An Unwanted Journey: Day 0627 - Prudence

A recent study has reported that a prudent diet can decrease substantially the chance of local recurrence of colorectal cancer. Researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and Harvard Medical School have demonstrated that a prudent diet of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, poultry and fish and which avoids red meat, refined grains, sweets, desserts and French fries is the way to go. Those who chose a more typical Western diet, when tracked over 5 years, had a recurrence rate 3 times higher than those enjoying a prudent diet.
