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”

    Lycopene lowering prostate cancer risk – ways to eat your lycopene

    A new study presented today at AICR’s 25th Research Conference suggests that lycopene-containing foods may lower prostate cancer risk. That would be good news for cancer risk, but also because these foods provide an abundance of nutrients, like vitamins C, A and other phytochemicals.

    Americans get lycopene mostly from tomatoes and tomato products like sauce, juice and pizza. But try other delicious choices like red and pink grapefruit, red carrots, papaya, guava and watermelon.

    Although evidence isn’t strong enough overall to say foods with lycopene lower prostate cancer risk, AICR is working to tease apart how food and other lifestyle factors affect different types of this cancer. In the meantime, eating more of these foods contributes to an overall cancer-protective diet.

      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”
