High Cholesterol Level Could Make Breast Cancer More Malignant

Cancer patients, especially breast cancer should pay attention to their cholesterol levels. Research shows that a byproduct of cholesterol to function similar to the hormone estrogen that can make cancer cells more rapidly evolving.

Researchers from Duke Cancer Institute conducted a study on mice to unravel the link between tumor cells and cholesterol. The study also reveals that lowering cholesterol can inhibit the growth of cancer cells and prevent breast cancer.

"There are many studies that show a link between obesity and breast cancer. Especially they know that the increase in cholesterol levels associated with increased risk of breast cancer. Yet researchers have not found the explanation," said senior investigator Donald McDonnell, PhD, as reported by Science Daily (28/11).

Investigators later revealed that cholesterol is not a problem, but a byproduct of cholesterol called 27HC. These substances resemble the hormone estrogen and can cause the growth of breast cancer cells.

From the results of this study reveal that McDonnell one powerful way to prevent breast cancer and prevent cancer cells to continue to grow is to keep your cholesterol levels. Furthermore, researchers will conduct further studies to see whether cholesterol also affects the growth of other cancer cells.
