Systematic review and meta-analysis suggest that dietary cholesterol intake increases risk of breast cancer.

​Women on diets high in cholesterol-containing foods may have a high tendency of developing breast cancer.

The objective of this study was to conduct a review and meta-analysis of cohort and case-control studies that investigated the associations between high intake of dietary cholesterol and breast cancer risk. Researchers analyzed nutritional and clinical data extracted from 6 cohort and 3 case-control studies.

The team of investigators found out that regular consumption of 370 mg of cholesterol per day increased the likelihood of developing breast cancer. The findings of this meta-analysis indicate that generous intake of cholesterol-rich foods may contribute to the development of breast cancer.
