Hold the Fries

A recent U.S. study, conducted by Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and Harvard Medical School, has found that female children who consume French fries as a regular part of their diets have a much higher risk of developing breast cancer as adults.


Dr. Karin Michels says that her study serves up more evidence that a female's eating habits will greatly predispose her to breast cancer and other diseases later in life.


The U.S. study found that when female children between the ages of 3 to 5 years-old consumed one additional serving of French fries per week, their risk of developing breast cancer later increased by 27 percent.


While previous research has already linked high-fat diets with breast cancer development, Michels states that her study provides additional support that breast cancer may originate during childhood. Therefore, maintaining healthy eating habits as a child is a vital defense against breast cancer.
