Ovarian Cancer Diet: Healthy Diet Helps Survival
Written by Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy - March 12, 2010
Ovarian cancer survivors who were eating healthy diets before diagnosis may have longer survival
This study evaluated the diets of 351 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Each participant reported their usual dietary intake over the three to five
years prior to their diagnosis.
A plant based diet recommended for cancer prevention was linked with improved survival. Higher total fruit
and vegetable consumption, and higher vegetable consumption alone led to a survival advantage. Further analysis
showed only yellow and cruciferous vegetables significantly favor survival.
Consuming higher intake of less-healthy meats (including hot dogs, hamburgers and bacon) was associated with a
shorter survival time. The consumption of all dairy products decreased survival time.

patterns are associated with length of survival from epithelial ovarian cancer. Dolecek TA, McCarthy BJ, et al.
