From 75 to 80 percent of lung cancer cases comes from a type of cancer called non-small cell lung cancer (NSCL). Although medicine today has several approaches which this serious disease cures or relieves, scientists have come to the natural help.
A study published in the journal PubMed explains that parsley kills lung cancer cells, and can also be used preventively. This active ingredient in parsley participating in the killing of cancer cells is called apigenin.
Foods that contain the substance that kills cancer cells are:
- Chamomile tea
- Red wine
However, the apigenin is most concentrated in parsley and therefore most often recommended in the fight against cancer. According to the Journal of the Cancer Institute, people who frequently eat apples have a 60 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer compared to those who did not eat fruits rich in flavonoids.
Other foods associated with prevention of lung cancer include brassicas such as kale, cabbage and broccoli. It is important that the vegetables are consumed fresh, not cooked.
Olive oil also proved to be good for reducing the risk of almost all cancers.
Daily consumption of olive oil can turn off cancer cells that are trying to survive and destroy the body.
