ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A new study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, conducted as part of the St. Jude Lifetime Cohort (SJLIFE), provides new insights into how diet affects aging in adult survivors of childhood cancer. This study, involving 3,322 participants between the ages of 18 and 65, found that higher consumption of dark green vegetables and nuts/seeds is associated with a lower risk of premature aging, while an increased intake of refined grains is linked to a higher risk. These findings, derived from assessments using the Deficit Accumulation Index (DAI), contribute to the growing understanding of the impact of specific dietary choices on the long-term health of childhood cancer survivors. This study is pivotal in understanding the importance of specific plant-based dietary choices in managing long-term health outcomes and enhancing the quality of life for childhood cancer survivors.
