Interesting study. The study was funded by the World Cancer Research Fund and Kelloggs. I'm particularly fascinated that it seems to affect younger women more. It is looking like high fiber is the way to go. We know that it has many other benefits.

A breakfast bowl of muesli, wholemeal sandwiches at lunch and fruit in the evening could halve a woman's risk of developing breast cancer.
Researchers have found that younger women who eat a high-fibre diet appear to be protected against the disease - at least until the menopause.
A study of 35,000 women over seven years found those with the highest fibre intake of 30 grams a day had a 50 per cent lower incidence of breast cancer than those eating 20 grams a day. But the effect was only seen in pre-menopausal women up to the age of about 50. In post-menopausal women, a high-fibre diet offered no protection.
Professor Janet Cade of the University of Leeds, who led the study, said she had been "surprised" at the strength of the association but was confident it revealed a genuine link.
