Diet, nutrition, physical activity and prostate cancer / breast cancer survivorship

The World Cancer Research Fund International has just released two new reports: Diet, nutrient, physical activity and breast cancer survivors and Diet, nutrient, physical activity and prostate cancer.
 

Breast cancer survivorship – Recommendations

  1. Maintain a healthy body weight
  2. Be physically active
  3. Eat foods containing fibre
  4. Eat foods containing soy
  5. Lower intake of total fat, and in particular, saturated fats.
  • Women who exercise have a greater chance of surviving breast cancer.
  • Women who eat more foods containing fibre have a lower risk of dying of breast cancer
  • Women who consume a high animal fat diet before developing breast cancer has an increased risk of dying from the disease.

Prostate cancer

There is strong evidence that being overweight or obese increases the risk of advanced prostate cancer.
 
There is less strong evidence to support that a higher consumptions of dairy products increases the risk of prostate cancer (we recommend avoiding milk and yellow cheeses and use fermented dairy products and products made from goat’s or sheep milk).
 
Low levels of vitamin E and selenium and high levels of calcium may also be risk factors.
Recommendations
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Exercise: must be weight bearing, high impact to protect against bone loss due to anti-hormone medication.
  • Eat a healthy diet (we recommend a Mediterranean, predominantly plant-based diet).
