D. Anderson Cancer Center. The investigators also found that physical activity like gardening reduces risk of developing the cancer in former-smokers by up to 45 percent, compared to former smokers who dont garden.

We are trying to understand what components of lifestyle can reduce lung cancer risk in people who have quit smoking − which has been a neglected field of study, said Michele Forman, Ph.D., a professor of epidemiology at the University of Texas. Although this is a very preliminary analysis, it gives us some important clues about how everyone − smokers and non-smokers alike − might be able to reduce their risk of developing lung cancer.
