The Habit Teen Girls Should AVOID to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk Later in Life

  • Scientists carried out a study on mice to assess the impact of fast food on girls
  • Unhealthy foods contain proteins that lead to the formation of abnormal breast cells in rodents

A teenage preference for burgers, fries and shakes can sow breast seeds cancer later in life.

A diet high in sugar, carbohydrates, and processed meats and foods is known to increase levels of inflammation in the body, which increases the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Now, a study has shown that it can be particularly harmful for teenage girls to indulge in such a diet when they are going through puberty and their breasts are developing.

Scientists at the Medical University of South Carolina have discovered that junk and fast food contain high concentrations of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which can cause changes in the breasts similar to those seen in patients with of breast cancer, such as increased breast density.

More than 264,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. It is the most common cancer among women in the United States, with more than 43,000 deaths each year.

Adolescence is when most breast growth occurs. Dr. Steven Quay, a Seattle-based physician-scientist who was not involved in the study, said that “environmental assaults during this vulnerable time can create changes that will take decades.”

The rodent study, published in the journal Breast Cancer Research, saw scientists produce AGEs by cooking glucose-based rodent food at 248 degrees Fahrenheit (120 degrees Celsius) for 15 minutes.

This stimulated the formation of a broad spectrum of EFAs typically found in fried or grilled foods.

EFAs are harmful compounds formed when proteins or fats combine with sugar in the blood.

The puberty mice were divided into three groups: a control group fed a regular mouse diet, a group with a low AGE diet, and a group with a high AGE diet.

As for the effect on breast structure in mice, the EFA-rich diet led to changes in breast tissue, similar to changes seen in patients with very early-stage breast cancer.

This included a change that, in men, results in increased breast density.

In men, increased breast density can only be identified using a mammogram.

Only mice fed the diet rich in AGEs produced abnormal mammary cells.

Scientists still don’t know exactly why dense breast tissue is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer.

Dense breast tissue is thought to contain more cells that can develop into abnormal cells, and in women, abnormal breast cells increase the risk of breast cancer.

The study does not prove a causal link between foods high in EFAs and breast cancer, but does show that eating a lot of processed fast foods may increase the likelihood of developing dense breast tissue, which increases the future risk of breast cancer.

Dr Quay called for guidelines to be developed recommending a diet low in processed foods for adolescent girls to reduce the risk of breast cancer in the future.

There are many other reasons why a person may be diagnosed with breast cancer, including genetic factors.

Men can also get breast cancer, although research has not examined the diets of older people or the risk of breast cancer in men.

More than 264,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. It is the most common cancer among women in the United States, with more than 43,000 deaths each year.
