The study found that breast cancer survivors who follow the most anti-inflammatory diet after diagnosis – one filled with whole grains, spices, healthy fats and vegetables – appear to have lower risk of cardiovascular disease mortality than those survivors eating a Western-style pro-inflammatory diet.
