High calorie diets and colon cancer

Diet and exercise


It has long been argued that high calorie diets were more likely to result in colon cancer than low calorie consumers. Now the Lancet Oncology provides puzzling data on a 10-year study of 148 colon cancer patients. Apparently 88 per cent of patients who had previously had high calorie diets survived 5 years whereas only 64 per cent of those who had previously had a low calorie diet.

This conflicts with research evidence that those on high calorie diets are more likely to get the disease in the first place, whilst low calorie diets are known to boost the immune system!
