One Iowa cancer expert would rather see people ignore a new study that finds no link between breast cancer and diet. After studying the eating habits of 89-thousand women since 1980, the Harvard research found NO evidence a high-fat diet promotes breast cancer or that a low-fat diet can prevent it. Lyn Kinseth, a nursing specialist at the Mercy Cancer Center in Des Moines, says there may not be evidence to support eating right, but it makes sense to continue doing so. The study contained a few surprising twists, like thewomen who ate the least amount of fat had a 15-percent HIGHER rate of getting breast cancer. Kinseth says 190-thousand American women will bediagnosed with breast cancer this year and 14-thousand will die from it.
