Low-Fat Diet Reduces Mortality After Breast Cancer

JAMA. 2017;318(12):1099. doi:10.1001/jama.2017.14116

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.
