High-fat dairy may impede breast cancer recovery

Among more than 1800 women surviving early-stage invasive breast cancer and followed for an average of 12 years, researchers from the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research, California, found intake of one or more servings daily of high fat dairy was linked to a 64% higher risk of all-cause mortality and a 49% increased risk of dying from breast cancer.

“Consuming plant-based milks or non-fat dairy products may be a reasonable approach for limiting risk of adverse outcomes,” the researchers said.
