The French agency had compared some 2100 lung cancer patients with a similar number of healthy individuals from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and several other Eastern European countries where cabbage is a normal part of the diet. The French study found that eating vegetables from the cabbage family at least once a week cut cancer risk for people with inactive versions of certain genes, which are carried by two out of every three people worldwide.
