Does the Mediterranean Diet Protect against Smoking and Second-Hand Smoke?Healthy Living
New evidence published in Public Health in January supports that the Mediterranean Diet may actually protect against cancers, heart disease and respitory illnesses caused by smoking and second hand smoke. Since the Mediterranean Diet is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, the evidence states that the vitamins and antioxidants in the Mediterranean Diet can alter the negative outcomes of smoking.
Basically the Mediterranean Diet can overpower the negatives of smoking.
Further research is underway to gather more support. But for now I say….make the right choice of diet!!
