Prevent Lung Cancer Caused By Smoking By Eating Fruits and Vegetables

fruits-and-vegetables

Dr. William Li recently gave a speech at a Ted Conference where he spoke about a new treatment for cancer. The treatment inhibits angiogenesis, the growth of blood vessels, and has had great success rates on a variety of cancers. Sadly, lung cancer isn’t one of them, but Dr. Li still offered some great news for smokers.

It turns out that there are actually lots of foods and drinks which can help prevent cancer before it progresses into a deadly disease.

  • Green Tea
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Oranges
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemons
  • Apples
  • Pineapple
  • Cherries
  • Red Grapes
  • Red Wine
  • Bok Choy
  • Kale
  • Soy Beans
  • Ginseng
  • Maitake Mushroom
  • Licorice
  • Turmeric
  • Nutmeg
  • Artichokes
  • Lavender
  • Pumpkin
  • Sea Cucumber
  • Tuna
  • Parsley
  • Garlic
  • Tomato
  • Olive Oil
  • Grape Seed Oil
  • Dark Chocolate

All of the foods above are antiangiogenesis and have various levels of potency. By smoking, you may have already caused the mutation of DNA in your blood cells to the point where they may form into cancer later in life. You should do what you can now to prevent it.
