Eat Carbs, Beat Cancer
Protein diets are the rage, but cutting back on carbs could mean skimping on cancer protection. A 13-year study of nearly 30,000 women found that those who followed six or more recommendations from the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) ran a 35 percent lower risk of cancer than women who met one or none.
Here are 6 of AICR's 15 rules to live longer.
- Eat five or more servings of antioxidant-packed vegetables and fruits daily (the new national guideline is five to nine servings a day).
- Eat seven or more daily servings of whole grains, legumes, and root vegetables (they're also good sources of antioxidants).
- Eat no more than 3 ounces of red meat per day.
- Limit saturated fats such as lard, butter, and trans fats.
- Try to get at least an hour of moderate exercise daily; at least once a week, step up the intensity so the hour qualifies as vigorous exercise.
- Stay away from tobacco.
