Cancer Diet

Anti-Cancer Diet

The main cancer diet guidelines, according to the 1997 report "Food, Nutrition and the Prevention of Cancer: a global perspective," published by World Cancer Research Fund, are as follows:

Cancer Diet Guidelines

1. A cancer protecting diet should include mostly foods of plant origin, like vegetables and fruits, together with pulses like beans and lentils, plus cereals, bread and potatoes (or rice, pasta).

  • Eat 5 or more portions of fruit & vegetables, every day. (A portion = 80g / 3oz.)
  • Eat 7+ portions of cereals, legumes, starchy-type foods and other plant food, every day.
  • Choose wholegrain or 'brown' varieties, like brown bread, brown rice and brown pasta.

2. A cancer protecting diet should include less meat, especially red meat

  • Switch to fish and free range poultry.
  • Eat no more than 3oz of red meat (beef, pork, lamb) per day.
  • Avoid smoked, barbecued and heavily processed meat, as some dietary tests show them to be carcinogenic.

3. A cancer protecting diet should include less fat

  • Choose low fat options.
  • Cook with less fat - don't fry, instead grill, boil, bake or roast.
  • Use oils which are low in saturated fat. Do not overheat.

High fat diets may increase the risk of cancers of the breast, lung, colon, prostate and rectum. Also they tend to cause people to put on weight and become obese. Unfortunately, obesity increases the risk of cancer of the breast, womb and kidney.

4. A cancer protecting diet should include less alcohol

  • If consumed at all, limit alcoholic drinks to less than 2 drinks/day (men) or 1/day (women).
  • 1 drink = 8 grams of alcohol - i.e. 1/2 pint beer, one glass of wine - 8 glasses per bottle - or 1 spirit measure.

Alcohol increases the risk of cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, colon and liver. Alcohol may also increase the risk of breast cancer.

Advice on Diets

Special diets or diet plans with special diet foods are sometimes needed for particular health conditions. Ask your doctor, dietitian or nutritionist about your personal dietary needs. Otherwise, a balanced diet program containing foods from all the nutritional food groups is best.
