When it comes to lowering breast cancer risk for older women, the research is clear that both physical activity and staying a healthy weight play an important role. Evidence also suggests — but is not as strong — that these factors may improve survival after diagnosis of breast cancer.
Men who eat plenty of plant foods, stay a healthy weight, and follow more of AICR’s Cancer Prevention Recommendations have a lower risk of developing colorectal cancer compared to men who follow fewer of them, according to a new study that suggests possible gender differences in lifestyle factors and risk of this cancer.
A new paper offers guidance to researchers who are studying how following cancer prevention recommendations affect cancer risk and survival. The paper, just published in the journal Nutrients, proposes the first standardized scoring system for the AICR/WCRF Cancer Prevention Recommendations and was led by researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), in collaboration with AICR/WCRF and researchers in Europe.Read more… “Adherence Matters – Standardized Scoring for AICR/WCRF Cancer Prevention Recommendations”
