Prolonged Nightly Fasting and Breast Cancer Prognosis — This study investigates whether duration of nightly fasting is associated with breast cancer recurrence and mortality among patients with early-stage breast cancer and, if so, whether it was associated with risk factors for poor outcomes, including glucoregulation, chronic inflammation, obesity, and… jamanetwork.com
The sample consisted of 2413 patients with breast cancer but without diabetes, with a mean (SD) age of 52.4 (8.9) years and a BMI (calculated as weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared) of 27.0 (5.9) (Table 1). A total of 2064 participants (85.5%) were white and 1335 (55.3%) were college educated. Participants reported a mean (SD) nightly fasting duration of 12.5 (1.7) hours and 4.4 (1.2) eating episodes per day. One-third of the sample (788 [32.7%]) consumed 25 kcal or more after 8 pm. A short nightly fasting duration (<13 hours per night) was significantly associated with college education, a lower BMI, shorter sleep duration, higher self-reported kilocalorie intake, more eating episodes, and eating after 8 pm (Table 1).
In this large prospective cohort of patients with early-stage breast cancer, a short nightly fasting duration (<13 hours per night)* was associated with a 36% higher hazard for breast cancer recurrence. Short nightly fasting was not associated with statistically significant increased risk of early mortality. To our knowledge, this is the first human study to examine the association between nightly fasting and cancer outcomes…
I just wanted to point this out. What they are saying is that those women who fasted LESS THAN 13 HOURS had a 36% higher recurrence of Breast Cancer. So if you know someone that had Breast Cancer, then please share this with them. It reduces their chance of a recurrence of cancer by over a 1/3rd. This is awesome news.
All this means if you stop eating at 7 at night, and do not eat again until 8 AM the next morning they reduce their chances of getting cancer again. Woot. How awesome is that? 🙂
It is FREE, it is EASY TO DO and it can help so much and has ZERO side effects other than also probably helping them getting to an ideal weight and getting into 6th Gear. Why this is not being shouted from the rooftops by every Health Establishment and all of the so-called, cure cancer programs is up to you to decide.
Although it is one of those things that makes you go hmmm don’t you think? Please share and you might just save someone’s life!
