ACS publishes new guidelines for diet, exercise, and weight control for cancer survivors
New guidelines from the American Cancer Society (ACS) recommend that cancer survivors achieve and maintain a healthy weight, get enough exercise, and eat a healthy diet to improve their treatment outcomes, quality of life, and disease-free and overall survival. According to Colleen Doyle MS RD, ACS director of nutrition and physical activity and co-author of the guidelines, “While we’ve published previous reports outlining the evidence on the impact of nutrition and physical activity on cancer recurrence and survival, this is the first time the evidence has been strong enough to release formal guidelines for survivorship, as we’ve done for cancer prevention.”
