Vegetarian dietary patterns and the risk of breast cancer in a low-risk population.

Adherence to a vegan diet may protect women against breast cancer.

​This study examined the consumption of vegetarian diets in relation to the prevention of breast cancer. Researchers studied the dietary and medical records of more than 50,000 American Seventh-day Adventist women obtained through validated food frequency questionnaires and hospital records. 

Researchers discovered that vegans exhibited low risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared to non-vegetarians. The results of this study show that following a vegan diet may help  guard against the development of breast cancer in women.
