Diet & Exercise Helps Survivors Cut Cancer Risk

The American Cancer Society recently acknowledged the mounting evidence that diet and exercise can help cancer survivors manage, beat and stay free of their disease as well. In what has been characterized as an “explosion of research” on the topic, guidelines were established based upon more than 100 studies released since 2006.

The key recommendations are:

  • Get regular aerobic and resistance exercise;
  • Eat a diet low in red meat and saturated fats, and high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains;
  • Use other weight-management strategies, such as portion control, to reach and maintain a healthy weight.

Survivors should incorporate these recommendations into their daily lives as soon as possible.

While cancer survivors also generally report using supplements at higher rates than the general population, the American Cancer Society says, don’t use them. While there is no evidence that supplements help cancer survivors, there is mounting evidence that some supplements can actually promote cancer growth and even interfere with treatment. For example, antioxidants taken in megadoses may counteract chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Given the risks, discuss supplements with your doctor and follow their recommendation. But get your nutrition from food.
