Eating Certain Vegetables Reduces Risk of Lung Cancer

Posted:

There is more evidence that certain vegetables can help fight cancer. This time the evidence comes from the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, where researchers compared lung cancer patients to people without the disease. They analyzed each person's vegetable intake, as well as their smoking status.

They found those who ate cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage had a significantly lower risk for lung cancer. This was true even if they were still smoking. This study was presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research.
