Here are some dietary habits to avoid, as they may increase the risk of breast cancer(from dr.weil.com):
- Eating too much fat. Keep your dietary fat content low - below 25 percent of your daily calories is ideal.
- Consuming animal fats, polyunsaturated fats (including many vegetable oils), and hydrogenated oils (margarine, and vegetable shortenings) can all increase cancer risks. Minimize consumption of all.
- Drinking alcohol. Even in modest amounts, alcohol consumption is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.
- A daily intake of conventionally raised meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products. Replace with organic, hormone-free versions and use sparingly.
