Fatty Diets Linked to Cancer and Early Death

November 13, 2013

Diets high in saturated fats and sugar may increase your risk of death from gastrointestinal cancers, including stomach and esophageal, according to a presentation at the American Institute for Cancer Research Annual Research Conference. Researchers observed 10,525 men and women from the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study for 16 years and asked them to keep diet records. Participants with diets higher in fat and sugar were four times more likely to develop and 53 percent more likely to die from these cancer, compared with those who consumed plant-based diets.
