Women can reduce their risk for womb cancer by eating a Mediterranean diet
the ONA take:
An Italian research team has found that women who eat a Mediterranean diet reduce their risk of womb cancer (endometrial cancer) by more than half.
The researchers reviewed the diets of more than 5,000 women, and measured how the women followed each of nine different components of a Mediterranean diet.
The components included eating lots of vegetables, fruits and nuts, pulses, cereals and potatoes, fish, monounsaturated fats but little meat, milk and other dairy products, and moderate alcohol intake.
The women who adhered most closely to diet reduced their risk by the greatest percentage. Following seven to nine of the components reduced risk of womb cancer by 57%, following six components reduced risk by 46%, and following five components reduced risk by 34%. Following fewer than five components did not significantly reduce a woman’s risk for womb cancer.
Women who eat a Mediterranean diet reduce their risk of womb cancer (endometrial cancer) by more than half.
