AICR research shows that eating plenty of fruit is one of the ways to lower risk of oral cancers, such as mouth, pharynx and larynx. Now a study highlighted at our conference this week hones in on how one type of fruit – black raspberries – may reduce oral cancers, at least in rodents.

The study, not yet published, found that black raspberries slowed the development of oral cancers in rats and identified cancer-related genes that were affected.

Here’s more about the study. Read more… “Animal Study Identifies How Black Raspberries May Lower Oral Cancers”

    New Research, Exercise is Safe, Helpful for Breast and Prostate Cancer Patients

    Back in 2010, the American College of Sports Medicine put out new guidelines for cancer survivors when it comes to being active. The main gist: avoid inactivity and aim for the government guidelines of 150 minutes a week.

    But the field of exercise and those undergoing cancer treatment is relatively new, and the experts said more research is needed. It’s important for the growing population of cancer survivors – now 15.5 million and growing quickly – and their loved ones.

    Now comes a new study from researchers at Ohio State that shows exercise is indeed safe and provides improvement for breast and prostate cancer patients. The scientists presented their research at our conference. You can read more about it hereRead more… “New Research, Exercise is Safe, Helpful for Breast and Prostate Cancer Patients”

      Anti-inflammatory diet may lower risk of mortality from heart disease among breast cancer survivors

      There’s been a lot of research on anti-inflammatory diets over the years, much of it related to cancer and other chronic diseases. That’s because chronic inflammation is strongly associated with the development of many cancers, such as colorectal.

      Those links led to University of South Carolina researchers developing a dietary inflammatory index — a measure of how much foods and its components may increase or decrease inflammation. Here’s some of foods. Read more… “Anti-inflammatory diet may lower risk of mortality from heart disease among breast cancer survivors”
