Drinking coffee or tea may improve survival after breast cancer
Full article: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41416-021-01277-1
In a study of 8,900 women with stage 1, 2 or 3 breast cancer, those who drank coffee survived longer after a breast cancer diagnosis than those who did not drink coffee. Both coffee and tea were linked to improved survival from any cause. Several factors were linked to greater coffee or tea consumption, so this finding must be taken with some caution. However, breast cancer survivors who are regular coffee or tea drinkers may find this research reassuring. (posted 8/31/21)

Open Clinical Trials
The following are studies focused on nutrition for people diagnosed with breast cancer.
- NCT05259410: Time Restricted Eating During Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer. This study will look at whether intermittent fasting during treatment will improve treatment related outcomes, patient related outcomes, and limit treatment related weight gain.
- NCT04000880: AMPLIFY: An Online Weight Loss Study Specifically for Cancer Survivors. AMPLIFY is a nation-wide, web-based diet and exercise study recruiting overweight survivors of early-stage breast, prostate, ovarian, renal, colorectal, endometrial cancer and multiple myeloma in people age 50 and older who are interested in becoming more active, eating better and losing weight.
- NCT04298086: A Study of the Body's Response to Exercise and a Plant-Based Diet in Overweight Postmenopausal Women With Breast Cancer. This study is looking to find out what effects exercise and a plant-based diet have on aromatase levels in postmenopausal women who are overweight and being treated with an aromatase inhibitor for their HR+ breast cancer.
- NCT04365569 Evaluating the Effectiveness of an Individualized Nutrition and Physical Activity Counseling Program. This pilot study looks at whether a tailored in-person and telephone-based nutrition and exercise counseling program can help breast cancer patients improve weight and fitness and thus improve cancer outcomes.
- NCT03824145: Every Day Counts: A Lifestyle Program for Women With Metastatic Breast Cancer (EDC). This study will examine diet and activity, body composition, blood and quality of life in breast cancer patients. The study will recruit 176 women with MBC in Milwaukee (n=88) and Chicago (n=88).
