Lung cancer is the leading cause of death in both men and women around the world. As a matter of fact, more people die of lung cancer than pancreatic cancer, colon cancer and breast cancer.
There are two types of lung cancer and both types grow and spread differently.
The first type is large-scale lung cancer, and the second is small cell lung cancer. It is estimated that 70-80% of lung cancer develops from small cell lung cancer, where malignant cells develop in the tissues of the lungs.
Cigarette smoking is the main risk factor for the development of lung cancer, but it is known that passive exposure to tobacco smoke (secondary smoking) and air pollution increase the likelihood of this disease.
Lung cancer is still quite mysterious in the medical field, as there are hardly any methods, that have the potential to completely defeat the disease.
Unfortunately, the prognosis for lung cancer is very poor, as doctors usually fail to identify the disease until an advanced stage has been reached.
Currently, the treatment of lung cancer involves a combination of chemotherapy, surgery, target therapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy and some experimental techniques.
It’s unbelievable, but recently it was found that there was a green herb in the kitchen that could have the potential to fight this disease successfully.
A recent study found that parsley has the ability to help patients with lung cancer. It has a strong anticancer effect with great success in breast, blood or ovarian cancer. Some new studies have shown that flavonoid apiegen destroys some of the cancer cells, may stop their proliferation and growth. Apigenin is still present in celery and in some nuts, but in the highest concentration in parsley.
This herb also offers a wide range of additional health benefits such as improving immunity due to vitamin C content, supporting bone health due to the presence of vitamin K, protecting the body from damage of free radicals, the promotion of healthy kidney function, relieve joint pain due to its strong anti-inflammatory properties and many others.
Parsley is pretty versatile and can easily be included in your daily diet. You can add it to soups, green fruits, green juices, vegetable dishes and salads.
To get the most out of parsley-fighting properties, it is recommended to make tea. This allows you to get the most benefits from a highly concentrated and absorbable form.
