Fiber in Diet May Improve Survival in Patients with Colorectal Cancer
A new study, published in JAMA Oncology, finds that higher fiber intake may help improve survival for patients in the early stages of colorectal cancer.
For the study, a team of researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, US, included the data of 1,575 individuals who were part of the Nurses’ Health Study or the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study. Having analyzed the data, they found that every 5-gram increase in fiber per day was linked to a 22% reduction in colorectal cancer-specific mortality and a 14% reduction in all-cause mortality.
The scientists concluded in their study: “Higher intake of fiber and whole grains after a colorectal cancer diagnosis is associated with a lower rate of death from that disease and other causes. Our findings provide support for the nutritional recommendations of maintaining sufficient fiber intake among CRC survivors.”
