Dairy products and ovarian cancer: a pooled analysis of 12 cohort studies.

A surge in ovarian cancer risk is associated with habitual consumption of 2-3 servings of milk per day.

This study evaluated dairy food intake in relation to the development of ovarian cancer by meta-analysis. A total of 12 cohort studies were included in this meta-analysis. The team of researchers discovered that consistent consumption of 2-3 servings of milk per day increased the likelihood of developing ovarian cancer. In contrast, regular intake of cheese, yoghurt, and ice cream was found to have little or no effect on ovarian cancer risk. The findings of this meta-analysis reveal that increased intake of milk may contribute positively to the development of ovarian cancer.
