Black tea prevents nonsmokers from having lung cancer while milk and dairy products help deter lung cancer in smokers, according to research presented at CHEST 2010: American College of Chest Physicians Annual Meeting.
The researchers conducted interviews and analysis on 533 female lung cancer patients and 1,971 control subjects.
The researchers found that milk/diary products, vegetables, apples, wine and physical exercise were able to reduce the risk of lung cancer by 43%, 40%, 31%, 23%, 41% respectively. None of these factors, however, were protective for nonsmokers.
Instead, nonsmokers gained a protective effect from black tea (a 34% reduction in risk of lung cancer after drinking black tea).
We have known that nonsmokers have a lower risk of having lung cancer. If you are a nonsmoker and would like to further reduce your odds of getting lung cancer, you might like to consider drinking black tea such as Pu’erh tea.
