Got milk? No thanks!

If you want to avoid breast cancer, give up dairy products. That’s according to professor Jane Plant, author of Your Life in Your Hands, who battled the so-called “middle-class disease” and won. Professor Plant (quite an apt surname for someone who advocates a non-dairy diet) believes that the link between dairy produce and breast cancer is similar to the link between smoking and lung cancer. (The tobacco industry would likely argue that the smoking link is inconclusive.)

In her book, Prof. Jane Plant: Cure Breast Cancer by Avoiding All Milk Products, she highlights that “only one in 10,000 women in China will die from it [breast cancer], compared to that terrible figure of one in 12 in Britain and the even grimmer average of one in 10 across most Western countries”. Can I count myself fortunate that I’m among 70% of the world’s population who are lactose intolerant?

If you are curious, read also The China Study.

On a separate note, Chinese women may not get breast cancer, but they’ll probably get something else eating the stuff that’s available in China. And that, of course, includes milk.
