Differences in breast cancer incidence rates between most racial/ethnic groups were largely explained by risk factor distribution except in African Americans, however, breast cancers in African American women more commonly had characteristics of poor prognosis, which may contribute to their increased mortality after diagnosis.

Recreational physical activity and the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women: the Women's Health Initiative Cohort Study.
It is suggested that increased physical activity is associated with reduced risk for breast cancer in postmenopausal women, longer duration provides most benefit, and that such activity need not be strenuous. Expand
A Randomized Controlled Trial of Weight Reduction and Exercise for Diabetes Management in Older African-American Subjects
The intervention program was effective in improving glycemic and blood pressure control and may reflect indirect program effects on other aspects of self-care. Expand

Being overweight at age 18 years is associated with a reduced risk of both premenopausal and postmenopausal breast cancer in African American women, according to the findings of the Black Women's Health Study. Expand
Low-fat dietary pattern and risk of invasive breast cancer: the Women's Health Initiative Randomized Controlled Dietary Modification Trial.
Among postmenopausal women, a low-fat dietary pattern did not result in a statistically significant reduction in invasive breast cancer risk over an 8.1-year average follow-up period, and the nonsignificant trends observed indicate that longer, planned, nonintervention follow- up may yield a more definitive comparison.

The association between parity and breast cancer risk differs appreciably for ER+ and triple-negative breast cancers; breastfeeding and oral contraceptive use were not associated with either subtype. Expand
Reproductive factors, hormonal contraception, and risk of uterine leiomyomata in African-American women: a prospective study.
The authors used age- and time-stratified Cox regression models to estimate incidence rate ratios for self-reported uterine leiomyomata, confirmed by ultrasound or hysterectomy, in association with selected reproductive and hormonal factors and found current use of progestin-only injectables was inversely associated with risk.

Leisure time vigorous physical activity was associated with a reduced odds of depressive symptoms in U.S. Black women and walking for exercise was not associated with risk of depressive Symptoms overall, but there was evidence of a weak inverse relation among obese women. Expand
Molecular breast cancer subtypes in premenopausal and postmenopausal African-American women: age-specific prevalence and survival.

The high prevalence of the basal cell-like subtype in the young premenopausal African-American women aged <35 y could be a contributory factor to the poorer prognosis of breast cancer observed in this cohort of patients. Expand
