Dairy Foods and the Risk of Breast Cancer Fact Sheet No. 33
Warren, Barbour S.
The results of studies examining the relationship between eating dairy foods and breast cancer risk are inconsistent. Some studies showed a higher risk of breast cancer associated with eating dairy foods, others showed a lower risk and some showed no association at all. At this time, no absolute suggestions can be made to help women to decrease their risk of breast cancer by their choice of dairy foods.
