Dairy Milk Intake Linked to Higher Breast Cancer Risk
Research done on nearly 53,000 people found that dairy milk intake is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, even in small amounts. As little as ¼ cup per day can increase the risk by 30%. Drinking one cup per day can increase the risk by 50%, and drinking two to three cups per day can increase it by 70% – 80%. Alternatives to dairy may be the better choice. Soy milk intake did not increase the risk of breast cancer.

Dairy, soy, and risk of breast cancer: those confounded milks
Both soy and dairy have been hypothesized to affect risk of breast cancer in opposite directions. Intakes of these two food groups are often negatively correlated, but have rarely been adjusted for each other. Thus, soy foods are often good indicators of less dairy or its absence.
In Summary, Animal Protein:
– High in Fats and Calories, saturated fats and Cholesterols
– The human body cannot break down animal protein effectively
– Excessive consumption burdens and damages the liver and kidney
– Difficult to digest
– May cause allergies
– Long term consumption may increase risk of diseases including atherosclerosis, fatty liver, heart attack, and even cancer
– Excessive consumption increases calcium loss from the body
– Increases risk of osteoporosis
Compared to animal proteins, plant proteins such as soy protein are more easily absorbed by the body.
Plant proteins provide the body with essential nutrients but with less fat and fewer calories.
Besides, soy is rich in phytochemicals to effectively boost immune functions.
The American Diabetes Association hails soy as the ideal source of protein for diabetics as soy does not burden the kidneys. Soy protein is a plant protein. Hence, it does not contain any animal hormones or fats, making it the healthier choice.
