Dairy products and breast cancer?


Question from Sandy: Are there any issues with dairy products and breast cancer and if so, is any research being done?
Answers - Eric Winer, M.D. I personally do not think there are any issues with dairy products and breast cancer.
Marisa Weiss There are some concerns about dairy products from animals that are treated with hormones to increase their milk production. We don't yet have research on this important concern. In the meantime, you can choose organic sources of dairy products in order to avoid this potential exposure.
