Natural Remedies For Lung Cancer

    Love those lungs by protecting them from one of the most common kinds of cancer. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may reduce your risk or support your treatment:

    What You Need To Know:

    • Benefit from B-vitamins
    If you are a smoker, take 10,000 mcg a day of folic acid with a doctor’s supervision and 500 mcg a day of vitamin B12 to help reverse precancerous changes in the lungs

    • Fill up on fruits and veggies
    Lower your risk of lung cancer by eating more foods high in anticancer substances, such as flavonoids, beta-carotene, and lycopene

    • Choose your meat and fish carefully
    Eat more healthy fish to lower your risk, and avoid fried, fatty, or well-done meat to avoid meat-related carcinogens

    • Say good-bye to smoking
    Kick the habit for good and steer clear of secondhand smoke, two of the leading causes of lung cancer

    • Smokers: skip the beta-carotene supplements
    If you are a smoker, get your beta-carotene from food, not supplements, to avoid a possible lung-cancer-promoting effect
