Interesting new research showing the important link between gut microbiome and cancer treatment outcomes. Good gut health with an abundance of diverse good bacteria is essential to good health and cancer prevention as well. You can improve your gut microbiome by eating a high-fiber diet, including fruits and vegetables high in fructo-oligosaccharides such as bananas, dried fruit, onions, leeks, garlic, asparagus and artichokes, as well as grains with resistant starches such as barley or uncooked potato starch, for example.

Research shows that consumption of high dietary fiber from fruit, vegetables, beans, and whole grains was associated with lower breast cancer risk. One study found that for every 10 grams of fiber consumed daily – slightly less than a cup of beans – the risk of breast cancer was 5 percent lower. Consuming 20 grams of fiber daily would mean a 10 percent lower risk, and so on.
