Study: Fiber Consumption Significantly Decreases Breast Cancer Risk

New study findings show that consuming more fiber in your diet decreases a woman’s risk of breast cancer.  And the more fiber consumed, the lower the risk, according to this report in the Globe and Mail:

The study, published online in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, pooled the results of 10 studies involving more than 700,000 women. Over all, women who consumed the most versus the least fibre were significantly less likely to develop breast cancer.

The results are quantified for everyday use:

For every 10-gram increase in daily fiber – the amount in slightly less than a 1/2 cup of bran cereal – was associated with a 7-percent reduction in risk.
