This study assessed the relationship of dietary fat and carbohydrate with the risk of breast cancer. 2569 women with breast cancer (average age 55 years) and 2588 control women (maverage age 56 years) in hospital with other non cancerous diseases completed a validated food-frequency questionnaire
The study found:
(a) Women with the lowest intake of dietary fat had a 19% higher incidence of breast cancer
(b) Women with the highest intake of carbohydrate had a 30% higher incidence of breast cancer than women with the lowest intake of carbohydrate.
Recipe of the day
|Food Mall: Eggs|
◦1 T sugar
◦1 t baking soda
◦1 t baking powder
◦1 t vanilla
Blend all the ingredients in your blender. Set your cast iron pan or griddle on medium heat and melt some lard. Ladle the batter into whatever size you’d like–coin, silver dollar, big ol’ fatties. Once tiny, little bubbles form around the edges of the pancake, it’s ready to flip.
