"It started with a cough that would not go away"
November is National Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and everyone should be aware of the dangers and signs of lung cancer.
Often, those who quit smoking develop lung cancer many, many years later - so even if you quit, don't think you are done fighting cancer - your lungs need to clean out - get out and fill them up with lots of good fresh air, take walks and hikes, and BREATHE DEEPLY.
Eat cleansing foods like fruits and veggies that keep all the body systems working well, and provide constant anti-oxidants to fight cancer before it takes hold.
Drink Green Tea: The main reason we understand the health benefits of Green Tea, is because a study in China, a country with a large smoking population, found that men who drank 3 cups of green tea a day had a significantly lower rate of lung cancer. Green Tea had a protective effect.
Also, don't assume that because you don't smoke you won't get lung cancer. Many of us have been exposed to second-hand smoke, but also we live in a world with a lot of air-borne pollutants. We don't know whether what we are exposed to today will give us lung cancer in 10 years.
The best thing to do is keep your body healthy, do everything to prevent cancer, and become aware of the signs and symptoms of the disease and act quickly.
Lung cancer is best caught early because it is difficult to treat, but better yet - strive for prevention.
