Can your diet affect your risk of breast cancer?

If you’re at risk for breast cancer, newly diagnosed breast cancer, or metastatic breast cancer, you may be wondering what you can do—beyond treatment and outside of your doctor’s office. — to keep the disease under control. as you go through the process of living your life.

One potential piece of the puzzle if you’re in the mood for a lifestyle change: diet.

It’s hard to draw concrete conclusions about diet and disease because hard studies that prove a correlation between a food and risk are hard to come by. Many studies, for example, are based on people’s recollection of what they have eaten. (If you can’t remember what you ate for breakfast yesterday, you see the problem.)

That said, evidence tends, over time, to accumulate and lead to consensus.
