Breast Cancer Epidemic in Nigeria

Brecan, Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria, reports the good work of raising awareness through workshops and adds ( ):

''Healthy breakfast was taken after the health talk. This was made up of tea/coffee with bread and butter, slice of cake, an egg, a glass of fruit juice (which was made up of watermelon, pineapple and banana) and water.'

They report that the rates of the cancer have increased 25% since the 1980s!

A simple Google search for 'breast cancer, butter' will show that there is research evidence that high fat foods are not recommended for breast cancer patients, especially butter, milk (especially the 'cream' that we call milk in Nigeria), white bread (almost the only type found in Naija) maybe fruit juices of the sugary type you have in Nigeria, possibly the kind of tea and coffee loaded with sugar and cream, plus a piece of cake (for a 'healthy' breakfast)!

See research reports of case studies from a Tanzania and other parts of the world:
