ABSTRACT: An orange a day may help keep lung disease away, new research from the UK suggests.
COMMENTARY: In the study, researchers confirmed that people who consume high levels of vitamin C and magnesium tend to have healthier lungs. And for the first time, the research showed that people with high levels of vitamin C intake experience less decline in lung function over time.
By minimizing the decline in lung function as time passes, a diet containing lots of foods rich in vitamin C may lower the odds of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the study's authors report in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
