Some breast cancers are less curable, especially once they spread to other body parts.
According to a study, 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.
The growth of breast cells is stimulated by the hormone estrogen, and this includes the growth of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer. Estrogen is produced and stored in fat cells.
That’s why it’s advisable for women diagnosed with breast cancer to consume less full-fat dairy products and more low-fat ones, and this is especially important for those with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer.
Here are the full-fat products the study included:
- whole milk
- condensed or evaporated milk
- ice cream
Even though these results are quite shocking we need to consider a few other things before we jump into conclusions.
Here are just a few advice 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 re occurrence.
