Washington: A team of researchers at the University of California, Davis, has uncovered striking new evidence suggesting that diet and related factors early in life can boost the risk for breast cancer – totally independent of the body’s production of the hormone estrogen. The findings provide new insights into the processes that regulate normal breast development, which can impact the risk of developing breast cancer later in life. “It’s long been assumed that circulating estrogens from the ovaries, which underlie normal female reproductive development, were crucial for the onset of breast growth and development,” said Russ Hovey, a UC Davis associate professor of animal science and senior author on the study.“Our findings, however, suggest that diet and shifts in body metabolism that parallel changes seen during obesity and Type 2 diabetes can also stimulate breast growth entirely independent of estrogen’s effects,” he said.
