Smokers: Cut Your Lung Cancer Risk... Here's How...

In a recent study, it was found that there was a link to lung cancer and low levels of Vitamin B6 and an amino acid called methionine, which is a substance found in protein like meat, fish and nuts. Amazingly enough, Vitamin B6 is also found in those foods, along with vegetables and bananas.

The study was conducted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

90% of Lung Cancer Is Caused by Smoking...

If you smoke, you should take all precautions to stop the onset of the disease, especially since 90% of all lung cancers are caused by smoking. 

Paul Brennan who led the study and published the results in The Journal of the American Medical Association stated, "This indicates that diet may have an important role in lung cancer development, but it's still a little premature to say simply that if you change your diet and eat more foods with these vitamins then you'll change your future lung cancer risk."

But what's wrong with doing all you can to protect yourself?

Just QUIT!
Just QUIT!

Madam Aphrodite™ Speaks...

Naturally, if you smoke, you should quit! That's the ultimate way to try to protect your health!

But there is additional news concerning this study. Mr. Brennan sums it up perfectly:

"For the two nutrients together (Vitamin B6 and methionine) the risk reduction was about 60 percent.. Obviously if you had a very high risk because you smoke, then a 60 percent reduction of that is quite important, although not as important as quitting smoking." (Emphasis added.)
