A diet can actually influence the health and well-being of an individual — and while it’s hard to argue with this statement, it is much easier to challenge the assumption that a low-fat diet can have any long-term health-improving factors. This new study by specialists from the American Society of Clinical Oncology has shown that in reducing the risk of developing breast cancer in women, you really should pay attention to the low-fat diet, since a clinical trial has shown a direct relationship between them and this type of cancer, including in adulthood.
It should be noted that a significant part of the research of specialists was based on the study and evaluation of a database of studies obtained from the Women Health Initiative, which is one of the largest medical organizations in the United States, specializing in the study of women's health and the factors that can destroy health. Regarding the question of the preferred diet, the experts noted that in reality, as their observations showed, the absolute majority of women – especially those older than forty – who mostly eat a low-fat diet, have a 21% lower risk factor for developing breast cancer. type, and cancer in general.
This observational base was compiled on the basis of monitoring more than 49,000 women throughout the United States, some of whom were not previously seen by an oncologist — nevertheless, a long-term clinical experiment showed that a diet rich in fats may actually cause development of breast cancer.
In addition, some previous studies have in one way or another indicated this possibility – and this means that the current study only confirms the direct threat from excessive fat intake for women over forty years old. So far, experts want to double-check the data and prepare a more detailed and analytical report on their observations.
