Health Tip: Identifying Lung Cancer Risks For Non Smokers
(HealthDay News) -- Avoiding tobacco is an obvious way to reduce your risk of developing lung cancer. But there are still lung cancer risks if you're a nonsmoker, the American Cancer Society says.
Testing your home for radon, avoiding secondhand smoke and limiting exposure to air pollutants can help prevent lung cancer, the society says.
A healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables may also help reduce your chances of developing lung cancer. Research suggests such a diet lowers everyone's risk, even smokers', the society says.
