Cheddar and Creme Cheese Could Raise the Risk of Getting Breast Cancer

Eating too much cheese may raise your risk of getting breast cancer by more than 50 per cent. Cheddar and cream cheese in particular could increase the danger, a study of women’s diets found. Dairy, with the exception of yoghurt, has been linked to the disease because it contains a growth hormone called IGF-1, thought to turn good cells into malignant ones and encourage breast cancer growth.
