TITLE: Milk Intake in Early Life and Risk of Advanced Prostate Cancer.

AUTHORS: Torfadottir JE,

SUBJECTS: In 2002-2006, a subgroup of 2,268 participants reported their milk intake in early, mid-, and current life. During a mean follow-up period of 24.3 years, 1,123 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, including 371 with advanced disease (stage 3 or higher or prostate cancer death).

CONCLUSION: "Daily milk consumption in adolescence (vs. less than daily) ... was associated with a 3.2-fold risk of advanced prostate cancer. These data suggest that frequent milk intake in adolescence increases risk of advanced prostate cancer."
