Cancer linked to fatty diet The Times of India Friday, July 18, 2003 London (Reuters) - Evidence of a link between fatty foods and breast cancer is mounting with new research showing that eating high fat milk, cheese, butter and meat may raise the odds of developing the disease. Scientists at the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the charity Cancer Research UK found that women who had eaten more than 90 grams of fat a day had double the risk of breast cancer of those who had had half that amount. The British study, published in The Lancet, is the second in less than a week linking a high-fat diet with the biggest cancer killer in women. ''It is emerging evidence of a link,'' said Dr Sheila Bingham of the MRC Dunn Human Nutrition Unit in Cambridge who conducted the British study. ''The effect seems to be related particularly to saturated fat found mostly in high fat milk, meat and some cereals such as biscuits and cakes,'' she said. Bingham and her team studied detailed food diaries of 13,000 older women in Norfolk, who took part in a study between 1993-1997. ''The women who were eating 90 grams of fat (a day) had a two-fold risk of those who were eating 40 grams,'' she said.
