Eating lots of fruits and vegetables is good for everyone and may even help current and former smokers avoid chronic lung disease, a new investigation reveals. Apples, pears, green leafy vegetables and peppers appear to offer protection against COPD, said researchers led by Joanna Kaluza, of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating lots of fruits and vegetables is good for everyone -- and may even help current and former smokers avoid chronic lung disease
  • regardless of smoking history those who ate five or more servings of certain fruits and vegetables a day were 35 percent less likely to develop COPD
  • not all fruits and veggies were deemed protective

"Smoking is the main risk factor for COPD."
