Diet: The New Medicine Against Cancer !

On October 31st,  ABC News reported that after five years of reviewing 7,000 medical studies, a team of top scientists from around the world have proven a link between diet/ weight and cancer.

The researchers cite "convincing" evidence that excess body fat can cause six different types of common cancers, including those affecting the breast, bowel and pancreas.

The research, which also links consumption of alcohol, red meat and processed meat to an increased risk of cancer, has spurred debate among nutrition experts over whether the conclusions of the report are particularly earth-shattering.

"It should come as no real surprise that excess body fat is associated with cancer, as one additional chronic disease associated with obesity, since many dietary factors that protect against cancer are probably absent in the diet of an overweight or obese person," said Daniel Hoffman, assistant professor of nutritional sciences at Rutgers University in Newark, N.J.

According to Dr. David Katz, director of the Prevention Research Center at Yale University in New Haven, Conn., the report was not new information, but adds to a wealth of existing data.

Here are the New Diet Recommendations:

Limit body fat. Your body mass index should be between 18.5 to 24.9. Weight around the waist is most dangerous.

Limit red meat to 2.5 ounces a day. An additional 1.7 ounces a day increases cancer risk by 15 percent. That means an 8 ounce steak or a quarter-pound hamburger would be the limit for a week.

Limit alcohol to two drinks a day for men, one drink a day for women.

Limit salt intake to 2 grams a day. That's about a teaspoon a day, instead of the teaspoon and a half that most people eat. To give you an idea of how much salt is in food — just one cup of cottage cheese has half the salt you should eat in a day: half a teaspoon. Processed foods are almost always higher in salt.

Get nutrients from whole foods, not vitamin supplements.

Mothers should breast-feed children
