Once convicted of cancer, one must be smart to choose a lifestyle and food to be consumed. Because some certain foods may increase the risk of severity of illness or even death. Just as that found a new study from the U.S..
This study reveals that women who develop breast cancer are advised to stay away from high-fat dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, butter and ice cream various flavors because these foods increase the risk of the patient’s death.
Having studied 1893 women with breast cancer, it is known that patients who on average consume at least one serving of high-fat dairy products per day 49 percent higher risk of dying from the disease compared to diidapnya that breast cancer patients who only consume little or no dairy products once.
“The increased risk of death is still relatively ‘low’. But because there is so difficult to reduce the consumption of high-fat dairy products, I guess if you had breast cancer then the effort is certainly not in vain,” said research team leader of Emperor Permanente Candyce Kroenke .
According to researchers, the total intake of dairy products does not affect the condition of a woman who had been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer stage 1, 2 or 3A. But if it is consumed dairy products high in fat such as milk and products derived from pure milk such as cheese and ice cream the difference will be evident.
Not only that, breast cancer patients who ate one serving of high-fat dairy products or more in a day are also more at risk of dying from the disease by 64 percent. Moreover, high-fat diet has long been associated with cardiovascular disease.
From there, researchers suspect the problem may lie in the estrogen contained in the milk. This hormone has long been known to cause several types of breast cancer. Moreover, when compared with the consumption of unsaturated fats, apparently in the presence of estrogen in high-fat dairy products, the risk of death in breast cancer patients appear higher.
