AUTHORS: Pettersson A, Kasperzyk JL, et. al.
AFFILIATION: Harvard School of Public Health.
"Whether milk and dairy intake after a prostate cancer diagnosis is
associated with a poorer prognosis is unknown. We investigated
post-diagnostic milk and dairy intake in relation to risk of lethal prostate
cancer (metastases and prostate cancer death) among participants in the
Health Professionals Follow-Up Study."
SUBJECTS: "3,918 men diagnosed
with apparently localized prostate cancer between 1986 and 2006."
RESULTS: "Men with the highest versus lowest intake of whole milk were at an
increased risk of progression." (of prostate cancer growth)
