Patient discussion about cheese

Q. I take lots of cheese and other dairy products and even I like them a lot,it does worry me on my consumption.

I take lots of cheese and other dairy products and even I like them a lot, it does worry me on my consumption of dairy.

A. A vegan diet is found good for breast cancer patients, rather for all cancers. It’s hard to separate out which foodstuffs might influence cancer to develop or grow. The idea behind a dairy-free diet for breast cancer is that a diet low in animal protein will be low in essential amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. A diet low in essential amino acids has been shown to reduce levels of a growth factor called IGF-1 (insulin-like growth-factor-1) in the bloodstream. This might be important, as women with low levels of IGF-1 are at a lower risk of developing some types of cancer, including breast cancer.
