The diet that slows the growth of cancer - and reduces your chances of getting it in the first place

Scientists have stumbled on what they think is the best diet for preventing - and slowing the growth of - cancer

Scientists have stumbled on what they think is the best diet for preventing - and slowing the growth of - cancer. Just changing to the diet could dramatically reduce your risk, they say.
The diet is a modification of the South Beach Diet, but with added protein. Overall, it comprises just 15 per cent carbohydrate, 58 per cent protein, and 26 per cent fat. It goes against much of the current advice about a healthy diet, and yet it slowed tumour growth in a group of laboratory mice, who were also fed the standard Western diet.
Scientists from the British Columbia Cancer Research Centre reported that 70 per cent of mice fed the Western diet of 55 per cent carbohydrate, 23 per cent protein and 22 per cent fat died from cancer, compared with just 30 per cent of mice on the high-protein diet.
The high-protein diet also boosted the immune system's ability to kill cancer cells and prevent obesity.
