Background/Aim: The association of dietary patterns representing multiple dietary components and breast cancer risk is not clearly understood. Our objective was to conduct a systematic review of the association between dietary patterns and breast cancer risk. Materials and Methods: The original articles included, were published between January 2013 and May 2017 and characterized diets using a priori and posteriori approaches to examine associations between dietary patterns and breast cancer… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Dietary Patterns and Breast Cancer Risk in Black Urban South African Women: The SABC Study
TLDR
The results of this study show that a traditional dietary pattern and a cereal-dairy breakfast dietary pattern may reduce the risk of developing breast cancer in this population.
Dietary patterns and cancer risk
TLDR
The epidemiology literature linking data-driven and investigator-defined dietary patterns to cancer risk is summarized, providing expert appraisal of new developments in the field and highlighting both emerging mechanistic insights and key areas for future research.
Low-Fat Dietary Modification and Risk of Ductal Carcinoma In Situ of the Breast in the Women's Health Initiative Dietary Modification Trial
TLDR
Dairy modification aiming to reduce fat intake was not associated with altered risk of DCIS among postmenopausal women and no associations were found in subgroups defined by potential risk factors for DCIS.
Association Between Dietary Patterns and Plasma Lipid Biomarker and Female Breast Cancer Risk: Comparison of Latent Class Analysis (LCA) and Factor Analysis (FA)
TLDR
Factor analysis is useful for understanding which foods are consumed in combination and for studying the associations with biomarkers, while LCA is useful in classifying individuals into mutually exclusive subgroups and compares the disease risk between the groups.
Dietary Patterns and Breast Cancer Risk: A Multi-Centre Case Control Study among North Indian Women
TLDR
Investigating the association between Indian dietary patterns and breast cancer risk in a multi-centre case-control study conducted in the North Indian states of Punjab and Haryana found that lacto-ovo-vegetarians had a lower risk of breast cancer compared to both non-vegarians and lacto/vegetarian peers.
Lipid Intake and Breast Cancer Risk: Is There a Link? A New Focus and Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
There was a weak association between high SFA consumption and breast cancer risk in post-menopausal women, however there was high heterogeneity for this analysis.
The association between plant-based dietary patterns and risk of breast cancer: a case–control study
TLDR
Greater adherence to PDI and h PDI was inversely associated with the risk of BC, whereas uPDI was associated with an increased risk.
Dietary Risk with Other Risk Factors of Breast Cancer
TLDR
High fat-low fiber diet is the most important risk factor for breast cancer in women, and a statistically significant association was found with consumption of red meat, fatty food consumption, and bad dietary habit.
Evidence Update on the Relationship between Diet and the Most Common Cancers from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) Study: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Adherence to the Mediterranean diet emerged as a protective factor for colorectal and breast cancer and the EPIC study results are in agreement with the latest evidence from leading authorities on cancer prevention.
Diet-Driven Inflammation and Insulinemia and Risk of Interval Breast Cancer.
TLDR
It is suggested that diet-driven inflammation or insulinemia may not be substantially associated with IBC risk among postmenopausal women, and modifiable factors for IBC prevention are warranted.

Dietary patterns and breast cancer risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The results of this systematic review and meta-analysis indicate that some dietary patterns may be associated with breast cancer risk.
Breast cancer and dietary patterns: a systematic review.
TLDR
The findings of these studies suggest the Mediterranean dietary pattern and diets composed largely of vegetables, fruit, fish, and soy are associated with a decreased risk of breast cancer.
Dietary patterns and breast cancer risk: a study in 2 cohorts.
TLDR
Adherence to a plant-based diet that limits red meat intake may be associated with reduced risk of breast cancer, particularly in postmenopausal women.
Dietary patterns and breast cancer risk in a prospective Japanese study
TLDR
No significant association was found between the vegetable and dairy product dietary patterns and breast cancer risk; however, an animal product diet may reduce risk of breast cancer among premenopausal Japanese women.
Dietary patterns and the risk of female breast cancer among participants of the Canadian National Enhanced Cancer Surveillance System
TLDR
It is revealed that individual dietary items tend to cluster together in such a way that there are three distinct dietary patterns in this sample of Canadian women that were associated with the risk of breast cancer.
Dietary patterns and breast cancer risk among women
TLDR
A healthy dietary pattern may be negatively associated with breast cancer risk, while an unhealthy dietary pattern is likely to increase the risk among Iranian women.
Dietary patterns derived with multiple methods from food diaries and breast cancer risk in the UK Dietary Cohort Consortium
TLDR
A ‘high-alcohol’ dietary pattern derived with RRR was associated with an increased breast cancer risk; no evidence of associations of other dietary patterns with Breast cancer risk was observed in this study.
Dietary patterns and breast cancer risk in the California Teachers Study cohort.
TLDR
The finding that greater consumption of a plant-based dietary pattern is associated with a reduced breast cancer risk, particularly for ER-PR- tumors, offers a potential avenue for prevention.
Dietary patterns and breast cancer: a review with focus on methodological issues.
TLDR
A meaningful assessment of the association between dietary patterns and breast cancer still calls for extra effort to refine the statistical techniques and to address the issue of reproducibility of dietary patterns.
