There's a reason we have that old saying 'avoid it like the plague'. No one likes being sick. The key to better health is a strong immune system. So, can you boost your immunity? The answer isn't a straight yes. That's because the body doesn't have a single 'immunity organ'.

Ideally, you shouldn't be smoking at all. For some though, this can be a really hard habit to beat. A new discovery could take away at least one of the many dangers associated with cigarettes. Researchers found that lycopene and grape seed extracts drastically reduced the amount of cancer-causing free radicals that were passed through a cigarette filter.
Free radicals damage cells by attacking the protein structure, lipids and DNA, and can cause cancer. In the case of cigarettes, the free radicals get a straight path to your respiratory system, courtesy you. That’s why mouth, throat and lung cancer rates are so high among smokers.
While the new filter reduces free radicals, it must be remembered there are hundreds of other deadly chemicals in cigarette smoke that this procedure does not eliminate.
