Dr. Cederquist explains the link between your diet and risk of breast cancer.


Diets and The Risk for Breast Cancer

Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., explains the link between women's diets and their risk for breast cancer. According to multiple studies, women who had higher intakes of red meats had a significantly higher risk of developing breast cancer. Learn more about your risk of breast cancer and how changing your diet can lower that risk.


Red Meat May Release Carcinogens

When red meat is cooked at high temperatures it may release carcinogens that interact with estrogen and lead to breast cancer. Particularly, women with a high intake of red meat and a low intake of fruits and vegetables had the highest risk. This may be due to the phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables, which are believed to fight off carcinogens released from red meats. BistroMD meals have high amounts of fruits, vegetables, poultry, and fish. Consuming these items and reducing red meat intake could lower your risk of breast cancer.
