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”

    Portion Size, Energy Density and Losing Weight – What Works

    By Posted on Leave a comment on Portion Size, Energy Density and Losing Weight – What Works

    This week, researchers opened our conference tackling one of the most important lifestyle issues related to cancer:  Exploring ways to effectively harness the power of healthy diet and exercise to help people get to and stay a healthy weight.

    That’s an urgent need, because after smoking, obesity is now the leading lifestyle risk factor for eleven cancers, including colorectal, pancreatic and postmenopausal breast.

    Dr. Barbara Rolls talked about our food environment, portion sizes and energy density and how those factors play a role in weight. She’s an international expert in how energy density (how many calories are in each bite compared to other foods) affects how many calories people eat. Results from her latest study suggest that several strategies using portion awareness, pre-portioned foods or just trying to eat less can all result in meaningful weight loss over a year’s time.

      Garden-Based Intervention Study Supports Healthier Eating for Cancer Survivors

      By Posted on 2 Comments on Garden-Based Intervention Study Supports Healthier Eating for Cancer Survivors

      A garden that provides cancer survivors with fresh produce enables greater intake of fruits and vegetables, along with improved quality of life, suggests the findings a new study.

      The results of this ongoing study were presented as a poster this week at AICR’s research conference – findings have not yet gone through the peer-reviewed publishing process.

      The study was based on Ohio State University’s (OSU) Garden of Hope, a garden designed in collaboration with OSU’s agricultural research center. Read more… “Garden-Based Intervention Study Supports Healthier Eating for Cancer Survivors”
