High-Fat Dairy May Raise Breast Cancer Death Risk For Women, Study Finds

Women who have ever had breast cancer might want to walk away from the brie, the butter and the black cherry (and every other flavor) ice cream.

According to a study of 1,893 women, breast cancer survivors who average as little as one serving per day of high-fat dairy foods have a 49 percent higher risk of dying from breast cancer than those who eat little or no high-fat dairy.

In absolute terms, breast cancer survivors who consumed the most high-fat dairy had about a 12 percent risk of dying of the disease.

By 2030, Obesity Rates Could Top 60% in 13 States

America’s weight report card is in. The grades aren’t good, and they’re on a path to get much worse.

Mississippi had the highest rate, with 34.9% of its residents obese, defined as a body mass index or BMI of 30 or more.

Colorado has the lowest obesity rate, with 20.7% of residents obese. However, by 2030, 13 states could have obesity rates topping 60%, according to the report’s predictions.

"If we stay on the current course, we could see obesity rates that are already unacceptable double in some states."

Cutting Down On Red Meat Shrinks Carbon Footprint

Minimizing the consumption of red and processed meat would not only lower the incidence of heart disease, diabetes, and bowel cancer by three to 12 percent, but also shrink the carbon footprint by 28 million tonnes a year, new research suggests.

Previously published evidence shows that the risks of coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and bowel cancer rise by 42 percent, 19 percent and 18 percent respectively, with every additional 50 grams of red and processed meat eaten daily.
