Add green tea and apples to your diet today to protect against lung cancer, whether you're a smoker or not!

by , 22 May 2013

The Inkatha Freedom Party's MP Mario Oriani-Ambrosini is known for his strong stance against smoking, often seen as the driving force for imposing a ban on smoking advertisements. Now, in what's seen as the ultimate irony, Oriani-Ambrosini's been diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. Instead of chemotherapy, he's opting for ‘alternative treatment'. Here's how to minimise your risk of lung cancer, whether you're a smoker or not…

Inkatha Freedom Party MP Mario Oriani-Ambrosini has just disclosed that he’s been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer, without any significant prior symptoms, says TheTimesLive.
Now, Oriani-Ambrosini, who’s defiantly anti-smoking, says he’s rejected chemotherapy as a treatment option as “the medical-pharmaceutical establishment cannot identify the cause of the cancer nor propose an effective cure”.
Some are shocked that he has such a developed form of lung cancer as smoking is generally accepted as the leading cause of lung cancer.
One simple way to reduce your risk of all forms of cancer… whether you’re a smoker or not
But FSPHealth explains that an unbalanced diet is ultimately responsible for 90% of cancers.
That’s why you can reduce your cancer risk by making sure you’re eating enough food that’s been proven to have ‘cancer fighting’ properties, whether you’re a smoker or not.
And thanks to a study conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), it’s been found that smokers who eat three servings of fruits and vegetables per day and drink green tea drastically reduce their risk of cancer, says FSPHealth
Drinks more green tea and make sure apples form part of your daily fruit servings to ensure you’re getting a healthy dose of their cancer-fighting flavonoids!
That’s because green tea is full of the flavonoids catechin, which has among the biggest cancer-protective benefits.
That’s why drinking more green tea’s also recommended as a way to reduce your risk of prostate cancer, says Health Bytes.
Added to this, apples contain kaempferol and quercitin, which round out the top three ‘cancer-protecting’ flavonoids identified in the study.
Even better?
Apples also contain the trace mineral selenium, which some studies have found to be effective in the fight against preventing fatal colon cancer, adds FSPHealth.
There you have it. Add more green tea and apples to your diet today to drastically reduce your cancer risk!
