Clean Cigarette Smoke And Pollution Out Of Your Lungs Just By Eating These Great Foods

Years of smoking can wreak havoc on your lungs. So can being exposed to secondhand smoke. You can quit smoking and stay away secondhand smoke, but how do you undo the damage that’s already been done?

Antioxidants are known to rid the body of the disgusting tar that smoking leaves behind. Here are some foods you can start eating to help rid your lungs of tar and boost your body’s health by pumping it full of antioxidants, according to the Pink Penguin.

Medical daily reports that antioxidants may even spur lung growth in smokers. Antioxidants are meant to protect the body from disease by preventing cell damage caused by molecules known as free radicals, the Harvard School of Public Health says.

Brazil nuts have lots of selenium in them, which contains… yup, you guessed it, antioxidants. Onions are also said to be good for your lungs and it is recommended that you eat them up to seven times a week. Eating one to four servings of grapefruit per week can help stave off cancer.

And finally ginger. Not only is ginger an excellent source of antioxidants, it is also good for your lungs. Antioxidants are found in foods or vitamins with beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene, selenium, vitamins A, C, and E.
