A multisite study that included UC Davis has found diet and breast cancer recurrence are not linked.
"" ""

A multisite study that included UC Davis has found that a diet very high in fruit, vegetables and fiber in women with breast cancer did not decrease the risk of cancer recurrence. Published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the study of more than 3,000 women, followed for about seven years, showed no significant change between those eating a diet high in fiber, fruit and vegetables and low in fat to those using the "five-a-day" diet. Epidemiologist Ellen Gold, the UC Davis study investigator, said that further study will determine if the dietary intervention is more helpful in certain subgroups.
