Thank you again. With regards dairy I am vegan for ethical reasons so would not go back to dairy also I previously had estrogen postive breast cancer so avoid it due to its estrogenic properties. What actually is it in dairy that protects though? Are you talking about calcium? If so I do take multi-vits and also have non-dairy milk and yoghurt which has been fortified. Plus eat a lot of leafy green veg, tofu and other sources of calcium. I know all my levels are fine on that score as get my blood tests every 4-6 months. Luckily all is okay with my liver so doctor wants to keep me on the 100mg low dose that I am on just in the meantime.
