Meta-analyses of lignans and enterolignans in relation to breast cancer risk. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20463043 RESULTS: We included 21 studies (11 prospective cohort studies and 10 case-control studies) in the meta-analyses. Lignan exposure was not associated with an overall breast cancer risk (RE: 0.92; 95% CI: 0.81, 1.02; P(heterogeneity) = 0.004). However, in postmenopausal women, high lignan intake was associated with a significant reduced risk of breast cancer (13 studies; RE: 0.86; 95% CI: 0.78, 0.94; P(heterogeneity) = 0.32). Breast cancer risk was also inversely associated with enterolignan exposure (4 studies; RE: 0.84; […]

The study, published in the journal Clinical […]
