HIGH-fat diet doesn't up skin cancer risk

Post by Mysterygirl80 on Tue Jun 24, 2008 4:38 pm

The notion that diet may infulence the risk of developing skin cancer seems not to hold up under investigation,Australian researchers report.According to their study in the journal BMC Center,high levels of dietary fat do not increase-and may decrease-the risk of skin cancer."While our study is intriguing,and is in agreement with some other very large studies,we could not suggest that the public's health would be enhanced by consuming more fat," Dr.Robert H.Granger from Menzies Research Institue,Hobart."Even if every study consistently showed that higher levels of fat intake were protective of skin cancer,there are enough negative health outcomes associated with high fat intake which far offset any supposed advantages,"he added.Granger and his colleagues investigated,for the first time,the association between dietary fat and the risk of skin cancer in a population-based study of 652 patients with skin cancer and 471 "controls".Who did not."Our results us by surprise,as our working hypotheses related to the finding from the only dietary intervention study which showed that decreased fat consumption led to a slight decreased risk of skin cancer.

Yes. At least one-third of cancer deaths each year are linked to a poor diet, along with obesity and inactivity. Of course, nothing can guarantee that you won't get cancer, but next to quitting smoking, eating a healthy diet is one of the best things you can do to tip the odds in your favor.
