As we wrap up Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to share some new research with you in hopes that it can help reduce your or a loved one’s risk - so please share this to help others.
A study commissioned by the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health and the World Cancer Research Fund, found that women who drank between two and three cups of cow's milk daily increased their risk of breast cancer by as much as 80% compared to those who drink soy milk. The average risk a woman has of developing breast cancer is about 12%, so, if she drinks 16 to 24 ounces of milk a day her risk hikes up to 92%.
So does this mean that you need to give up dairy entirely? Only if you want to. But even making a change in reducing the amount of dairy you have could have a positive effect.
It goes to that old adage of moderation. If you have a family history of breast cancer, it might be worth making a bigger sacrifice. There are so many wonderful dairy alternatives these days… I am in love with Almond Milk and use it on everything. Daiya dairy-free cheese is a spectacular alternative. It tastes, melts and cooks just like regular cheese too!
You can start by trying a few new recipes and types of alternatives to find your own favorites. I bet you will be pleasantly surprised with what you find!
Here’s to your health!
