“Our analysis indicated that intake of vegetables and fruits may have a protective effect on lung cancer”
If you have been diagnosed with lung cancer, at any stage, you know that conventional oncology has little to offer you that is truly curative. This was also the case with my cancer when I was diagnosed in late January of 1994.
Twenty plus years managing cancer, remissions, relapses, collateral damage and secondary cancers has taught me that conventional oncology represents only a tiny fraction of what cancer management is all about. Numerous studies document the ability of nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies to be cytotoxic (kill) to lung cancer.
The study below clearly indicates that fruit and veggie intake can be an actual therapy. But please understand that there is much more to a lung cancer diagnosis that fruit and veggie consumption.
I am both a cancer survivor and cancer coach. I work with cancer patients to manage complicated diagnoses with the best of both conventional (FDA approved) and evidence-based, non-conventional therapies.
If you would like to work with an experienced cancer coach, please scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply ASAP.

The effect of fruit and vegetable intake on the development of lung cancer: a meta-analysis of 32 publications and 20 414 cases
“Background/Objectives: Quantification of the association between the intake of vegetables and fruits and the risk of cancer is controversial.
Subjects/Methods: Pertinent studies were identified by a search in PubMed and Web of Knowledge
Results: 30 articles with 37 studies comprising of 20 075 lung cancer cases for vegetables intake with cancer risk and 31 articles with 38 studies comprising of 20 213 cancer cases for fruits intake with lung cancer risk were included in this meta-analysis. The combined results showed that there were significant associations between vegetables and fruits intake and cancer risk.
Conclusions: Our analysis indicated that intake of vegetables and fruits may have a protective effect on lung cancer, and the associations were stronger in females.
