Study Finds Low-Fat Diet Reduces Risk of Dying From Breast Cancer

Study Finds Low-Fat Diet Reduces Risk of Dying From Breast Cancer The long-term study of over 48,000 postmenopausal women has found that diet plays a key role in how cancer responds to treatment.

The study was initiated by the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) in 1993 and required participants to aim for a low-fat diet and track their meals.

The women were followed for 20 years, with almost 20,000 participants carefully logging what they ate for an eight year span.

An analysis of the data has found that those who stuck to low-fat, plant-based diets were at a 20 percent lower risk of dying from breast cancer.

Doctors believe that a healthy diet can positively influence the treatment process, as obesity is a major risk factor for at least 13 different types of cancer.

However, the study did not reveal that diet decreases the overall risk of breast cancer.
