In order to investigate the possible role of dieta-ry factors on the
recent increase in mortality for female breast cancer in Korea, an ecologic
correlation study between per capita intakes of nutrients and foods and the
mortality for female breast cancer during the last 10 years was conducted. In
spite of the possibility of an ecologic fallacy, the age-adjusted mortality rates for
female breast cancer were positively correlated with protein from animal source,
total lipid, total animal foods, animal foods to total intake, fresh fish and
shellfish, milk and milk products, and meat and meat products. The rates were
inversely associated with energy from cereal, total carbohydrate, vegetable foods
to total intake, total vegetable foods, daily intake of cereals and grain products,
and starch and starch roots. These results suggest that an increased intake of
protein- and fat-rich foods rather than carbohydrate-rich foods or vegetables
might be associated with the increase in mortality for breast cancer during the
last 10 years in Korea.
