Can cause cancer: US doctors require a warning on cheese packages
US doctors urge the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to add breast cancer warning labels to all cheese products.
A group of doctors representing more than 12 000 specialists throughout the United States calls on the FDA to require manufacturers to indicate on the labels of cheese and cheese products about the possible development of breast cancer, writes CBS New York.
“Cheese made from milk of animal origin contains reproductive hormones that can increase the risk of death from breast cancer,” the report of the Committee of Responsible Medicine doctors said in a petition to the FDA on October 3. October is considered the month of breast cancer awareness.
Non-profit research cited by doctors has linked cheese, a high-fat dairy product, with an increased risk of developing breast cancer in patients (not only women but also men).

“Dairy products contain traces of cow's estrogen, and when milk turns into cheese, estrogens become more concentrated. Although these are only traces, they appear to be biologically active in humans and increase mortality from breast cancer, ”the group said in a statement.
The FDA generally opposes the addition of warning labels for food and beverages, including in the case of California, when the state tried to add a cancer warning to coffee packaging.
According to the CDC, in the United States about 245 000 cases of breast cancer in women and 2200 in men are diagnosed annually. Cancer remains the second most common cause of death among women in the United States (after cardiovascular disease), and breast cancer is the most common cancer in women.
