Long-term researchers have established that death rates occasioned by chronic breast cancers can be cut down to 70% when patients cut down on weight loss by a minimum 5lb, and consume diets that reduce the fatality potentials of their cancers.
About 2,400 women were tested and watched for weight loss cuts over a 10-year period, and it was discovered that death rates were cut down by 70% among even women with the deadliest cancers so long they had lost weight.
Tracking thousands of women over two decades, the Women’s Intervention Nutrition Study found out that changes in diets would greatly reduce the likelihood of breast cancer recurrence after the women had initially gone through some breast cancer treatments.
Divided into two groups, some women were placed on a low-fat diet; and they were found to have lower death rates over the next 20 years after they were able to maintain weight loss cuts of 6lb over a five year period. About 20% of the women that had breast cancers not linked to any hormonal problems experienced the greater results of death cuts. This group even involve patients with triple negative cancers as well as those with BRCA1 – resulting from a faulty gene – as the one that made Angelina Jolie to undergo double mastectomy.
70% death rate reduction was observed in women that lost a minimum 5lb over 10 years, and death incidents were halved even 20 years after.
The director of research at Genesis breast cancer prevention charity, Professor Tony Howell, states that “A 69 per cent reduction in deaths in a group with few alternative treatments – that’s as good as any drug. For 20 per cent of women, this is as effective as chemotherapy.”
Diets with reduced calories and natural fibers targeted at a 6lb weight loss goal over a number of years ensures that women with breast cancers have their fatality rates cut down by 50% to 70%.
