Are Big Feet Related to Breast Cancer?

Posted Jun 18 2009 1:51pm

 

Women with bigger feet (the average UK shoe size is a five), trunk and shoulder breadth in childhood had a greater risk of breast cancer, according to a study at Bristol University.

An increased foot size might be linked to greater calorie intake during childhood, which has been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer.

Dr. Nirenberg’s Comments:

This is one of those interesting, but probably useless facts. At best, it may mean that women with large feet should have more mamograms.
