Professor Mohammad Keshgar, Consultant Breast Cancer Surgeon at London’s Royal Free Hospital writes in the Daily Mail today about how healthy eating can affect the re-occurrence rate for breast cancer patients.

His article refers to a major study led by the University of Westminster which focusses on the effects of diet and lifestyle on the recurrence of breast cancer. They are co-ordinating the largest dietary study to date of UK breast cancer patients, analysing the diets of more than 3,000 sufferers from 56 NHS hospitals. Three years into this five-year study, there is strong evidence to suggest that breast cancer recurrence rates can be reduced - and survival rates improved - when patients adopt a healthy lifestyle. 

The Haven promotes healthy eating for breast cancer patients. As part of a Visitors support programme they can receive free personalised healthy eating advice from one of our nutritional therapists. In addition we offer The Haven’s Guide to Healthy Eating, run cookery workshops, and you can buy our healthy eating cookery book The Haven in My Kitchen. There are also plenty of blogs and films on our site to give health eating inspiration.
