It has been known for years that dairy consumption increases a person’s risk of cancer. This BBC Medicine study confirms this.

Dairy consumption increases the risk for cancer, according to a study published in BMC Medicine.

Researchers compared dairy consumption and cancer risk for over half a million participants in China for 11 years. For every 50 grams (less than a 1/4 cup) of milk and other dairy products consumed per day, overall, liver, and female breast cancer risk increased by 7{a320e13f4245ad4b9f2fca21e6527f5a3b2e1421f5c0a2d141b7cabfa240b057}, 12{a320e13f4245ad4b9f2fca21e6527f5a3b2e1421f5c0a2d141b7cabfa240b057}, and 17{a320e13f4245ad4b9f2fca21e6527f5a3b2e1421f5c0a2d141b7cabfa240b057}, respectively.

As more people in China drink milk regularly, intake of saturated fat and hormones associated with cancer development also increase.
