Dairy milk can increase the risk of breast cancer by up to 80 percent

Drinking milk is always considered healthy. But sometimes it can also become a cause of serious rage. A recent study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology has revealed that consumption of dairy milk can increase the risk of breast cancer in women.

Researchers from Loma Linda University in the US have claimed that their study has found strong evidence that dairy milk and some other factors associated with it cause breast cancer in women. They also noted that even moderate amounts of dairy milk can increase the risk of breast cancer in women by up to 80 percent.

Gary E Fraser, co-author of the research, said that consuming one-fourth to one-third of dairy milk per day increases the risk of breast cancer by 30 percent. For those drinking one cup 50 percent and for those drinking two to three cups per day, the risk increases to 70 to 80 percent.

In the research, scientists evaluated the dietary intake of nearly 53,000 women over 8 years, all of whom were initially cancer-free. But 1,057 new breast cancer cases were reported during the research period.

The researchers said they had participants fill out questionnaires about their demographics, family history of breast cancer, physical activity, alcohol use, hormonal and other drug use, breast cancer screening and fertility, and gynecological history.

According to researchers, sex hormones present in dairy milk may be responsible for breast cancer. Because about 75 percent of dairy animals are pregnant.

She noted that while breast cancer in women is a hormone-responsive cancer, consumption of dairy and other animal proteins is associated with higher blood levels of hormones, such as insulin growth factor-1 (IGF-1), which cause certain types of cancer. Promotes cancer.

Researchers suggest that soy milk can be a good substitute for dairy milk.
