  1. Dietary fat intake and risk of epithelial ovarian cancer.

    Article - En anglais


    Evidence exists that dietary fat may be a contributory factor in the development of hormone-related cancers such as ovarian cancer.

    Previous studies have demonstrated significantly higher circulating-estrogen levels among nonvegetarian women than among vegetarian women ; the increase correlated directly with consumption of saturated fat.

    However, the contribution that dietary fat plays in the development of hormone-related cancers remains unresolved.


    Our purpose was to evaluate whether saturated fat intake increases the risk of ovarian cancer development.


    Population-based sampling was used to acquire cases and controls over a 3-year period from the study area, which included the highly populated region surrounding the western end of Lake Ontario, Canada.
