor away. Inflammation-fighting nutrients in apples reduce lung-cancer risk by 60%, while boosting resistance to pneumonia and bronchitis.
According to the magazine — Red Delicious, Northern Spy and Cortland apples have the highest concentration of these nutrients.
Heal Damaged Lung Tissue with Oranges
Ann G. Kulze, M.D., author of Dr. Ann’s 10-Step Diet, says: The antioxidant carotenoids in citrus fruits heal damaged lung tissue before cancerous changes occur.
Harvard research suggests: eating just half a cup of oranges a day — or any other carotenoid-rich food, such as carrots, sweet potatoes or butternut squash — can send your lung-cancer risk plunging by 25%.
Prevent Pre-Cancerous Lung Cells – Juice
The natural chemicals called proanthocyanidins from cranberry juice help prevent the spread of precancerous lung cells. Drinking 8 oz. of cranberry juice — or a handful of the dried sweetened berries — daily delivers the same benefit.
Exercise – Lowers Risk of Lung Cancer
Another way to prevent lung cancer is exercise. Exercising in just 20 minutes a day of physical activity improves blood flow to the lungs and speeds healing of damaged tissues. Up to 45% lower risk of lung cancer, even for ex-smokers and current smokers.
