Less Cancer with Fatty Dairy Products

Published måndag 24 oktober 2005 kl 12.26

A new Swedish study concludes that women who consume large quantities of fatty dairy products have less risk of contracting cancer of the intestine.

Researchers from Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute have studied more than 60,000 women aged between 40 and 76 over a 15 year period. During that period 798 died from colorectal or intestinal cancer.

An analysis of their eating habits revealed that those who ate high fat cheese, whole milk and other fatty dairy products at least four times a day ran a 40 percent lower risk of intestinal cancer.

Cancer of the intestine is the third most common form of the disease among Swedes, after prostate cancer and breast cancer.
