CANCER RISK CUT BY FRUIT AND VEG DIET
EATING a wide variety of fruit and vegetables every day can slash the risk of developing lung cancer by a quarter, a study revealed yesterday.
Smokers in particular can cut their risk but the variety they eat is just as important as the quantity.
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.
At least eight types a day is key and more beneficial than eating only four a day, says the study compiled by 10 leading cancer research centres across Europe.
Researchers believe it may be possible to cut the risk by a further four per cent for each new kind of fruit or veg added to the daily diet.
Maria Jose Sanchez Perez, the Spanish co-author of the study, said: “Aside from the amount consumed, a varied diet reduces the risk of developing this cancer – above all in smokers.”
The study is published in the Journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
