Total Diet & Eating in Moderation Reduce Death Risk Among Cancer Survivors

By jeremyc | June 6, 2018

According to a new study, cancer survivors who follow a diverse diet and eat everything in moderation live longer than those who don’t. The researchers noted that following a total-diet approach and consuming different foods in moderation was linked to 65 percent lower death risk among cancer survivors.

In recent years, several studies have shown that diet plays an important role in the survival rate of cancer survivors. Just recently, one study revealed that breast cancer patients might be able to extend their life by eating a diet that’s low in fat. Another study, in which the researchers meta-analyzed several existing studies, found that western diet is damaging for breast cancer patients.

However, this study is slightly different than previous ones done on this subject. Previous studies looked into specific foods that are regarded as healthful or unhealthful for cancer patients. The latest dietary guidelines, on the other hand, puts a lot of emphasizes on eating an overall healthful diet.

So in this study the researchers wanted to check if the total diet concept and eating foods in moderation is beneficial for cancer survivors as well. Their findings confirm that this indeed is the case.
