Trigger tumor progression.
Low-calorie diet has proved, especially in patients with abdominal pain, due to the risk of death, because the low-calorie diet soon after infection with pathogenic bacteria die of colon inflammation. In addition, the low-calorie diet also interfere with the ability of the immune system to respond to infection.
“Less calories makes you hard to fight the virus,” said Jenifer Fenton, an assistant professor in the Department of Food Science and Nutrition. He added that, since it is a very different pathogens, so that the caloric intake affects the body’s ability to respond to infection.
Based on experiments with mice, researchers found a reduced-calorie mice had a higher mortality in response to infection with infection by H. hepaticus that causes inflammation of the colon and eventually leads to tumor progression. This process is known to be more aggressive in the cases of colorectal cancer observed.
