Eating Fatty Foods Increase Breast Cancer Risk
(Ivanhoe Newswire) – A new study revealed high fat intake increases risk of certain types of breast cancer.
Researchers from the Instituto Nazionale Dei Tumori in Milan, Italy, analyzed data from more than 10,000 patients and found high total and saturated fat intake were associated with greater risk of estrogen receptor and progesterone receptor-positive breast cancer, and human epidermal growth factor 3 receptor-negative (HER2−) disease.
The researchers concluded that high saturated fat was statistically significantly associated with greater risk of HER2− disease. High saturated fat intake particularly increases risk of receptor-positive disease.
