I watch for research news on breast cancer, treatments, etc., and frequently see interesting articles. There is a topic on BCO called "Breaking Research News from Breastcancer.org." One of the moderators suggested that another topic might be appropriate for posting links and synopses of reports on research found elsewhere. So here it is! Please post links to reports on research form reliable sources. Thanks for sharing!

Study: Eating nuts improves survival rate in breast cancer

A study in the International Journal of Cancer found that breast cancer survivors who consumed more than one-half ounce of nuts a week had 94% five-year survival and disease-free survival rates, while those who didn't consume nuts regularly only had an 89% five-year survival rate and an 86% disease-free survival rate. The findings also revealed that 94% of the participants who ate nuts regularly did not report return of their breast cancer within half a decade of recovery.

{Golly. That's a plus. The study only evaluated 5 years and notes that long term study is needed. Free access to both reporting and to the journal article. (I don't know why it's still underlining....) }

I love nuts but they are expensive and not very filling despite being highly caloric. They're basically dessert for health-concscious fancy people.

My first impulse was that nuts are standing here as a proxy for socio-economic status and it was interesting to me that when they adjusted by income, nuts actually made no impact on overall survival.

Only a 1/2 oz of nuts a week isn't much. I've been eating 2 tblsp a week for some time & it has helped lower my cholesterol. Of course almonds & pistachios are better for you than cashew nuts. And naturally un-salted are better too. Sometimes they are dessert, but just as often I throw them in a salad.
