New evidence on dairy and prostate cancer link

A 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.

The 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.
