Dairy products related to prostate cancer

A new study found that men who like to drink milk, ice cream and cheese have a higher risk of prostate cancer than men who do not like these dairy products at the same age.

The study conducted a 11-year follow-up survey of 21,000 men and found that those men who consumed more than 600 mg of calcium per day from dairy products had a higher risk of prostate cancer than those who consumed less than 150 mg per day. It is 32% higher. An additional 500 mg of calcium per day is added, and the corresponding risk of prostate cancer is also increased by 16%. A large daily intake of calcium (especially obtained through dairy products) can inhibit the level of vitamin D in the blood. In addition to being an important nutrient, vitamin D is a hormone that can prevent the proliferation of prostate tumor cells and has never been used to prevent prostate tumors.

This finding confirms the original view that there is a link between high levels of dairy intake and prostate tumors. However, this phenomenon may not be suitable for everyone. Researchers believe that the daily diet should meet the amount of calcium the body needs. This is a basic problem, and not everyone can have enough calcium intake to meet their needs. Before the health department makes recommendations on men and calcium intake, further studies are needed to determine the role of vitamin D in suppressing prostate cancer risk and the mechanisms by which calcium affects its occurrence. Although researchers need to conduct further studies to determine this result, men's calcium supplements need to be reassessed, perhaps they can discuss their own risk with the doctor.
