Diet and breast cancer

Less than 10 per cent of all breast cancers are caused by faulty genes; the vast majority are caused by environmental factors including diet.
This scientific report from the Vegetarian & Vegan Foundation – http://www.vegetarian.org.uk – asks why breast cancer cases are rising and investigates the role of diet (including the consumption of meat and dairy products)
In summary, this report provides a compelling argument that the consumption of animal-based foods is linked to the development of breast cancer. The combined findings of over 50 scientific papers from reputable peer-reviewed journals such as the British Medical Journal and the Lancet leave no doubt that diet is linked to breast cancer risk. Taken in their entirety, they indicate a causative role for red meat, animal fat and dairy foods.
This report provides a vital source of information for health professionals, enabling them to make better-informed choices in recommending dietary changes to breast cancer patients and women considered to be at risk of this disease.
