10-Year Study Shows Plant-Based Diet Slashes Cancer Risk

A study of more than 26,000 participants has researchers interested in the long-term benefits of a vegan diet.

A recently published decade-long study has shown that a vegan diet can reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer by 33 percent. More than 26,000 participants were tracked during a 10-year span for what is being labeled as the first major study to look specifically at vegans, study director Gary Fraser said. Published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the study divided dietary patterns into meat-eaters, vegans, lacto-vegetarians, pesco-vegetarians, and semi-vegetarians and “found that, as far as prostate cancer, the vegans look really good,” Fraser told The Press Enterprise, going on to call the results impressive and statistically significant. Further research will be conducted into vegan diets and its correlation with lowered cancer risks.
