New evidence on dairy and prostate cancer link
new study published in the International Journal of Cancer suggests that
as consumption of dairy products or overall dietary calcium intake
increased, risk for prostate cancer increased. Men who consumed the most
dietary calcium (greater than 2,000 mg per day) had a 63 percent greater
risk, compared with those getting less than 1,000 mg per day.
new study sheds evidence that a principal reason may be dairy calcium.
Excess dietary calcium inhibits activation of vitamin D in the body;
vitamin D is essential for prostate health. Even though milk products in
the U.S. are fortified with vitamin D, their large calcium load tends to
block vitamin D activation in the body.
