Fruits, veg diet can cut cancer risk
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.
Those eating eight or more different types of fruit and veg can reduce their chances of developing epidermoid carcinoma of the lung by up to 23 per cent.
"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.
