Nuts and Cancer
Nuts may be considered a cancer superfood because they contain additive and/or synergistic properties that contribute to reduced cancer risk.
Nuts are a rich source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, tocopherols, antioxidant polyphenols, fiber, prebiotics, vegetable protein, minerals, and vitamins. The fiber and prebiotics can promote the growth of beneficial bacteria gut microbiome.[i]
A human genetic study of women with breast cancer found consuming 2 oz (60 grams) of walnuts a day for 2 weeks improved 456 cancer prevention and cancer growth genetic pathways. Analysis of the data showed activation of pathways that promote apoptosis (normal cancer cell death), helped keep cancer cells in place and inhibited the pathways that promote activation of pathways that promote proliferation and migration....
Dairy Milk and Cancer
Dairy milk has long been a staple in many people's diets, but recent research has raised concerns about its potential link to cancer. In this blog post, we are looking at what the research says about dairy milk and cancer.
It is important to note that these associations are observational, meaning that they cannot prove that dairy milk causes cancer. However, they do suggest that there may be a link between dairy milk consumption and an increased risk of certain cancers.
Dairy Milk Specific Cancer Risks
Prostate cancer: A meta-analysis of 13 studies found that men who consumed the most dairy milk had a 10% increased risk of prostate cancer compared to men who consumed the least dairy milk.
Breast cancer: A meta-analysis of 17 studies found that women who consumed the most dairy milk had a 17% increased risk of breast cancer compared to women who consumed the least dairy milk.
A study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology found that even...
