You're better off quitting smoking than eating tonnes of fruit: Study

Eating fresh fruit and vegetables will not protect you from cancer as they have little effect compared to the negative impact of alcohol and obesity, according to a study published in the British Journal of Cancer.

Consuming even large quantities of fruit and vegetables will only reduce the risk of cancer by a maximum of 10 per cent.

However, smoking - the single biggest cause of cancer - increases the risk of getting the disease by as much as 50-fold.

Being overweight can increase the risk of common cancers and hard-to-treat forms of the disease such as pancreatic, oesophageal and kidney cancer.

Those who drink more alcohol than the recommended daily limit face an increased risk of mouth, throat, breast, bowel and liver cancers, the study said.
