Along with the obvious lifestyle choices - such as not smoking - diet may play a role in preventing or lessening the risk of developing lung cancer.
Make the following changes:
1.Add more antioxidants. Apples, tomatoes and oranges are especially helpful in nourishing the lungs.
2.Add carrots, yellow squash and dark, leafy greens for their lung-cancer protective carotenoids.
3.Drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins.
4.Eat whole soy foods - their phytoestrogens may have a protective effect.
Keep in mind that dietary carotenoids are your best source. While supplemental mixed carotenoids may offer some benefit, you should avoid taking isolated beta-carotene if you are, or were, a smoker - higher doses may actually increase the risk of lung caner.
