Scientists have told how proper nutrition helps to cure cancer faster

(ORDO NEWS) — In one of the largest studies to date, it was found that the effectiveness of cancer treatment depends on the composition of bacteria in the intestine. And this composition is associated with human nutrition.

Scientists from King’s College London, the University of Trento, the European Institute of Oncology in Italy, and the University of Groningen in the Netherlands have studied the relationship between the composition of gut bacteria and the effectiveness of cancer treatment.

According to one of the researchers, Dr. Carl Lee, preliminary results show that the gut microbiome (that is, the composition of gut bacteria) plays a role in cancer immunotherapy. This is explained by the fact that the microbiome is associated with human immunity.

The composition of bacteria in the gut can be changed in several ways. One of them is proper nutrition. It also includes methods such as transplantation and taking probiotics.

As the microbiome in the human body changes, so does the impact of gut bacteria on the immune system.

In the course of the study, samples of the intestinal microbiome of a large group of patients from clinics in the UK, the Netherlands, and Spain were analyzed.

It turned out that in the presence of bacteria Bifidobacterium pseudocatenulatum, Roseburia spp., Akkermansia muciniphila, people had a better immune response.

In addition, the composition of gut bacteria itself also depended on the individual’s diet, constitution, and whether they were taking proton pump inhibitors (drugs).
