Evidence for an association of dietary flavonoid intake with breast cancer risk by estrogen receptor status is limited.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Results from preclinical studies suggest that flavonoids, which are ubiquitous in plant-based diets, lower breast cancer risk. Epidemiologic studies of flavonoid intake and breast cancer risk, however, are limited, and few investigated associations with the more aggressive estrogen receptor (ER)-negative (ER-) tumors. OBJECTIVE We examined the… (More)
