Preschool diet linked to later breast cancer risk

Reuters, March 27, 2006
The diet of preschoolers may influence the risk of breast cancer during adulthood, according to a Boston-based group of investigators...The findings are published in the February issue of the International Journal of Cancer. Women who frequently consumed French fries at preschool age had an increased risk of breast cancer. The increased risk of breast cancer for one additional serving of French fries per week was 27 percent. Consumption of whole milk was linked to a slightly decreased breast cancer risk -- for each additional glass of whole milk per day, the risk decreased by 10 percent. No association was found between nutrient levels and the risk of breast cancer. --Click the title of this post to read the full article from its source--
