The study undertaken by University of Buffalo public health researchers states that eating more fruits and vegetables may help you stay off tobacco for longer. This is one of its kind study that has found a relationship between fruit and vegetable consumption and smoking cessation.
The researchers came to this conclusion after analyzing over 1,000 smokers aged above 25 years. They then interviewed the same people after 14 months asking them if they had continued their abstinence from tobacco. Those who had were asked on the diet that they followed during that time. The researchers found that smokers who ate more fruits and vegetables were three times more likely to be tobacco-free for at least 30 days. This has highlighted an important issue which can help ensure that people can quit smoking easily.
