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”

    New Research, Exercise is Safe, Helpful for Breast and Prostate Cancer Patients

    By Posted on Leave a comment on New Research, Exercise is Safe, Helpful for Breast and Prostate Cancer Patients

    Back in 2010, the American College of Sports Medicine put out new guidelines for cancer survivors when it comes to being active. The main gist: avoid inactivity and aim for the government guidelines of 150 minutes a week.

    But the field of exercise and those undergoing cancer treatment is relatively new, and the experts said more research is needed. It’s important for the growing population of cancer survivors – now 15.5 million and growing quickly – and their loved ones.

    Now comes a new study from researchers at Ohio State that shows exercise is indeed safe and provides improvement for breast and prostate cancer patients. The scientists presented their research at our conference. You can read more about it hereRead more… “New Research, Exercise is Safe, Helpful for Breast and Prostate Cancer Patients”

      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”
