More than 8000 Australians are diagnosed with lung cancer each year. The good news is that increasing your intake of vitamin E may cut your risk of lung cancer by a remarkable 50 percent.
According to research from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, published in the International Journal of Cancer, intakes of vitamin E in the alpha-tocopherol form were linked to consistent reductions in lung-cancer risk.
Alpha-tocopherol, or natural vitamin E, is the form used in most supplements. It is also found naturally in foods like nuts (almonds are one of the best sources), seeds, liver and leafy green vegetables like Swiss chard.
