Diet May Influence Ovarian Cancer Survival

According to a new study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, a good diet before diagnosis is linked with lower mortality among ovarian cancer survivors.

Researchers analyzed data from 636 cases of ovarian cancer among postmenopausal women within the Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study or Clinical Trials from 1993 to 1998. The authors concluded that self-reported dietary quality at least 12 months prior to diagnosis was associated with a statistically significant 27% lower risk of death after ovarian cancer.
