High-Dairy Diets Linked to Less Risk of Postmenopausal Breast Cancer

WebMD, December 14, 2005
Postmenopausal women who eat lots of dairy products may be less likely to develop breast cancer. I a study of 68,000 post-menopausal women (most of whom were white and middle class), research determined that women with high dietary calcium intake were 20% less likely to develop Breast Cancer. However, the same benefit did not appear to exist for women who merely used calcium supplements. Nor did Vitamin D seem to make a difference, as other studies have suggested.
