The fight against cancer continues, and while on occasion we get some encouraging news on treatment advancement, sometimes we get news of some setbacks. I read this on my hometown online newspaper and thought it needed highlighted on account of the recent loss of Lisa Dodd. In her memory, and in honor of our brother Bob O'Brien, I would like to ask our online brothers and sisters to seriously consider contributing to the Susan B. Komen Foundation.

Don't take this story as gospel, only as information. Headlines and results in the fight against cancer change daily. As Bob-o tells us, information is the best weapon in the fight against cancer.

Study finds extra servings of fruits, vegetables fail to prevent return of breast cancer

CARLA K. JOHNSON
Associated Press Writer

CHICAGO — Hopes that a diet low in fat and chock-full of fruits and vegetables could prevent the return of breast cancer were dashed Tuesday by a large, seven-year experiment in more than 3,000 women.

The government study found no benefit from a mega-veggies-and-fruit diet over the U.S. recommended servings of five fruits and vegetables a day — more than most Americans get.

Researchers noted that none of the breast cancer survivors lost weight on either diet. That led some experts to suggest that weight loss and exercise should be the next frontier for cancer prevention research. The study appears in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association.

"It sends us back to the drawing board," said Susan Gapstur of Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine, who wasn't involved in the new study but co-wrote an accompanying editorial in the journal.

"Should we really have focused on dietary components like fruits, vegetables and fat?" Gapstur asked. "Or should we be focusing, in addition to diet, on lifestyle factors including physical activity and weight?"

For now, the message for the 2.4 million breast cancer survivors in the United States is that they don't need to go overboard on veggies, researchers said.

"This should really lift some of the guilt if women are feeling, 'I'm just not doing enough,'" said study co-author Marcia Stefanick of Stanford University.

The research was kicked off by a $5 million grant from the late Wal-Mart heir John Walton and got an additional $30 million in support from the National Cancer Institute.

Walton wanted to support a scientific study so cancer survivors wouldn't have to "rely on folklore," said John Pierce, head of cancer prevention at University of California, San Diego, who led the research.

Earlier research on whether a healthy diet prevents breast cancer has shown mixed results. The new study was designed to be more rigorous.

In this experiment, all the women had been successfully treated for early stage breast cancer. Their average age was 53 when the study began.

A group of 1,537 women were randomly assigned to a daily diet that included five vegetable servings, three fruit servings, 16 ounces of vegetable juice and 30 grams of fiber. In most cases, a serving equaled a half-cup. French fries and iceberg lettuce couldn't be counted as vegetables.

The women were allowed to eat meat, but were told to get no more than 15 percent to 20 percent of their calories from fat, a goal they ultimately were unable to achieve.

"That's a tough diet," said Pierce, who ate that way himself along with his staff and the women in the study.

As a comparison, another 1,551 women were assigned to get educational materials about the importance of eating five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.

The women in both groups kept food diaries regularly, but not daily, through the course of the study.

During the next seven years, the cancer returned in about the same proportion of women in both groups: 256 women (16.7 percent) of the women on the special diet and 262 women (16.9 percent) in the comparison group. About 10 percent of both groups died during that time, most of them from breast cancer.

It didn't matter whether the breast cancer was the most common type — fueled by hormones — or not; the special diet didn't prevent the cancer from coming back. Those results run counter to a previous study by different researchers that suggested low-fat diets may help prevent the return of the type of breast cancer that is not linked to hormones.

In the mega-veggies group, the women changed their eating habits substantially, mostly by increasing fruits and vegetables to as much as 11 servings a day. They failed to meet the fat target, but did eat 13 percent less in fat calories than did the comparison group.

After one year, women on the high-vegetable diet had 73 percent higher blood levels of carotenoids (pigments found in fruits and vegetables) than the other women. That indicates they were truthful about how many fruits and vegetables they ate, Pierce said.

But they may not have been so honest about the calories they ate. The super-veggie group gained 1.3 pounds and the comparison group gained 0.88 pound, on average.

"There's no question they were underreporting on calories, especially the heavier women," Pierce said, or they would have lost weight.

Lisa M. Dodd

April 20th, 1964 - July 16th, 2007


On July 16th 2007, God brought another angel home as Lisa Mula Dodd peacefully succumbed to a 7 year battle with breast cancer. Our most giving and loving wife, daughter, mother, sister, and friend slipped from our arms to enter eternal peace. Lisa had the most vibrant personality and giving heart of any angel on earth. Cancer may have shortened her life but it did not define her life. She seized every day and was always reaching out for new and exciting adventures. Her generosity to all who had the pleasure in sharing her day to day life will always be remembered. Lisa never met a stranger and treated everyone with love and compassion. She said her greatest achievement had been reached when she had the wonderful experience of becoming Michael Dodd’s mother on March 19, 2000. Born in St. Petersburg, Florida, Lisa graduated from the University of Georgia and worked for Allstate Insurance as a Fraudulent Investigator. Without Lisa our hearts are broken and our tears are endless, but our memories and joys are immeasurable. Her laughter and smile will never leave our memories. We will continue to see Lisa in her son Michael’s heart and personality. We will cherish every second spent with her and try to continue the dreams she had for Michael’s future. Lisa leaves behind on earth her husband Thomas Dodd, her son Michael Dodd, her Mother Nancy McNulty, her sister Christy Sams, her nieces Bailey and Amelia Sams and her GiGi Doris Anderson. She is now experiencing God’s promise with her father, Peter Mula. Rest our beautiful Lisa until we meet again and know we will keep and protect your memories forever in our hearts and soul. Memorial services will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 19, 2007 at First Christian Church of Roswell. A celebration of her life will be shared after the service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, P.O. Box 530109 Dept. G-00125 Atlanta, GA 30353-0109. Northside Chapel Funeral Directors and Crematory, Roswell/Alpharetta, 770-645-1414.

Thanks for posting that picture of my wife.It is one of my favorites! I did not know where you got it from until I realized that it had to be from the funeral home. This picture was taken on Little Beach in Maui. She had just got done with 36 radiation treatments and was starting a new chemotherapy. Her beauty always over shadowed any treatment.That is how I want to remember my baby. Thanks again for posting the picture.

A post to let Tom and Michael Dodd know they are being held in others thoughts as they begin picking up the pieces of their lives and that their angel is also being thought of by others.
