Cancer Risk: Composition vs. Calories

Came across this today and thought it was interesting… It is on the topic of restricting calories and reducing cancer risk. UAB has done research that suggests that it is not so much the calorie restriction, but the body composition that alters the cancer risk.


In my opinion, the only reason calorie restriction ever showed promise for life extension or health was because the less you eat, the less inflamation you cause and it reduces the chronic insulin output most Americans and Europeans experience.
