We Drink It Daily, But Don’t Know That These Drinks Can Cause Breast Cancer!
One study suggests that women who eat full-fat dairy products after diagnosis of breast cancer are more likely to die from this disease than women who eat low-fat dairy products after the diagnosis.
Fat cells create and store the hormone estrogen and it actually stimulates breast cell growth. That includes the growth of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer cells. Most of the milk is product of pregnant cow so many researchers believe that dairy products eaten in the most Western countries and in the United States have high levels of progesterone and estrogen in them. Therefore, it is more likely that low-fat dairy products have lower levels of progesterone and estrogen because most of the fat has been actually removed.
In this study, the researches wanted to know if eating full-fat dairy products increased the risk of breast cancer recurrence (the cancer coming back), as well as the risk of dying from breast cancer.
For this study, full-fat dairy products causing Breast Cancer included:
- Whole milk
- Condensed or evaporated milk
For about 12 years women were observed and followed. The researchers compared two categories of women and found that who reported eating one or more serving per day of full-fat dairy products had a 49% higher risk of dying from breast cancer and a 64% higher risk of dying from any cause compared to women who ate fewer servings per day of full-fat dairy products or women who ate low-fat dairy products.
It’s important to keep several things in mind even though the results of the study are troubling!
If someone has a diagnose with early-stage breast cancer, it is important to improve chances of survival and do everything to minimize the risk of recurrence, including:
- Eating a healthy diet that’s low in sugar and processed foods
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Exercising daily (especially walks in nature!)
- Avoiding alcohol
- Not smoking
- Staying on track with any medicines to reduce the risk of recurrence
