Nikunj Sharma | Shazia Rashid 
Abstract: Most recent research for breast cancer is being conducted on the basis of lifestyle and supplementary diet. The abnormal and unlimited differentiation of cells leads to a deadly disease known as cancer. Everyone is so familiar with word cancer because each one of us will explore cancer patient in their family or close relations. Lipids are the naturally occurring organic bio-molecule containing diverse range of compounds which play important role at cellular role including signaling and hormone regulation. Fats are the major regulators of cancer metabolism and progression in breast cancer. Findings from literature studies has also confirmed that occurrence of cancer is generally depended on the type of lipid you consumed instead of amount of lipid consumed. There are number of major switches which control the progression and proliferation of breast cancer. Omega-3 fatty acids are cancer inhibitor whereas omega-6 and saturated fatty acids are cancer promoters. Hence there is a need to find the exact amount of fat required by the body to fight and control cancer progression further. This article deals with current studies on lipids, its metabolism and its connection with cancer progression and inhibition.
