A Nutritarian Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Lifestyle Changes in Chronic Disease Prevention Especially Cancer


Brief description of study

The Nutritarian Women's Health Study (NWHS) is a long-term hybrid effectiveness-implementation study on the effect of the Nutritarian Diet on the occurrence, recurrence, and progression of chronic diseases (including all forms of cancer and cardiometabolic risk factors).

Detailed Study Description

The Nutritional Research Foundation, in conjunction with Northern Arizona University, is conducting a long-term health study for women ages 18 and older. This study will address the effects of a nutrient dense, plant-rich diet on the long-term risks of cancer and other chronic diseases.

Participants enroll in a 30-day training module which outlines the benefits of a nutrient-dense, plant-rich diet. At the conclusion of those videos and written modules, they take a short quiz to assess their knowledge and they can enroll in the full study.

All participation is online with ongoing modules on nutrition and lifestyle. There is a comprehensive health history and lifestyle index to be completed. Nutrition questionnaires will be administered an average of every 3-6 months; PHQ-9 & PSQI questionnaires an average of every 12 months; serum cardiometabolic measures and liquid biopsies an average of every 18 months.
