There’s a way for women who smoke to reduce their risk of oral cancer. And it has nothing to do with quitting smoking.
According a new study by the British Dental Health Foundation, eating green, leafy vegetables will lower the risk of oral cancer for women who smoke. Every time a woman eats a serving of green, leafy vegetables, the odds of developing oral cancer decrease. Still, the best way to reduce your risk for oral cancer is to quit, but this new way might be second.
This finding was part of a larger study aimed at discovering how one’s diet affects their risk of oral cancer.
