Evidence that Substituting Plant-Based Proteins for Animal Foods Can Lower Cancer Risk:

Breast cancer
Meat consumption -- including poultry and fish -- is associated with a significantly higher breast cancer incidence rate.
 Each serving eaten per day on average increases risk by about 30%.
European Journal of Cancer Prevention (17:39-47)

High consumption of dairy products is associated with higher breast cancer incidence. British Journal of Cancer ( 24:[masked])

Prostate cancer
Men who eat the most meat, poultry and dairy products are the most likely to die from prostate cancer, while those who eat the most unrefined plant foods are the least likely to die from this disease. Journal of the National Cancer Institute ( 20:[masked])

Colorectal cancer
People who consume 2 or more servings of dairy products daily have a three times greater risk of developing colorectal cancer compared to people who have consumed little or no dairy products. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition ( 86:[masked])



Ovarian cancer
For each serving of dairy products, including low fat and fat-free ones, which a woman consumes on average each day, her risk of getting the most common, and most deadly, form of ovarian cancer (serous) goes up by 20%. -- Department of Medicine, Harvard University Medical School.
  International Journal of Cancer (110, 2: 271-7)
