Skin cancer: diet can help

A low-fat diet can help reduce the risk of skin cancer, a US study has discovered

A low-fat diet can help reduce the risk of skin cancer, a US study has discovered.

People on a normal, high fat diet were nearly five times as likely to develop skin cancer as someone in the controlled diet group.

Non-melanoma skin cancer is the most common variety of skin cancer among whites in the US, with about half a million new cases reported every year.

Researchers from the Veterans Affairs Medical Centre and the Baylor College of Medicine, both in Houston, decided to investigate the effects of diet on skin cancer after animal studies showed a higher risk of developing skin cancer on a high-fat diet. This risk was reduced after changing to a low-fat regimen.

The study examined 76 people with skin cancer, comparing the development of the disease over a two year period with high and low-fat diets.
