Startling Study Links Breast Cancer Mortality Rates to Dairy Products
By Ari Solomon
According to scientists, eating dairy products such as yogurt, ice cream or
increase the risk of mortality by 50 percent for women with breast cancer.
It is believed that estrogen, a hormone found in full-fat milk products, which
is known to encourage tumor growth, is to blame.
Among 1,500 California-based breast cancer patients in a recent study, the dairy
products most commonly consumed were ice cream, yogurt, cheese, full-fat lattes
and hot chocolate. Scientists discovered that the women who consumed just one
portion of any of these products daily were 50 percent more likely to die from
breast cancer within 12 years. This is the first study to show a strong link
between dairy products and death from breast cancer.
The study also determined that most milk consumed by the public comes from cows
who are pregnant, noting that such milk is particularly high in estrogen.
Along with human health risks, dairy consumption involves horrific animal abuse.
