There are many factors that can affect your risks of getting breast cancer.  These discussed here are just a few.


The American Cancer Society says there is evidence that there is an association between excess weight in post-menapausal women, and breast cancer, according to Colleen Doyle, M.S., R.D., Director of Nutritional Physical Activity for A.C.S..

She does stress that further study is needed to define the source of the connection.


Involving the subject of the benefits of soy foods on reducing risks of breast cancer, Doyle does not believe that soy food helps reduce cancer in general, but stresses that soy is packed with photochemicals and antioxidents.


’”Alcohol seems to increase the risk of breast cancer, particularly if a woman has low levels of folate.  For now, A.M.C. recommends women consume no more than 1 glass of alcohol per day.” (Everyday Health 1/3/11) http://www.cancer.org/Cancer/news/Features/diet-and-breast-cancer-risk-whats-the-connection

Doyle confirms that these studies are controversial.  Studies show that moderate alcohol consumption lowers your risk of heart disease.  You have to evaluate your risk factors.  Is family history higher for heart disease than breast  cancer? This may sway your opinion on whether you choose to drink or not.

Keep updated on breast cancer issues if your family has risk factors.
