Doctors Recommend FDA To Add Breast Cancer Warning Label On Cheese Products: Breast cancer mortality rate is high both in developed and developing countries.
Honoring the month of Breast Cancer Awareness, nearly 12000 doctors, along with a non-profit, recommend the Food and Drug Administration to affix the warning label on the cheese products stating, “Diary Cheese contains hormones that may increase breast cancer “.
The demand for breast cancer warning labels has been submitted to the FDA at the beginning of breast cancer awareness programme month on 3rd, October, 2019.
High-fat dairy products pose an increased risk of breast cancer mortality in women all over the world. The Estrogen hormone present in the dairy product such as milk, cheese is biologically active with more concentration; Dairy, when consumed at a higher rate, causes breast cancer mortality risk.

Instead of pink ribbon, non-profit with doctors demands an open awareness of sticking warning labels with a message on cheese products to reduce the mortality risk among women from 2019, says Neal Barnard, President of Physician Committee for Responsible Medicine.
The Committee petition also in need of permanent warning notice on the package of products to the FDA for creating consciousness of women about the risk of death by consuming high-fat dairy products.
