Is there a link between milk and cancer?
Those who consume very little milk and dairy products have a lower risk of developing breast, ovarian and lung cancer. In a study examining people who consume very little milk and dairy products because they have lactose sensitivity, it was found that those with lactose sensitivity had a lower incidence of cancer.
It has been determined that there is a link between the consumption of milk and dairy products and the risk of developing some types of cancer. Research conducted in Sweden revealed that those who are lactose intolerant have a lower risk of developing breast, ovarian and lung cancer.
Scientists from Lund University examined the health data of 22,788 people and their families, who consume very little milk and dairy products because they are lactose intolerant. The study revealed that lactose-sensitive participants had a lower risk of developing these types of cancer than the general population.
Scientists also reminded that the number of breast, ovarian and lung cancer cases in North America and Western Europe is higher than in Asia and Central Africa. It was stated that this may be due to the higher consumption of milk and dairy products in North America and Western Europe.
However, scientists emphasized that the results should be evaluated carefully, that it would not be correct to say that there is a cause-effect relationship between milk and dairy products and cancer, and that further research is needed to determine the factors. The results of the study were published in the “British Journal of Cancer”. (Ntvmsnbc)
