Strict diet ‘cuts breast cancer risk by 40%’
Those who follow a strict diet for just two days a week can cut their risk of developing breast cancer by 40 per cent, a study has suggested.
Researchers from the Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Centre at the University Hospital of South Manchester (UHSM) studied 100 overweight women.
Pamela Goldberg, chief executive of the Breast Cancer Campaign, said: "There are many breast cancer risk factors that can't be controlled, such as age, gender and family history – but staying at a healthy weight is one positive step that can be taken."
People hoping to lose fat rather than muscle should ensure that they get around 8.5 hours of sleep each night, a recent study by the University of Chicago's Sleep Research Laboratory suggested.
