6 on Health: Study shows Mediterranean diet reduces risk of certain kind of breast cancer

The Mediterranean diet can reduce the risk of a certain kind of breast cancer, according to a new study.

The Mediterranean diet, which consists of a colorful array of fruits, nuts, fish, whole grains and vegetables, is known for its health benefits.

Now, it is linked to a lower risk of one of the worst types of breast cancer: Estrogen-receptor-negative breast cancer, which is a post-menopausal form of the disease.

According to the study, researchers found the emergence of estrogen-receptor-negative breast cancer was 40-percent less prevalent if women stuck to a Mediterranean diet.

The research placed a spotlight on the impact that dietary patterns have on the risk of cancer.
