A diet low in fat reduced the incidence of death after breast cancer, according to a recent trial in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
The 48 835 postmenopausal women trial participants with normal mammogram results and without prior breast cancer were randomly assigned to a diet aimed at reducing fat intake (to 20% of total calories) and increasing fruit, vegetable, and grain consumption or assigned to a usual diet.
