A new study evaluated whether high- and low- fat dairy was related to worsened breast cancer survival.
The study included 1,893 women who had been diagnosed with early-stage invasive breast cancer between 1997 and 2000. Participants completed the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Food Frequency Questionnaire after diagnosis.
The consumption of high-fat dairy was shown to put patients at a greater risk of mortality from breast cancer. The study showed that eating at least half a serving of high-fat dairy per day increased the risk of dying from the disease.
