(NaturalNews) When Greek native Stamatis Moraitis was living in the United States, he was diagnosed with lung cancer and told he had just nine months to live. At the time, he was in his mid-sixties.

Here's a glimpse at his timeline, but don't worry about breaking out a box of tissues: six months into his journey, he started feeling significantly better. Twenty five years later, when he went to visit his U.S. doctors during a trip from his native Greek Island, Ikaria, he learned that his doctors had died. Today, he's living life to the fullest as a vibrant 98-year old.

Fresh, healthy foods key to combating cancer

His secret? In addition to surrounding himself with loving relationships with friends and family and getting plenty of exercise, he plants foods in his own garden and tends to his olive grove daily. He is cancer-free, simply because of the lifestyle he lives in Greece, and his choice to shun chemotherapy, drugs or any kind of therapy.

Mind-body medicine physician and founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute training program, Dr. Lissa Rankin fully believes that people can learn from Moraitis. She suggests taking a cue from people like him who have lived long, healthy lives, especially in the face of a life-threatening illness.

One of her top suggestions is to "Eat plants, avoid animal products, consume lots of olive oil, avoid processed foods . . . " and to stay surrounded by like-minded people.

Best foods to help fight lung cancer

While most fresh fruits and vegetables have nutrients that are good for the body, certain ones in particular stand out when it comes to fighting off lung cancer.

According to the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, people who ate apples regularly had a 60 percent lower risk of lung cancer compared to those who did not consume the flavonoid-rich fruit.

Other foods linked to lung cancer prevention include cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbage and broccoli.

Olive oil, a large part of a Mediterranean diet, has also been shown to reduce the risk of cancers ranging from colon cancers to breast cancer. Consumption of extra-virgin olive oil daily can essentially deactivate cancer cells that try to survive and destroy the body. It's been shown effective in keeping a range of cancers at bay, from breast cancers to stomach cancers.
