Carbohydrate and risk of breast cancer among Mexican women.

High intake of carbohydrates, particularly fructose and sucrose, may increase breast cancer risk in premenopausal and postmenopausal Mexican women.

This study investigated the relationship between the consumption of carbohydrates and the incidence of breast cancer. Using validated food frequency questionnaires, researchers examined the carbohydrate intake of 1,866 Mexican women within the age bracket of 20-75 years. The breast cancer hazard ratio of all the participants in this study was also measured.

Researchers observed a high prevalence of breast cancer among premenopausal and postmenopausal women who consistently consumed high quantities of carbohydrates. Diets rich in fructose and sucrose strongly promoted the development of cancerous cells in the breast, but fatty foods had no significant effect on breast cancer risk in this study. The results of this study provide evidence that increased consumption of diets high in carbohydrates may contribute to the prevalence of breast cancer among Mexican women.
