Attention all breast cancer sufferers: New study shows that adopting a low-fat diet can reduce your risk of death

by , 05 May 2015

Your doctor always tells you that the best thing you can do for your body is to eat healthy, clean and cut out fats.

And he's gone on and on about it now that your body is fighting breast cancer.

Have you been listening? You've probably tried. After all, you know how important it is to give your immune system exactly what it needs to win the fight.

Now studies are showing that eating a low-fat diet is even more important than your doctor thinks.

According to new research out of UCLA's Medical Center, cutting down on fats can reduce your risk of dying of breast cancer.

So, if you know you're eating more fried foods and sweet treats than you should be, stop… Immediately! Here's why…

New research proves that a low-fat diet can be greatly beneficial for breast cancer sufferers

Dr Rowan Chlebowski, a medical oncologist at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, recently led a study with some remarkable results.
It involved more than 2,400 women aged 48 to 79who’d all had early stage breast cancer and received treatment between 1994 and 2001.
He wanted to confirm his suspicion that what you eat can increase your lifespan if you’re battling with breast cancer.

And that’s exactly what he found...
About half of the women followed low-fat diets. They received nutrition counselling and had to keep track of their fat intake. The researchers made unannounced calls annually to request 24-hour fat-intake records. 
The remaining half of women didn’t receive counselling and didn’t have to follow a low-fat diet.
Not  the women in the low-fat group reduced their fat intake by almost 10% total calories. They also lost an average of 2.7kg, the study authors noted. But it’s what it did for their breast cancer survival rate that really impressed reserachers. 
When Dr Chlebowski looked at all the women in the low-fat group  and compared them to those who didn’t lower fat intake, he found that the rate of dying of breast cancer was lower in the low-fat group — 14% versus 17%. 
Although only a 3% difference, he said it’s statistically significant nonetheless.

The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...
I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.
Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!
That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").

Following a low fat diet reduces inflammation, which decreases cancer growth

Dr Chlebowski can’t explain why the low-fat diet helped. However, he reckons it’s because the diet and weight loss reduces inflammation. 
And as we all know, reduced inflammation slows down cancer growth. 
Commenting on the findings, Dr David Heber, founding director of the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition, said: “It was the first study of its kind that got women over a long period of time to follow a low-fat diet to influence outcomes in breast cancer patients.”

The bottom line: Cut calories where you can to avoid prematurely dying of breast cancer

Based on this and other studies, Heber said his advice for all breast cancer patients is to reduce calories from fat to 20% or 25% of all calories, and to focus on healthy fats, such as omega-3s found in fish such as eggs, peanut butter, salmon, and so on.
Dr Anees Chagpar, associate professor of surgery at the Yale School of Medicine, said the study findings suggest that reducing dietary fat is a relatively simple way to possibly reduce the risk of premature death in women with breast cancer.
So, ladies, if you have breast cancer, slash your fat intake right away. It won’t only reduce your risk of dying of breast cancer – it’ll bring other benefits like keeping your heart healthy and assisting with weight loss, too.
