Research shows eating saturated fat significantly increases your risk of lung cancer
Diets that are high in fat
have long been known to cause heart disease
But a study by the National Cancer
Institute found that those whose diets had 15% or more saturated fat were about six times more likely to develop lung cancer
than those whose diets contained 10% of less of the fat.
The study compared the diets of 429 non smoking women who had lung cancer
with diets of 1,021 non smoking women who didn't have lung cancer.
A strongly increasing trend in lung cancer risk was observed with increased saturated fat consumption among these non-smoking women.
And that’s why the best thing you can do to protect your lungs is cut these foods from your diet.

Limit your consumption of these 3 food types
Saturated fats come from animal products such as meat, dairy and eggs. But they are also found in some plant-based sources such as coconut, palm and palm kernel oils.
When you eat these foods, it’s often for the pleasure of taste, so you fail to make the connection between what’s going in your mouth and what it’s doing to your body.
Eating low fat food doesn’t mean you should give up fat entirely, but you do need to educate yourself about which fats should ideally be avoided and which ones are healthier.
You also need to remember to limit your consumption of the foods highest in saturated fats listed below:
These include pork, ground beef, bacon, ham and sirloin. Rather eat lean meats like chicken and turkey that have lower saturated fat.
These include cream, cheese and milk. To minimise the amount of saturated fat added to your diet from these products, select low-fat varieties.
Fats and oils:
These include butter, mayonnaise and palm oil. Try using oils higher in unsaturated fats such as olive oil, vegetable oil and reduced-fat varieties.
If you’re ever in doubt about whether or not your favorite foods contain saturated fat, you should check the nutrition label, which is usually located on the back of the package. Your lungs will thank you.
