Three Nuts May Cut the Risk of Colon Cancer Recurrence and Death

Eating just 2 ounces of three nuts weekly may lower the risk of cancer recurrence for patients who have been treated for stage III colon cancer according to the conclusions of a new study from the United States. Moreover, the study says that it could even halve the risk of death for such patients.nuts cut the risk of colon cancer recurrence

For the research, a team of scientists has analyzed the data of 826 patients with stage III colon cancer. They were asked to complete a dietary questionnaire. The risk of colon cancer recurrence was 46% lower in those patients who consumed at least 2 ounces of three nuts every week. The risk of death was 53% lower for those patients. Three nuts included cashew nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, and pecans.

Dr. Fadelu, a leader of the study, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA, explains: “Ultimately, we need to understand how nuts confer this protective effect, as well as possibly conduct a randomized, controlled clinical trial where diet recommendations are given at the start of the study to prove that tree nuts can reduce recurrence and death after treatment for colon cancer.”
