Health Alert: Studies link saturated fat to breast cancer

Updated: Friday, June 20 2014, 04:28 PM EDT
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- A change in your diet may change your risk for breast cancer.

A study took a closer look at women who ate saturated fat.  The researchers looked at two different studies and found across the board those who ate more saturated fat in their diet had higher rates of breast cancer. 

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. 

This type of fat may be linked to waist weight which may be linked to breast cancer.
To lower the risks of this cancer leave the cheese off burgers and eat more plant foods instead of animal foods.  These small changes can make a difference.
