Prevention of Breast Cancer

Prevention: Exercising and eating healthily is the first essential rule


Regular exercise, particularly vigorous exercise, appears to offer protection against breast cancer. Exercise can help reduce body fat, which in turn lowers levels of cancer-promoting hormones such as estrogen. The American Cancer Society recommends engaging in 45 – 60 minutes of physical activity at least 5 days a week.


  • Choose foods and amounts that promote a healthy weight.
  • Eat 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
  • Choose whole grains instead of refined grain products.
  • Limit consumption of processed and red meat.
  • Women should limit alcohol consumption to 1 drink per day
