Diet and Ovarian Cancer


Can diet help fight ovarian cancer?  Two new studies suggest a possible link.  Findings from a University of Michigan study indicate that ginger can cause ovarian cancer cells to die.  Usually ovarian cancer patients develop a recurrant form of the disease that stops responding to chemotherapy.   

A second study from Harvard was presented at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) suggesting that increased dietary flavinoids, such as those found in tea, red wine, soy beans, walnuts and various vegetables, could reduce the risk of ovarian cancer.
