Prevent lung cancer with okonomiyaki

According to a story on the BBC's web site, eating at least one serving a week of a vegetable from the cabbage family can cut the risk of lung cancer by a half for about half the population (in the studied region) who lack a particular enzyme.

That famous Osaka (and elsewhere) dish Okonomiyaki is cabbage-based, so perhaps frequenting your typical ciggie smoke-filled greasy caff will stave off second-hand lung cancer for a bit, although there is no guarantee that you won't expire from overdosing on fat or beer instead.
