9 Breast Cancer Prevention Tips
- Avoid gaining too much weight. Obesity increases the risk of breast cancer after menopause when the disease is most prevalent. Maintain a body-mass index of 25 or below to avoid gaining weight over time (calculators can be found online).
- To keep the scale from tipping, eat a nutritious diet. Adopt a diet that is heavy in fruits and vegetables and low in sugary drinks, refined carbs, and greasy foods. Eat fish or chicken breast for a low protein source, and red meat in moderation if at all. Consume entire grains. Vegetable oils are preferable to animal fats.
- Continue to be physically active. Increased physical exercise, even if started later in life, appears to cut overall breast-cancer risk by at least 10%, according to research. This preventive effect can be obtained with only modest activity, such as a 30-minute walk five days a week.
- Drink only a small amount of alcohol, if at all. Consumption of alcoholic beverages has been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. Regardless of the type of alcohol, women should limit themselves to one drink per day.
- Hormone replacement therapy should be avoided. The use of menopausal hormone therapy raises the risk of breast cancer. If you need hormones to control menopausal symptoms, stay away from those that contain progesterone and use them for no more than three years. Hormonal lotions and gels, as well as "bioidentical hormones," are no safer than prescription hormones and should be avoided.
- Take an estrogen-blocking medication. Women over 60 who have a family history of breast cancer should talk to their doctor about the benefits and drawbacks of estrogen-blocking medications like tamoxifen and raloxifene.
- Please don't smoke. Long-term smoking has been linked to an elevated risk of breast cancer in some women, according to research. Do you need assistance stopping smoking? Consider taking part in WebQuit, a Web-based smoking cessation study run by the Hutchinson Center.
- Breastfeed your children for as long as you can. Breast-feeding mothers have a lower risk of developing breast cancer later in life if they breastfeed for at least a year.
- Take part in a research project. Several studies at the Hutchinson Center are looking into ways to lower the incidence of breast cancer. Check our website on a regular basis for studies that might be of interest to you. Simply visit www.fhcrc.org and select "How You Can Help.
