How to prevent breast cancer
Health experts said that there is no perfect diet to reduce the risk of cancer, but that does not mean not to focus on achieving the right balance in the daily diet.

Dr Hannah Moody, head of science at Breast Cancer UK, says: 'You should prefer fruit and non-starchy vegetables, such as broccoli, celery, zucchini or aubergine, whole grains and oily fish, and limit saturated fats, added sugar and salt.'

She added: “Research published in the journal Advances in Nutrition, in January 2024, showed that eating foods that contain a high percentage of carotenoids, such as red peppers, watermelon, and pumpkin, reduces the risk of breast cancer.”

In addition, you should limit your intake of processed meat and eat more nuts and whole grains, as Moody explains: “They are rich in fiber, and are associated with a lower risk of breast cancer when eaten in large quantities.” 

She also suggests: "Add a tablespoon of flax seeds to your oatmeal. And be sure to drink plenty of fluids to allow the fiber to work effectively."

Moody referred to weight gain and its relationship to the risk of breast cancer, especially after menopause, and said: “Being obese after menopause means that the risk of breast cancer increases by about 30%, according to a huge study in the United Kingdom. Fat cells can also release a hormone "It's called leptin, which increases the risk."

The amount of physical activity you engage in plays a role in weight control, as more activity helps keep your weight under control.

Moody says: “Being physically active can help treat many different conditions, and can help reduce the risk of breast cancer by approximately 20%.”

She also warns: “About 8% of breast cancer cases are associated with alcohol consumption, and there is no safe limit for drinking alcohol associated with the risk of developing this type of cancer.”
