Today, AICR is releasing the Continuous Update Project (CUP) report Diet, Nutrition, Physical Activity and Breast Cancer Survivors in the US. This report is the most rigorous, in-depth, systematic global review to date of the scientific research currently available on breast cancer survivors and the lifestyle factors affecting their survival.
In partnership with AICR, the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) International has published this Continuous Update Project (CUP) report, which found indications of links between survival and:
• A healthy body weight
• Being physically active
• Eating foods containing fiber and soy
• A lower intake of fat, particularly saturated fat
The CUP analysis includes 85 separate studies of 164,416 women and highlights growing evidence of links between a healthy BMI, physical activity, diet and all-cause mortality, breast cancer mortality, and subsequent primary breast cancer incidence.
Today’s report found some evidence suggesting that women who eat more foods containing fiber and soy may have a lower risk of dying following a diagnosis of breast cancer, and women eating a diet high in fat and saturated fat may have increased risk of dying following a diagnosis of breast cancer. However, these findings are not yet strong enough to merit making specific recommendations for breast cancer survivors.
This research is important because there are over 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. Every year, more than 232,000 U.S. women are diagnosed with the disease. Increasing numbers of women are surviving as methods of diagnosis and treatment improve.
Today's report on breast cancer survivors – the first CUP report to look at survivorship – has not changed AICR's advice to the survivor community: after treatment, breast cancer survivors should follow AICR’s 10 Recommendations for Cancer Prevention, as guided by their health care professional.
