OBJECTIVE A meta-analysis was carried out to summarize published data on the relationship between breast cancer and dietary factors. METHODS Databases in Chinese (China National Knowledge Infrastructure [CNKI], China Biology Medicine [CBM], WanFang, VIP) and in English (PubMed and Web of Science) were searched for articles analyzing vegetable, fruit, soy food and fat consumption and breast cancer risk published through June 30, 2013. Random effects models were used to estimate summary odds…

Breast Cancer Primary Prevention and Diet: An Umbrella Review

Overall, adhering to a healthy eating style may be associated with a significant reduction in the risk of BC, and the evidence is still conflicting as concerns exposure to other dietary elements.

The results of this study suggest that it is more reasonable to control for quality level by performing subgroup analysis according to study design rather than by using HQ based on the NOS quality assessment tool.

Nutritional and environmental risk factors for breast cancer: a case-control study

Higher consumption of ultra-processed food, presence of overweight or obesity, waist circumference ≥88 cm, poor sanitation, and family history of cancer were risk factors for breast cancer in this sample of women living in Rio Grande do Norte state, Brazil.

Roles of Kermanshahi Oil, Animal Fat, Dietary and Non- Dietary Vitamin D and other Nutrients in Increased Risk of Premenopausal Breast Cancer: A Case Control Study in Kermanshah, Iran.

It is suggested that animal fat increases the risk of premenopausal breast cancer but many other dietary and non-dietary factors including calcium and vitamin D deficiency are consistently associated with increased odds of breast cancer in this region.

Dietary fat and obesity as modulators of breast cancer risk: Focus on DNA methylation

This discussion focuses on changes elicited in writers of DNA methylation, which influence BC risk, prognosis, tumour characteristics and response to treatment and a review of well‐vetted BC biomarkers related to cytosine‐guanine dinucleotides methylation.

Effects of isoflavones on breast tissue and the thyroid hormone system in humans: a comprehensive safety evaluation

This review evaluates and summarises the evidence from interventional and observational studies addressing potential unintended effects of isoflavones on the female breast in healthy women as well as in breast cancer patients and on the thyroid hormone system and concludes on the safety of is oflavones are guided by the aim of precautionary consumer protection.

Soy and Breast Cancer: Focus on Angiogenesis

A review of the antiangiogenic properties of soy isoflavonoids examines their possible underlying mechanisms and concludes that genistein possesses pleiotropic molecular mechanisms of action.

Dietary Patterns, Whole Plant Foods, Nutrients and Phytochemicals in Breast Cancer Prevention and Management

Dietary choices including: (1) level of adherence to healthy vs Western dietary patterns; (2) high vs low dietary energy density intake; (3) type and level of dietary fat, fiber and protein consumed;



Dietary fat intake and risk of breast cancer: a case–control study in China

It is suggested that intakes of total fat, saturated and monounsaturated fat, n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fat were not associated with risk of breast cancer, but that polyuns saturated fat decreased the risk.

Intake of fruits and vegetables and risk of breast cancer: a pooled analysis of cohort studies.

The results suggest that fruit and vegetable consumption during adulthood is not significantly associated with reduced breast cancer risk.

  • 2005
Results from a case-control study of diet and risk of breast cancer nested in a randomized trial of breast self exam in Shanghai, China provide additional evidence in support of the important role of fruits and vegetables in breast cancer prevention.

Fat and Protein Intake and Subsequent Breast Cancer Risk in Postmenopausal Women

A significant positive association between total fat and animal protein and risk of breast cancer and an inverse association with carbohydrates is indicated and constitutes new evidence for a role of diet in the etiology of breastcancer.

Dietary carbohydrates, fiber, and breast cancer risk in Chinese women.

The data suggest that a high carbohydrate intake and a diet with a high glycemic load may be associated with breast cancer risk in premenopausal women or women <50 y.

Breast Cancer and Dietary Factors in Taiwanese Women

A strong protective effect of dietary supplements and a harmful effect of Dietary fats on the risk of breast cancer among women in Taiwan is indicated.

Effect of dietary soy intake on breast cancer risk according to menopause and hormone receptor status

The findings suggest that high consumption of soy might be related to lower risk of breast cancer and that the effect of soy intake could vary depending on several factors.

Greater vegetable and fruit intake is associated with a lower risk of breast cancer among Chinese women

Consumption of individual vegetable and fruit groups such as dark green leafy vegetables, cruciferous vegetables, carrots and tomatoes, banana, watermelon/papaya/cantaloupe were all inversely and significantly related with breast cancer risk.

Population-based case–control study of soyfood intake and breast cancer risk in Shanghai

The results suggest that regular soyfood consumption may reduce the risk of breast cancer, particularly for those positive for ER and PR; the effect may be modified by body mass index.

Dietary factors and risk of breast cancer: combined analysis of 12 case-control studies.

A combined analysis of the original data to evaluate the consistency of 12 case-control studies of diet and breast cancer shows a consistent, statistically significant, positive association between breast cancer risk and saturated fat intake in postmenopausal women.
