Here's a study out of UCLA showing that tobacco smokers who eat 3 servings a day of fruits and/or vege's and drink Green or Black Tea daily may be protecting themselves from Lung Cancer according to a study. It showed that smokers who ate certain Flavanoids had the best chance of not getting Lung Cancer and those Flavanoids/Foods are ....Kaempferol found in Brussel Sprouts and Apples and also Qeurcetin found in Beans, Onions and Apples.

Here's the Science Daily Story for those interested.

Heard about this. But smokers BEWARE - Cig. Smoke contains a lot of nasty, nasty stuff - nicotine is a depressant and poison - Arsenic - another killer. Formelerhyde - used on dead bodies to preserve them and lots of others....brussel sprouts are great but would be even more beneficial without the vile evil dangers of cig. smoke.....
