Lifestyle, hormones, and risk of breast cancer
This is an interesting viewpoint in risk of breast cancer. It is nice to see an article that does not mention mammograms as a preventative measure for breast cancer (it is not in any way, shape or form…). It does relate caloric intake to the risk of breast cancer. Lower caloric intake will result in impaired ovarian function which in turn will lower risk of breast cancer. Remember from previous updates that caloric restriction is the most consistent and predictable way to prolong lifespan. This may be one possible mechanism by which this occurs.
