Studies have shown that the highest risk of breast cancer occurs in girls who as teenagers, were tall, thin and had a significant growth spurt during puberty. Breast cancer has increased worldwide and this could be due to the fact that dietary changes have elicited greater growth spurts during the teenage years. One of the biggest dietary factors causing this growth spurt is possibly milk. For example, the Japanese adoption of a Western diet resulted in a 15cm average height increase in 12 year old girls. The diagnosis of breast cancer has doubled in this generation of girls.
