Fatty Foods Leads Teens To Breast Cancer


Most of the teens prefer to eat the junk and fatty foods.They are almost fund of it.Recently a research have found that  those who ate more saturated fat in their diet had higher rates of breast cancer.

The researchers found that higher intakes of unhealthy fats and lower intake of healthy fats during adolescence were associated with an increased risk of denser breasts.Saturated fats come from beef, lamb, pork, poultry with skin, butter, cream, cheese and other whole or 2 percent dairy products, the AHA says. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are found in fatty fish, avocados, walnuts, olives and liquid vegetable oils, the AHA notes.

In the first study from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute researchers looked at 337,000 women. The second was in breast cancer treatment. It looked at 88,000 women for 20 years. Both studies found higher saturated fat and higher animal fats were linked to this cancer.

Women who ate the most saturated fat during adolescence got about 13 percent of total calories from saturated fat. These women had an average breast density of 21.5 percent, the study found. Women who ate the least saturated fat — about 8 percent of total calories from fat — had a breast density of 16.4 percent.
