The adherence of eight new World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) lifestyle recommendations has been found to significantly reduce the risk of developing highly aggressive prostate cancer.
The study, published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer, was carried out by researchers at UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC).
The eight lifestyle recommendations that the WCRF made encouraged physical activity and the consumption of healthy foods low in caloric density (under 125 kilocalories per 100 grams of food).
The research team, led by Lenore Arab, PhD, JCCC member and professor in the departments of medicine and biological chemistry, set out to determine what impact adherence to the recommendations had on highly aggressive prostate cancer risk.
