Doctors want FDA to Warn Women About Cheese and Breast Cancer Correlation

Thursday, October 17, 2019

I read this article the other day on the internet and it's not the first time I've read warnings about the hormones from cows being in cheese and correlating with breast cancer. I'm a cheeseaholic and wonder if I should cut down on my intake. Does this make you think twice about eating cheese?

Wishing all a fun day.

    I don't eat that much cheese. I can take it or leave it.

    Nutrition information changes on a regular basis. I do not eliminate any foods. I try a more moderate approach to eating. I would not worry about this latest study. I agree with MEADSBAY.

    Hopefully not. We eat a lot of cheese.

    I just want to chime in that I too find many internet articles want to stir you up about things being unhealthy. The more they shock you, the more they have the result that they intended. If you pay attention to all of them there is nothing left to eat.

    I'm not worrying about it. I try not to eat too much cheese as it's so high in calories, but I have never cut it out completely.

    I quit panicking over the latest study a long time ago - stress causes blood pressure to rise! I think the safest thing to do is eat what you feel like (in moderation, of course) and pay attention to your body's reactions!

    Oh, my! We like cheese, too. I've heard about bad stuff getting into our food, too. A friend has says that's why we're fatter because of the stuff they use nowadays.

    Perhaps knowing the source of your cheese might help. I get my goat cheese direct from the farm.

    Every time you turn around, there is someone saying don't eat this, but eat that, then they turn around and say its okay. Unless there is a gold standard meta study of at least 50,000 people done, I don't believe anything I read either. They have flipped around on coffee so much its ridiculous! The best way to go is eat what makes you feel physically good. I like cruciferous veggies, but they don't like my gut so I can't have them even though they are very good for you. I love cheese, but I know if I let it run away from me, it will put the lbs on, so I have it only in moderation.

    I don't eat that much cheese, so it really doesn't affect me.

    It does not change my opinions. It's more horse dookie. They have studies like this as filler every single day on T.V. I don't know any doctors demanding this. This group of doctors is one that is pushing vegetarian diets. That info and singling out cheese with no mention of other high fat dairy products like milk, cream, ice cream, yogurt, etc.or other high fat items in general lets you know it's horse dookie. The bottom line is that they need to get hormones out of everything we eat. And antibiotics. And pesticides. And preservatives. On and on. We don't need any of these items. I will continue to eat cheese like I always have but not live on it. I don't eat it every day and when I eat it I eat a serving. Moderation.

    Agree w/MEADSBAY. . . cross it off the worry list. Moderation, of course, though.

    Wow. and I eat cheese every day. I Used to eat smoked Gouda then found out the smoking process has health risk and now cheese in general?? That would mean dairy in general. I know my mil at 94:had breast cancer and they switched her over to soy milk and she will be 97 soon.

    You have to eat your weight in cheese everyday for a lifetime to get an effect.

    Never heard that so just checked the Komen page...they reviewed 20 different studies and determined there is no definite causal link as some studies showed an increase and some showed a decrease in women who consumed two or more high fat dairy products of any kind.
    Plus, there were diff results for pre and post menopausal women.
    Cross it off your worry list!
