Purpose of review Breast cancer is the most common female cancer in Western Europe and North America, and becoming an increasing problem in developing countries such as India and China. We review recent studies (published 1 January 2007–31 August 2008) on the impact of diet on breast cancer risk. Recent findings Recent studies have focused on the controversial association for dietary fat and breast cancer as well as the role of newer aspects such as glycemic index, dietary patterns and diet… Expand
Diet, obesity and breast cancer: an update.
TLDR
Healthy dietary patterns, with abstention from alcohol and weight control, reduce the risk of cancer or at least improve the survival of affected women by reducing the incidence of comorbidities. Expand

Fruit, Vegetable, and Animal Food Intake and Breast Cancer Risk by Hormone Receptor Status
TLDR
The results suggest that high intake of total vegetables, certain fruits, milk, and eggs may reduce the risk of breast cancer, whereas high consumption of animal-source foods may increase risk. Expand
Dietary Fat and Breast Cancer in Postmenopausal Women According to Ethnicity and Hormone Receptor Status: The Multiethnic Cohort Study
TLDR
This comprehensive prospective analysis in the MEC does not support a role of adult intake of dietary fat in the etiology of postmenopausal breast cancer. Expand
Systematic review and meta-analysis suggest that dietary cholesterol intake increases risk of breast cancer.
TLDR
Results from this meta-analysis indicated that dietary cholesterol was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Expand
Dietary patterns and the risk of postmenopausal breast cancer in a German case–control study
TLDR
A case–control study on postmenopausal breast cancer risk, including incident breast cancer cases diagnosed between 2002 and 2005 in Germany, did not find an association of a “healthy’ or “unhealthy” dietary pattern with post menopausal Breast cancer risk. Expand
Dietary Patterns and Breast Cancer Risk in Korean Women
TLDR
It is indicated that a diet rich in vegetables and seafood is associated with a decreased breast cancer risk in Korean women. Expand
Nutrition in adult and childhood cancer: role of carcinogens and anti-carcinogens.
TLDR
Data is reviewed focusing on which dietary factors, including food-borne carcinogens, affect the onset of cancers in adults and stress out the potential role of diet in childhood cancer prevention. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that the weekly frequency of dairy intake was inversely associated with the risk of breast cancer among women in Northern and Eastern China. Expand

Diet and breast cancer
TLDR
There is no association that is consistent, strong, and statistically significant, with the exception of alcohol intake, overweight, and weight gain, among the prospective epidemiologic studies conducted on diet and breast cancer incidence and gene‐diet interactions. Expand
High folate intake is associated with lower breast cancer incidence in postmenopausal women in the Malmö Diet and Cancer cohort.
TLDR
A high folate intake was associated with a lower incidence of postmenopausal breast cancer in this cohort of women from the Malmö Diet and Cancer cohort. Expand
Consumption of soy foods and the risk of breast cancer: findings from the Japan Collaborative Cohort (JACC) Study
TLDR
This prospective study suggests that consumption of soy food has no protective effects against breast cancer, and only among postmenopausal women is this suggested. Expand
Dietary patterns and the risk of breast cancer in Japanese women
TLDR
The authors found the prudent dietary pattern to be negatively associated with breast cancer risk and the fatty and Japanese patterns may increase breast cancerrisk among obese women. Expand
Nutrient dietary patterns and the risk of breast and ovarian cancers
TLDR
The starch‐rich pattern is potentially an unfavorable indicator of risk for both breast and ovarian cancers, while the animal products and the vitamins and fiber patterns may be associated with a reduced risk of breast and Ovarian cancers, respectively. Expand
Dietary fat and postmenopausal invasive breast cancer in the National Institutes of Health-AARP Diet and Health Study cohort.
TLDR
In this large prospective cohort with a wide range of fat intake, dietary fat intake was directly associated with the risk of postmenopausal invasive breast cancer. Expand
Plant foods and oestrogen receptor alpha- and beta-defined breast cancer: observations from the Malmo Diet and Cancer cohort.
TLDR
It is suggested that different plant foods may be differently associated with breast cancer, with fibre-rich bread showing an inverse association, while Fried potatoes were statistically significantly associated with increased risk of ERbeta (-) breast cancer. Expand
Dietary Glycemic Load and Breast Cancer Risk in the Women’s Health Study
TLDR
The increase in risk in premenopausal women with low levels of physical activity suggests the possibility that the effects of a high glycemic diet may be modified by lifestyle and hormonal factors. Expand
Dietary phytoestrogens are not associated with risk of overall breast cancer but diets rich in coumestrol are inversely associated with risk of estrogen receptor and progesterone receptor negative breast tumors in Swedish women.
TLDR
It is found that there is no association between intake of isoflavonoids or lignans and breast cancer risk, and the results could be due to chance because of the low intake. Expand
A prospective study of vegetarianism and isoflavone intake in relation to breast cancer risk in British women
TLDR
In a population of British women with heterogeneous diets, in a cohort of 37,643 British women participating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition, there is no evidence for a strong association between vegetarian diets or dietary isoflavone intake and risk for breast cancer.
