Washington: Restricting calories for a definite period may increase the success of cancer treatment for a patient, a study has claimed.Lead study author Jean-Ehrland Ricci , PhD, of the French Institute for Health and Medical Research in Nice, France, said that it is known that consuming excess calories is associated with increased cancer risk, far less clarity exists in the scientific literature about how calorie restriction and the body`s metabolism can potentially affect the body`s response to cancer treatment.Ricci and a team of researchers began by separating the mice into two categories: those who would receive a regular diet and those who would receive a reduced-calorie diet (75 percent of normal intake) for the duration of the experiment.After the mice consumed either a regular or a reduced-calorie diet for one week, researchers then further divided the mice into four groups according to the treatment they would receive for the following 10 days.
