An Evaluation of Dietary Fibers for the Prevention of Mammary Cancer in Female Rats

Recently passed laws have allowed food industries to label products containing added fiber with health claims. This proposed study will identify which type (and dietary level) of fiber would be of potential benefit for preventing or reducing breast cancer in women. The study will also provide FDA a scientific basis for making regulatory decisions concerning health-effect labels on fiber-rich products.
