Diet may affect one’s vulnerability to cancer of the inner lining of the uterus, the endometrium.

Poultry, fish, and other meats—especially processed and cured meats—may increase the risk of endometrial cancer. Milk consumption has been associated with an increased risk of endometrial cancer in postmenopausal women. Deep-fried foods such as French fries can contain acrylamide, which is generated when oil is heated; acrylamide intake has been associated with endometrial and other cancers.

Soy intake may decrease the risk of endometrial cancer by up to 30%. Coffee may have a similar, though much smaller, effect.
