Lower-fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and grains may lower risk of death from breast cancer

The Washington Post (5/15, McGinley) reports that in “the latest analysis of the federally funded Women’s Health Initiative,” researchers found that “women who followed a lower-fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables and grains had a lower risk of dying from breast cancer than those on a higher-fat diet.” The findings are scheduled to be presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s annual meeting.
