Diet and Breast Cancer: Increased Risk with Weight Gain
Among post-menopausal women, the age group most susceptible to breast cancer, the evidence continues to implicate weight gain as a risk factor for breast cancer.
In one recent study, obese women in their post-childbearing years had a 3.2 times greater chance of getting breast cancer than women of a healthy weight. The researchers took into account several other factors that affect breast cancer risk, including a woman’s age, age at menopause, family history of breast cancer, and history of childbearing.
In the video below, BistroMD's founding physician, Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., explains the relationship between breast cancer and your diet, and how eating the right foods can help reduce your risk.
