Caloric Restriction Seems To Improve Chances Of Cancer Survival

September 7, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Studies have shown a relationship between excess caloric intake and the onset of cancer, but a new French study shows that restricting caloric intake may improve the body’s response to cancer treatment. The study in mice proved that reducing caloric intake inhibited the overexpression of the protein Mcl-1, which is associated with several cancers. The researchers said that understanding the link between metabolism and the body's natural cancer suppressors and activators could lead to more effective therapies and improved survival for cancer patients.
