STUDY TITLE: Milk and dairy consumption among men with prostate cancer and risk of metastases and prostate cancer death.

AUTHORS: Pettersson A, Kasperzyk JL, et. al.

AFFILIATION: Harvard School of Public Health.

BACKGROUND: "Whether milk and dairy intake after a prostate cancer diagnosis is associated with a poorer prognosis is unknown. We investigated post-diagnostic milk and dairy intake in relation to risk of lethal prostate cancer (metastases and prostate cancer death) among participants in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study."

SUBJECTS: "3,918 men diagnosed with apparently localized prostate cancer between 1986 and 2006."

RESULTS: "Men with the highest versus lowest intake of whole milk were at an increased risk of progression." (of prostate cancer growth)
