  1. Cancer linked to fatty diet

    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.
