Scientists at the Anzac Research Institute in Sydney have found that milk may be able to help prevent the spread of metastasizing breast cancer cells into bones.

About 70 percent of patients with advanced breast cancer develop secondary tumors in their bones. The researchers compared the spread of cancer in mice fed a low or high calcium diet. The mice with the calcium-deficient diet had “significantly more” cancer cells penetrate the bone.

The findings were reported in the latest edition of Cancer Research. To learn more, go to: http://www.smh.com.au/news/National/Drink-milk-to-prevent-cancer-spread/2007/10/04/1191091259848.html
