Premenopausal fat intake and risk of breast cancer.

​Women who indulge in fatty foods during their premenopausal years may be highly vulnerable to breast cancer.

This study was carried out to determine whether an association exists between increased dietary exposure to fats during premenopausal years and the risk of subsequent breast cancer diagnosis. Using food frequency questionnaires and hospital records, researchers followed the diet of over 90,000 premenopausal women for 8 years and evaluated the breast cancer odds ratios in all the subjects in the study population.

Researchers discovered that breast cancer incidence was positively associated with the consumption of fatty foods, including animal, dairy, monounsaturated, and saturated fats. In conclusion, the results of this study show that compliance with a high-fat diet during the premenopausal stage of life may elevate a woman's risk of having breast cancer.
