Useful fat-based diet helpful in fighting skin cancer

A study suggests that using a useful fat-based diet can help fight cancer.


A diet based on fruits, vegetables and whole grains along with olive oil, nuts and fish has many health benefits in itself.

Researchers from the University Medical Center Groningen in the UK and the Netherlands examined the diets of 91 patients with skin cancer.

Research has shown that this diet makes the immune system more effective in patients against skin cancer.

Patients who ate the above diet and consumed the medicationwere more likely to survive and become progression-free after 12 months of treatment. Progression-free period is the period during treatment or after treatment in which the disease is present in the patient but the condition of the disease does not worsen.

The study’s author and nutritionist Lara Bolt, from the University Medical Center Groningen, said that this study appreciates the role of dietary strategy in improving the patient’s disease and survival.

The research found that not only did the drug have a better effect on those who ate the above diet, but after one year there was no deterioration in their condition.
