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.
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.”
