Positive Lifestyle Changes Can Keep Cancer From Progressing

Diet & Exercise Reduces Risk of Aggressive Prostate Tumors

Prostate cancer patients who adhered to eight lifestyle recommendations of the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) significantly reduced their risk of developing aggressive forms of the disease in a study published by researchers at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC). Study subject who adhered to three or less WCRF recommendations had a predicted 38 percent increased risk of aggressive tumors compared to those men who adhered to four or more lifestyle recommendations. WCRF recommendations included information on desirable body mass index (BMI), exercise, low-caloric density foods, fruits and non-starchy vegetables, and consumption of red and processed meats. The study was published online in the Nutrition and Cancer Journal.  The study was led by Lenore Arab, Ph.D.,  JCCC member and professor in the departments of Medicine and biological chemistry.
