By Posted on 2 Comments on Review, Following AICR Recommendations for Cancer Prevention Really Does Prevent Cancer

Eating plenty of plant foods, being active and following AICR’s other recommendations for cancer prevention consistently and significantly decreases cancer incidence and death, finds the first independently-conducted review of the research on the topic. The study was published today in Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention.

AICR research shows that almost a third of the most common US cancers could be prevented by following AICR Recommendations for Cancer Prevention.

Today’s paper looked at studies that investigated how both AICR Recommendations and American Cancer Society (ACS) guidelines for cancer prevention linked to incidence and mortality. Read more… “Review, Following AICR Recommendations for Cancer Prevention Really Does Prevent Cancer”

    What do you think is a moderate amount of pizza? I would say 1-2 slices, but I can bet that my 20-year-old brother would say the whole pizza. Eating food in moderation has become a common piece of advice for weight-maintenance and weight-loss. Being a healthy weight is the most important thing you can do to prevent cancer, after not smoking, according to AICR research.

    But, there is no set definition of moderation. It can vary from person to person, including the amount of food and how often to eat it. New research published in the journal Appetite looked at just that – how people define moderation and how that affects their eating habits.

      A bowl of oatmeal for breakfast or a sandwich made with whole wheat bread can help boost your health many ways, including lowering cholesterol and maintaining a healthy gut. Now, according to new research, those foods and other whole grains may also help you live longer.

      Published in the journal Circulation, the paper included 14 studies totaling over 786,000 participants, most from the US with a few from Scandinavia and the UK. All studies had gathered information on how many whole grain foods the participants ate – through questionnaires or food records.

      The researchers first compared those who ate the most whole grains to the lowest whole grain eaters and found a 12 percent lower risk of dying from cancer among the highest whole grain eating group. For cardiovascular (CVD) death, risk reduced by 18 percent and for any cause of death, there was 16 percent lower risk. Read more… “Study: Whole Grains Link to Less Death From Cancer, Heart Disease”
