Quitting Smoking

If you're trying to stop smoking, stick to eating your fruits and veggies. That's what some are now saying after research shows certain foods affect the taste of cigarettes.

Many smokers say there are times when a cigarette tastes better but scientists have found certain foods and drinks can have the opposite effect. A study showed fruits, vegetables, milk, and juice worsened the taste of cigarettes.

The why is still unknown but researchers are working hard to figure it out because the answer could lead to new treatments for smokers.

Until more research is done scientists are advising, if you're trying to quit lay off caffeine and alcohol and load up on fruits and vegetables.
