The Milk Diet: Lose weight, but increase your cancer risk

People impressed by the milk-only diet adopted by one obese man, who shed 70kg (11 stone) in a year, may want to think twice before they try it

People impressed by the milk-only diet adopted by one obese man, who shed 70kg (11 stone) in a year, may want to think twice before they try it. Taxi driver Adrian Webb weighed 280kg (44 stone) when he was approved for a special diet, which involved drinking 3 litres (5 pints) of milk every day, and no solids.

"I used food as an emotional crutch, but I have a totally different mindset now," he has told newspapers.

But the diet also dramatically increases the chances of developing colorectal cancer. A new study, based on 65 years of follow-up, has discovered that a diet rich in dairy products almost triples the chances of developing the cancer. The risk remained the same, even if the dairy-rich diet was supplemented by fruit and vegetables.
