Campbell also shares the findings from a Canadian study, which shows a clear correlation between total fat intake and breast cancer deaths

  • Netherlands, Denmark, UK and New Zealand show the highest fat intake and the most number of deaths due to breast cancer.
  • Conversely, countries like Thailand, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Japan show the lowest fat intake and the least number of deaths due to breast cancer.
  • Further, the correlation between fat intake and breast cancer deaths was even stronger when animal fat was considered and much more diffused when plant fat was considered.
