UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — A team of scientists from the University of Illinois conducted a study whose results showed that the free radicals of fatty acids in the blood help the growth and proliferation of breast cancer cells, which explains why it increases the risk of having it after menopause.
The researchers analyzed blood samples from a group of postmenopausal women, of whom 37 were moderately overweight, 63 were obese, and 21 were at the beginning of the study overweight, but lost the increase.
The results of the analysis showed that the level of free acids was high in obese women, but decreased during the process of weight loss.
During the study, the researchers added the blood they took from obese women and added it to the positive breast cancer plantation. Cancer tissue became more active and grew rapidly, because fatty acids stimulated signal pathways with the participation of a group of “mTOR” proteins that help the growth and proliferation of cancer cells.
Breast cancer is the most common among women, with an annual incidence of 800,000 to 1 million worldwide.
