According to the findings of a Norwegian study, individuals who consume three glass of milk daily, have a two times increased risk of breast cancer in comparison to the ones who consume half a cup, or less.
Unfortunately, the breast cancer is in expansion and we are all aware of it. If we take into consideration a whole range of factors, it turns out that milk could be responsible for the increased risk of this disease. Initially, it was thought that milk only accelerates the development of an already existent cancer, but the Norwegian scientists claim that apart from that, it is the main culprit for its occurrence in the first place.
United States, Sweden, Finland, Canada, and Britain are the countries in which most cases of breast cancer are identified. Interestingly, the consumption of milk takes top position particularly in these countries. On the other hand, breast cancer is an extremely rare occurrence or it doesn’t exist at all in countries where milk of animal origin is used. As mentioned in the very beginning, women who tend to drink three glasses of milk a day are more likely to develop a breast cancer in comparison to the ones drinking only half a cup.
Acidic waste products from glandular function called hormones and growth factors in milk are known to have carcinogenic content, and the same was proved for synthetic supplements of vitamin D, which milk is often enriched with. In general, patients consume two times more synthetic vitamin D than others.
However, these causes for the development of breast cancer are not the only ones. It was noted that the number of cases is growing with the increase of sugar, pastries, and some types of meat, such as pork. On the other hand, the consumption of fish and raw vegetables leads to significant decline.
Finally, there are the bras, especially the tight ones, which increase the risk as well. Women, who wear a bra at least 12 hours daily, increase the risk by more than 20% in comparison to the ones who use them moderately, rarely, or never. This especially refers to bras which contain plastic elements or metal.
