WE DRINK IT DAILY, BUT DON’T KNOW THAT IT CAUSES BREAST CANCER
Breast cancer is a serious risk every woman faces and we try to do everything we can do lower that risk and avoid this life-threatening disease. However, sometimes unknowingly we harm our own health and we increase the chances of developing breast cancer, among other diseases. According to a study conducted by a team of researchers at Kaiser Permanente women diagnosed with breast cancer who consumed a diet rich in full-fat dairy have an increased risk of dying compared to women diagnosed with breast cancer but consuming a diet rich in low-fat dairy
- whole milk
- condensed or evaporated milk
- ice cream
The participants in the study were monitored over the course of 12 years and the results were rather shocking.
The study revealed that the subjects who consumed one or more servings of full-fat dairy products every day had a 64% higher chance of dying from any factor and a 49% higher chance of dying from breast cancer compared to the subjects who consumed low-fat dairy products or less servings of full-fat dairy product a day.
Even though these results are quite shocking we need to consider a few other things before we jump into conclusions. The study reveals a connection between full-fat dairy products and fatal breast cancer outcomes, however it doesn’t prove that the one necessarily leads to the other. More tests, experiments and researches are needed in order to discover the real connection between the two.
Until more information on the subject is available, it’s advisable for every patient diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer to do everything he can to reduce the risk of reappearance and increase the possibility of survival. Here are just a few advices they should follow in order to improve their overall state:
- start a healthy eating regimen, eliminating processed foods and sugar
- eliminate alcohol
- balance your body weight
- work out regularly
- quit smoking
- take all the medications your doctors prescribed in order to prevent reoccurrence.
