People vs. Cancer

12 Feb

How smarter prevention is helping more Americans beat the odds of getting cancer.

Eat Mediterranean:  There’s one more reason to load up on whole grains, fruits and vegetables, nuts and beans, olive oil and lean protein like fish.

A Mediterranean-style eating plan has been shown to protect against several types of cancer, including colon, prostate, stomach, esophageal, liver and endometrial cancers, according to a recent Current Nutrition Reports review.

And in postmenopausal women, a Dutch study found that it could slash the risk for certain breast cancers by up to 40%

The cancer-fighting effect might be thanks to what’s not on the diet as well as what’s on it, says Jennifer McDaniel, RD, co-author of Prevention Mediterranean Table. Eating fewer processed grains, like white bread and rice, and less red meat and full-fat dairy could support a healthy body weight and lower inflammation levels, which can also help prevent some cancers, she says.
