No food or diet can prevent you from getting breast cancer. And there’s a certain type of food that can lead to this cancer.
Breast cancer is less common in countries where the typical diet is plant-based and low in total fat.
A recent research on adult women in the United States has found breast cancer to be related to dietary fat intake.
Girls who eat a high-fat diet during puberty, even if they don’t become overweight or obese, may have a higher risk of developing breast cancer later in life.
The full-fat dairy products that have been inspected are:
– Whole milk
– Condensed or evaporated milk
– Ice cream
The hormone estrogen stimulates breast cell growth, including the growth of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer cells.
Estrogen is created and stored in fat cells. Thus, high-fat dairy products also contains high levels of estrogen and progesterone because most of the milk is produced by pregnant cows.
So if you can’t resist eating dairy product, choose a low-fat diet because most of the fat has been removed already.
