Another study adds further backing to the belief that the Mediterranean diet as one of the healthiest around. Researchers have discovered that closely following the Mediterranean diet can reduce the risk of endometrial cancer by up to 57%, Medical News Today reported on May 27.
The study involved 5,000 women picked from different areas in Italy and Switzerland and an analysis of data from 1983 to 2006. The study also divided the Mediterranean diet into nine categories: high intake of vegetables, fruits and nuts, legumes, cereals and potatoes, fish, and monosaturated fats; moderate intake of alcohol; and low intake of meat, and dairy products.
Researchers found that those who strictly adhered with the consumption reduced their risk of endometrial cancer by 57%. On the other hand, those who followed seven and six of the nine categories reduced their risk by 46% and 34%, respectively.
Unfortunately, the risk of endometrial cancer may increase after undergoing a hysterectomy involving a power morcellator.
