Dietary phytoestrogen intake and lung cancer risk: an analysis of the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian (PLCO) cancer screening trial

Following a diet rich in phytoestrogens may boost an individual's defense against lung cancer.

This study reviewed dietary intake of phytoestrogens and its impact on the lung cancer risk. Researchers collected and analyzed dietary information from 1,706 patients with lung cancer and thousands of participants without the disease. 

Researchers discovered that higher dietary ingestion of phytoestrogens correlated with lower risk of lung cancer. Evidence from this study indicate that including more phytoestrogen-containing foods in our diet may help keep lung cancer at bay.
