Eating plenty of plant foods, being active and following AICR’s other recommendations for cancer prevention consistently and significantly decrease 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”

    Study: Before Colorectal Cancer, Eating Healthy and Following AICR Recs Prolongs Survival

    By Posted on

    For colorectal cancer, research shows that eating healthy, being active, and staying a healthy weight make a big difference in reducing the risk of developing this cancer. AICR estimates that while there are no guarantees, one of every two colorectal cancer cases can be prevented by following our recommendations.

    Now a new study suggests that following AICR recommendations for prevention years before diagnosis can prolong survival for those who do develop colorectal cancer. And every recommendation followed decreased the risk of dying a little more.

    The study was published in BMC Medicine.

      canstockphoto2174868Following at least two healthy behaviors that are key AICR Recommendations, such as eating a healthy diet and being active, lowers the risk of colorectal cancer to some degree, with the more you follow the lower the risk, suggests a new study that highlights the importance of practicing multiple healthy behaviors.

      Published in BMC Medicine, the study joins a growing body of independent research that investigates how AICR Recommendations for Cancer Prevention link to reduced risk of specific cancers, survivors, and mortality. Here are some of those other studies.

      This latest study was conducted among 350,000 Europeans ages 25 to 70. They are part of the large European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC), which spans 10 countries. When people joined EPIC they gave information about their diet, smoking, activity and other lifestyle habits. Read more… “New Study: More Healthy Habits to Prevent Colorectal Cancer”
