A recent study following 1,500 breast cancer survivors for nearly 18 years supported the association between the risk of cancer-related mortality and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) found in grilled, barbecued, and smoked meat.
An extensive review of 29 publications including over 800,000 participants associates total nut consumption with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and all-cause mortality.
A study published in JAMA Oncology that reviewed the health records of over 40,000 women showed that even women with elevated genetic risk for breast cancer can significantly lower their odds of getting the disease by adopting healthy lifestyle behaviors.
