Flavonoid-Rich Diets Protect Against Cancer And Heart Disease

Flavonoid-Rich Diets Protect Against Cancer

Lifestyle changes can make a significant impact on overall health and help avoid several diseases. Now, researchers from Edith Cowan University proved with a study that lasted for 23 years, that people who have flavonoid-rich diets (e.g., onions, ginger, black and green teas, citric fruits, celery) are less likely to die from cancer.

These protective effects were more pronounced in people with higher risks (e.g., cigarette smokers and people who drink regular alcohol). It’s important to point out that the flavonoids don’t counteract all the dangers caused by smoking and drinking alcohol, so they are no substitutes for stopping these habits and living a healthy lifestyle.
