London: Eating a wide variety of fruit and vegetables every day can slash the risk of developing lung cancer by a quarter, a study has revealed.According to the study, eating at least eight types of fruits and vegetables in a day is key and more beneficial than eating only four a day.Smokers in particular can cut their risk, but it entirely depends on the variety they eat and not just the quantity of food, reports express.co.uk.
"Apart from the amount consumed, a varied diet reduces the risk of developing this cancer - above all in smokers," said Maria Jose Sanchez Perez, the Spanish co-author of the study.IANS
