***LATEST MEDICAL UPDATE ON CANCER PREVENTION*
There is a new focus on the prevention of cancer, and the World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) have updated their lifestyle recommendations to prevent cancer.
It confirms recent results from a new study published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology that concludes being overweight (or obesity) is a cause of at least 12 cancers, as follows: liver, ovarian, prostate (advanced), stomach (cardia), oropharyngeal, colorectal, breast (postmenopausal), gallbladder, kidney, esophageal adenocarcinoma, pancreatic, and endometrial.
Our 10 recommendations form a blueprint for healthy living to reduce the risk of cancer.
The guidelines focus on 10 core elements that, taken together, should markedly reduce the risk for cancer among individuals.
Recommendations to prevent cancer start with maintaining a healthy weight. Many cancers have been linked to overweight and obesity, and even high-normal body mass index values may be associated with an increased risk for cancer.
The next recommendation focuses on physical activity. The authors endorse recommendations from the World Health Organization for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes of high-intensity, physical activity per week among adults. These are minimum requirements, and more exercise is probably more effective in the prevention of cancer.
The recommendations encourage a diet with high consumption of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and beans. Phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables have been demonstrated to have anticancer effects in cell and animal studies.
The goal for total fiber intake should be at least 30 g/day, with at least 5 servings of nonstarchy fruits and vegetables per day.
Conversely, the consumption of red meat and processed meat is strongly discouraged. Heterocyclic amines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons formed when meat is cooked at high temperatures have mutagenic potential, and foods that contain high amounts of salt, such as processed meat, can harm the lining of the stomach and lead to colonization with Helicobacter pylori.
Consumption of red meat should be limited to 3 times per week (350-500 g/week), at most.
Alcohol consumption is discouraged, and even modest levels of drinking alcohol may increase the risk for cancer. Acetaldehyde, a metabolite of alcohol oxidation, can be carcinogenic. Alcohol can also raise levels of circulating estradiol.
Individuals should limit their consumption of foods with high levels of fat, starch, or sugar, including fast food, most processed foods, snacks, bakery goods, and candy.
Sugar-sweetened beverages are to be avoided because of their association with obesity.
The use of supplements to prevent cancer is discouraged. A healthy diet as described here is the best means to reduce the risk for cancer.
The recommendations also advise all new mothers to breastfeed their baby, if possible. Breastfeeding is protective against breast cancer, and it reduces the risk for childhood obesity.
Patients with a history of cancer should also follow the above recommendations to the degree that they are able.
