[Abstract]The incidence of cancer, including ovarian cancer, has been increasing in Japan, likely due to lifestyle changes. Recent evidence revealed that lifestyle factors are related to cancer incidence and cancer outcomes. The American Cancer Society (ACS) has published guidelines on nutrition and physical activity for cancer survivors. These recommendations include weight management, physical activity, and a plant-based diet. Several observational studies have suggested that adherence to the ACS guidelines would improve the prognosis of ovarian cancer patients. Currently, a randomized trial is ongoing to study the effect of lifestyle changes on ovarian cancer patients.
