We Drink It Daily, But We Do Not Know It Cause cancer

Breast cancer is the most common female cancer in Western countries, affecting nearly one in nine women and is considered the leading cause of death in women with colorectal cancer and lung cancer.

There are several risk factors for breast cancer, the best known are age, genetic predisposition, a family history of breast cancer or other cancers, exposure to ionizing radiation ... Other risk factors are such as weight gain in adulthood, smoking and second-hand smoke, birth weight, night work, and some non-cancerous breast conditions.

According to a study conducted by a team of researchers from the US group Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, California), published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, women diagnosed with breast cancer who consumed a diet rich in whole dairy products, have higher mortality risk than those who consumed low-fat dairy products.

What is the impact of dairy products on the evolution of breast cancer?

This is an impressive discovery because breast cancer growth is stimulated by the estrogen hormone, which causes breast cancer growth and when we know that high-fat industrial dairy products contain an increased amount of estrogen and progesterone, the cause-and-effect relationship is proven.

The high content of dairy products in estrogen comes from the fact that milk sometimes comes from pregnant cows. Dairy products that are low in fat will also be low in estrogen.

That's why women diagnosed with breast cancer are advised to consume fewer whole milk products and favor those who are low in fat.

Course of the study :

Following the above statements, the experts wanted to prove whether the consumption of whole dairy products increases the risk of recurrence of breast cancer, as well as the risk of mortality. So they did a study on a list of fat-rich dairy products namely:
  • Concentrated or powdered milk
  • Ice cream
  • The cream / whipped cream
  • The flan
  • Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Butter

The study was conducted on a sample of 1893 women diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago. Participants had to consume different amounts of dairy products every day for 12 years.

The results of the study are shocking: Women who consumed significant amounts of high-fat dairy products (at least once a day) multiplied by 1.5 the risk of dying because of their breast cancer.

Although these results are revealing, it is important to consider different parameters before drawing conclusions. Further testing and research is underway to further explore the link between high-fat dairy products and the deadly results of breast cancer.

Until the results of this research are available, it is recommended that all breast cancer patients do their best to reduce the risk of recurrence of the disease and increase the survival rate by:
  • Following a healthy diet and eliminating processed products and sugar.
  • Get rid of alcohol.
  • Stopping the cigarette.
  • Practicing regular physical activity.
  • Playing sports regularly.
  • Respecting the treatment prescribed by the doctor
