Four steps in avoiding breast cancer

Limit alcohol

The more alcohol you drink, the greater your risk of developing breast cancer. The general recommendation based on research on the effect of alcohol on breast cancer risk is to limit yourself to less than 1 drink per day as even small amounts increase risk.

Don’t smoke

Accumulating evidence suggests a link between smoking and breast cancer risk, particularly in premenopausal women. In addition, not smoking is one of the best things you can do for your overall health.

Control your weight

Being overweight or obese increases the risk of breast cancer. This is especially true if obesity occurs later in life, particularly after menopause.

Breast-feed

Breast-feeding might play a role in breast cancer prevention. The longer you breast-feed, the greater the protective effect.
