Dr. Aesun Shin, who is an associate professor of preventive medicine at Seoul National University College of Medicine in South Korea and an author of this study, says eating a serving of nuts a few or more times a week appeared to have a dramatic effect on colon cancer risk.

When researchers looked only at tree nut consumption, the chance of recurrence was 46% lower and the chance of death was 53% lower for those who ate at least two ounces per week, compared to people who did not eat nuts.

These preliminary findings jibe with those of a second trial.

These health conditions represent a state of excess energy and are each associated with a higher risk of recurrence and death from colon cancer.

Although the study proves that a healthy lifestyle reduces colon cancer death risk, Daniel F. Hayes, president of American Society of Clinical Oncology or ASCO, remarked that treatment is necessary to counter colon cancer.

It has been reported by Live Science that there is an association between consuming nuts and a lower risk of getting colon cancer. He's chief clinical research officer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Correspondent Martha Teichner talks with Dr. Marga... Once you get cancer, it's not too late to adopt these. "It makes a difference".

One of the scariest things that can happen to a person is developing cancer.

The data collected during the trial contained testimonies of patients with Stage III colorectal cancer, collected with the help of questionnaires during and after the completion of a chemotherapy regimen.

Eating over 50 grammes of tree nuts such as almonds, walnuts and cashews every week can more than halve the risk of death from colon cancer, a new study has found. Researchers at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in the U.S. studied 826 patients with stage 3 colon cancer, who consumed two ounces or more of nuts per week.

The researchers stress that regular peanuts and peanut butter did not show any benefit.

Peanuts actually fall within the legume category and are cousin to well-known legumes such as peas, beans and lentils, Fadelu noted. When the researchers factored in moderate alcohol consumption to their analysis, then the colon cancer death risk further reduced by 15 percent.

Tree nuts contain high amounts of healthy fatty acids, fiber and flavonoids.

There has been an established association between dietary factors and colon cancer. Researchers surveyed nearly 1,000 patients about their lifestyles, scoring them against recommendations in the American Cancer Society's Nutrition and Physical Activity Guidelines for Cancer Survivors.

Half were followed up to seven years, and half longer.

"If our interventions are acceptable and useful to patients, we will test their impact on risk of cancer recurrence and mortality in future studies", Blarigan added.

Eating nuts should not be considered a substitute for standard chemotherapy and other treatments for colon cancer, experts said.

"That's a very risky interpretation, and that's not what we're trying to get across", said Hayes, who is clinical director of breast oncology at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. "We understand that, but chemotherapy clearly saves lives", Hayes explained.
