Nutrition Rounds: Hot Topics in Nutrition & Cancer - Diet and Breast Cancer Survivorship

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in both the developed and the developing world. With improved diagnostics and treatment, women are being diagnosed earlier and not only surviving but also surviving longer. The role of lifestyle factors in improving survival rates is a relatively new but active area of research. A growing body of evidence is increasing our understanding of what lifestyle choices may help reduce a recurrence or death from breast cancer.

The World Cancer Research Fund International’s Continuous Update Project report on breast cancer survivors is the most rigorous, systematic analysis of research on cancer prevention and survivorship through diet, weight, and physical activity. This scientific resource informs current guidelines and policy on cancer prevention and survival globally.

Join a panel of experts who contributed to the latest report on lifestyle factors and breast cancer survivorship published in October 2022 in the International Journal of Cancer.
