High-fiber diets and reduced risk of breast cancer.
In a case-control study of 451 women with breast cancer and 451 population-based controls from metropolitan Adelaide, Australia, the risk of breast cancer was studied in relation to intake of dietary fiber and various fiber components.
Intakes were estimated by means of a self-administered quantitative food-frequency questionnaire, and risks of breast cancer were estimated for each quintile of fiber density (intake/megaJoule of total energy intake) relative to an arbitrarily assigned risk of unity for women in the lowest quintile of fiber density.
There were highly significant reductions in relative risk associated with increasing intake of a number of components of total dietary fiber.
