I didn't have an answer so I thought maybe someone here does.
I would assume a diet high in antioxidants such as berries(blueberries especially), greens, fruits, and I've done some reading about green tea and they said that it helps with lung function too. For example, over in Japan they drink like 10 cups of green tea a day, and have the one of the lowest rates of cancer in the world and to top it all off, most of them smoke!!
