Some studies have linked high intakes of dairy to an increased risk of breast cancer and other forms of cancer. But others have found no connection, and even a reduced risk. The question is, which one’s are unbiased studies and which one’s are sponsored by the dairy industry?

Scientists from the Kaiser Permanente research centre in California looked at the records of 1,500 women diagnosed with breast cancer between 1997 and 2000 and found that those with the disease who eat a single portion daily of a product containing full-fat milk could be 50 percent more likely to die.

See the article here:

There is also good evidence regarding the link between dairy and breast cancer in a book written by Professor Jane Plant ‘Your Life in Your Hands’ that was written in 2000. I read this book over 11 years ago and I’ve been advising my clients ever since to avoid dairy foods as much as possible, as the evidence presented in this book was compelling. In her book, Professor Plant provided a large amount of references to research that has proven the association between breast cancer (and other reproductive cancers in women as well as prostate cancer in men) and since then I have also come across a vast number of scientific trials that have also confirmed this link.

So, next time you are out shopping – grab the rice milk instead….and you may just avoid an early death!
