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 times. 

Ovarian cancer diet: Increase your yellow and cruciferous vegetables. 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.
