dc.description.abstractThis study assessed differences in dietary intakes in breast cancer survivors (n = 13) and women without breast cancer (controls, n = 71). All women were postmenopausal [mean age (SD) 58.5 (± 3.8) y, 95% White, 2.4% Asian Pacific, and 2.4% Black] and the two groups did not differ in age, energy intake, or body mass index (p > 0.05). Cancer survivors may be motivated to make dietary modifications to improve their survivorship and decrease cancer recurrence. Compared to controls, survivors consumed less dairy products, animal protein, total protein, calcium, and riboflavin (p < 0.05). Calcium intakes were of particular concern in survivors who consumed an average of 686 mg calcium/d, which is < 60% of the recommended 1200 mg/d. Given the important role of calcium in bone health and protein in muscle function among aging women, these survivors may benefit from consultation with a Registered Dietitian or other health professional.
