People with diets that promote inflammation — such as those high in sugar and saturated fats — are at increased risk for early death from all causes, including gastrointestinal tract cancers, a new study suggests. Gastrointestinal tract cancers include cancers of the esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum. Watching your sugar and saturated fat diet is more important than just those with diabetes. Anyone can have a systemic inflammatory condition. Systemic inflammatory conditions can be given a wide variety of names, from irritable bowl syndrome to fibromyalgia.
“Studies have shown that diet can modify inflammation, and inflammation can drive the growth of many cancers, such as colorectal cancer,” study co-author Susan Steck, an associate professor at the University of South Carolina, said in a news release from the American Institute for Cancer Research. Taking care of the inflammed condition will go a long ways to preventing cancer growths. Diet and exercise are always good even for those in excellent health. specific dietary changes are necessary for those who are starting to show symptoms. Eat more greens, reds, and yellow foods.
This new study included more than 10,500 people who were followed from 1987 through 2003. By the end of that time, more than 250 of the participants had died, including 30 from gastrointestinal tract cancers. The importance of keeping your sugar level down, and your good nutrition is vital, but is more important when you are already feeling the symptoms is something to help clear the system of the inflammation, thus giving you a fresh start.
Those with diets most strongly associated with inflammation were 53 percent more likely to die early from all causes than those with the most anti-inflammatory diets. The risk of death from gastrointestinal tract cancers was four times higher among people with diets most likely to cause inflammation than among those with the most anti-inflammatory diets, such as plant-based diets.
The findings were presented Nov. 7 at the annual meeting of the American Institute for Cancer Research, in Bethesda, Md. The data and conclusions of the study should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
“This study adds support to the recommendations to consume a more anti-inflammatory diet, rich in plant-based foods that contain numerous anti-inflammatory nutrients and phytochemicals,” study lead author Fred Tabung, a doctoral candidate in epidemiology at the University of South Carolina, said in the news release. One of the best products I have found that works wonders for inflamed conditions is Nutri West’s Total Inflamm. Many of my patient’s have loved the results, and so can you. Try it today and see the results. Those vague uneasy discomforts can be something of the past. Follow this link
“Due to the small number of gastrointestinal tract cancers in our study, our finding needs to be confirmed in larger … studies,” Tabung said. This research also showed only an association between inflammation-associated diets and risk of early death. It did not necessarily prove a cause-and-effect link. So now is the time to do something about this before it gets worse.
