Ovarian Cancer: Does Milk And Dairy Increase The Risk Of Developing Ovarian Cancer

We have been focusing on a couple different diet approaches with our PEERtrainer Tip Of The Day email coaching program. One approach in particular, Eat to Live/Eat For Health by Dr. Joel Fuhrman has generated a lot of discussion.


One interesting thing about his work is that it is highly sourced. Overall, Dr. Fuhrman asserts a link between disease and diet, particularly the over-consumption of animal protein and the under-consumption of plant protein. As one works on this ratio, their health will improve and risk decrease.

But what is the evidence that at least supports considering this assertion and these linkages? Going to one of his footnotes for his new "Nutrition Prescription" we see a link to a study published in 2006 that examines the link between Milk and Lactose Intake and Ovarian Cancer.

The link takes you to a NIH page (US Government) that has an "abstract" of the study. The conclusion of this particular study is this:

"studies are consistent and show significant positive associations between intakes of total dairy foods, low-fat milk, and lactose and risk of ovarian cancer.. support the hypothesis that high intakes of dairy foods and lactose may increase the risk of ovarian cancer. "
