Diet and breast cancer

Cholesterol may also play a role in the development and progression of breast cancer, as cancer appears to feed on it. The cancer is thought to be using the cholesterol to make estrogen or to shore up tumor membranes to help the cancer migrate and invade more tissue. In other words, breast tumors may take advantage of high circulating cholesterol levels to fuel and accelerate their own growth.

Consuming less meat and more fruitsvegetables, and fiber, as well as flaxseedssoy foods, and cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli sprouts may reduce breast cancer risk and improve survival chances.
