A new study has been published providing evidence that a diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein may help slow tumour growth.
Our study, herein, shows that a high amylose containing low CHO, high protein diet reduces BG, insulin, and glycolysis, slows tumor growth, reduces tumor incidence, and works additively with existing therapies without weight loss or kidney failure. Such a diet, therefore, has the potential of being both a novel cancer prophylactic and treatment, warranting further investigation of its applicability in the clinic, especially in combination with existing therapies.
Previous studies have also suggested a link between a carbohydrate-rich diet and prostate cancer.
- A Low-carb Diet May Stunt Prostate Tumor Growth.
- Carbohydrate Restriction May Slow Prostate Tumor Growth.
- High Carb Diet Linked to Prostate Tumor Growth.
Do we start advocating the prostate cancer diet?
