Have you decided to give smoking up? This is the right decision to help your health. Nevertheless, you understand that your lungs have been affected by smoking for several years. According to John Hopkins, you have a chance to reduce the negative effects of smoking. This method is pretty simple. You need to include more fruits and vegetables in your daily diet, especially tomatoes and apples.
The scientists, who conducted the research and began it in 2002, came to this conclusion. The study took more than 600 people who were smokers. After ten years, scientists checked the health of these people, and it turned out that those who ate many apples, and tomatoes were healthier. Their lungs were affected less than the lungs of people who ate a small number of fruits and vegetables. This positive effect was also seen in people who gave smoking up. By eating fruit every day, they could help their lungs regain their health. Based on these results, scientists concluded that fruits affect the healing processes in the respiratory system.
We want to draw your attention to the fact that tomatoes are fruits because they have seeds. We assure you that it does not matter how to call them correctly, the main thing is that they benefit your body, is not it?
According to Vanessa Garcia-Larsen, an assistant professor at the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins School, most people are predisposed to reduce lung function at the age of about 30 years. This can be avoided if you consume much fruit. Vitamins and substances, which are in fruits can restore this function even in smokers with experience. Scientists who are trying to develop effective ways to combat COPD [chronic obstructive pulmonary disease] must take the results of the study to find medicine. This disease is spreading fast around the world, and action is needed.
