1. Supplements are not that helpful. Studies suggest that antioxidants are less effective when isolated from food and presented in tablet form. A study examining the effects of vitamin E found that it didn’t offer the same benefits when taken as a supplement. 2. A well-balanced diet is perfect. It is recommended that people eat a wide variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and dairy products every day.
3. Better environmental conditions are also necessary. Stop smoking and avoid second-hand smoke as much as possible. Get away from places spewing radiation pollution and air pollution.
