Breast cancer recurrence reduced with diet

Invasive breast cancer affects greater than 211,000 women in American each year with many women achieving a cure, but some will develop a recurrence down the track. Post-menopausal women have been found to be at a reduced risk of suffering a recurrence of breast cancer if they adopted a low-fat diet. This is most probably due to fat cells of the body producing estrogens in post-menopausal women which influences the formation of estrogen sensitive breast cancers, more fat equals increased risk.
