Inflammatory Potential of Diet and Risk of Cancer Mortality in Women (2015)

Title:

Inflammatory Potential of Diet and Risk of Cancer Mortality in Women

Key words:

Research Institution:

South Carolina Research Foundation

Location:

Researcher:

Susan Steck

Project Description:

Dr. Steck�s group developed a dietary inflammatory index to assess the overall quality of diet with regard to its inflammation potential and recently found that people who reported a high pro-inflammatory diet prior to cancer diagnosis were at increased risk of gastrointestinal tract cancer death. They will now examine the association between diet after diagnosis and risk of dying from cancer or from all-causes in the Women�s Health Initiative cohort. This work will provide insights into translatable opportunities for health promotion and cancer control.
