Meenakshi Gahlot [3] | Bharti Prakash [4]


Abstract: Endogenous estrogen and other steroid hormones are influenced by the dietary fat and alcohol consumption. Which is directly associated with breast cancer risk. The correlation among dietary fat and alcohol consumption and breast cancer incidences in premenopausal women of Ajmer municipal area has been examined in the present study. A population based study was conducted on 153 premenopausal women of Ajmer municipal area, who had regular menstrual cycle fewer than 40 days apart, having breast cancer and 150 premenopausal women not having breast cancer. Consumption of dietary fat and alcohol were estimated with a validated food frequency questionnaire. In order to create dose response association in premenopausal women, saturated fat Consumption was included as a categorical indicator variable in questionnaire. Logistic regression was used to estimate odd ratio and its 95 percent confidence interval for breast cancer. After taking the characteristics for age, BMI, number of children, breast feeding period, age at menarche, it was found that the saturated fat intake was significantly associated with breast cancer risk in premenopausal women. Alcohol did not show any significant association.
