To improve the condition of the lungs, former smokers can eat more tomatoes and apples, according to a new study published in the United States.
The study said that those with difficulty breathing as they ascended several floors, for example, through an appropriate diet can overcome it.
“A diet rich in fruits, especially apples and tomatoes, would greatly benefit the breathing process,” the France-Sour newspaper quoted a study published in the European Respiratory Journal as saying.
The researchers obtained this result after analyzing the medical data of 650 adults in 2002, and conducting a test for the same group ten years later, to measure the ability of the lungs to absorb oxygen.
They found that those who ate on average two tomatoes or more than three other fresh fruits a day were slower to get their lungs down. The function of the lung began to decline by the age of 30, and researchers noted that this beneficial effect would be stronger between Former smokers.
Vanessa García-Larsen, head of the team, said diet could help repair lung damage in people who quit smoking. A diet rich in fruits can slow the natural aging of the lungs, even in people who never smoked.
“These findings suggest that diet change can therefore help combat respiratory diseases,” she concluded. “The findings support the need for special dietary recommendations for people at risk of respiratory diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.”
However, she noted that these positive effects were observed only in the case of consumption of fresh fruit, so that cooked dishes or sauces that contain fruits such as tomatoes do not have the same effect.
