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

By Posted on 2 Comments on 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.

      SNPs, Activity, Vitamin D Research, Highlights from AICR Award Winners at ObesityWeek

      By Posted on 2 Comments on SNPs, Activity, Vitamin D Research, Highlights from AICR Award Winners at ObesityWeek

      Congratulations to this year’s ObesityWeek Conference poster winners.

      The annual conference, held this year in New Orleans, focuses on the basic science, treatment, and prevention of obesity. It is an important topic because obesity links to several types of cancer, including post-menopausal breast, advanced prostate, and colorectal.

      Highlighted below are three of the winners of the AICR research poster competition, which was announced yesterday. The research focused on how genetics, physical activity, and nutrients influence cancer risk, treatment, and survival.

      Note: These poster findings have not been published and have not been subjected to the peer-reviewed process. Read more… “SNPs, Activity, Vitamin D Research, Highlights from AICR Award Winners at ObesityWeek”
