About Breast Cancer

Nearly 270,000 new cases of breast cancer, most of which are women, are expected in 2020, with a total of nearly 42,000 deaths from the disease.[1]

Aside from skin cancer, it is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the 2nd leading cause of cancer death among women.

Both the occurrence and death due to breast cancer have declined somewhat in recent years, largely due to a decline in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) [use among postmenopausal women.

Breast cancer is significantly influenced by dietary and lifestyle factors, in part evidenced by the nearly 3-fold higher occurrence in developed countries compared to underdeveloped ones.[2]


STAY ACTIVE Most studies suggest physical activity lowers breast cancer mortality.[3]

A number of risk factors are known to be associated with breast cancer occurrence, and the risk factors for younger women are not necessarily the same for women over 40.

Among the most well-established risk factors include:

  • a history of cancer in your family, particularly a first degree relative
  • having dense breast tissue

Risk factors for younger women also include:

  • current oral contraceptive use
  • not having a child until after age 30
  • having a prior benign breast biopsy[4]

Other known risk factors include:

  • alcohol intake
  • smoking
  • higher amounts of dietary fat
  • high percentage of body fat

HEALTHY DIET Consume a vegetable rich, Mediterranean-style diet, emphasizing whole foods and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, brussel sprouts, etc.)[5]

Mammography – Screening by mammography is recommended by a number of cancer organizations. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends individualized, informed decision making about when to start mammography.

Cancer staging and classification  Staging is the process of finding out how much cancer there is in a person’s body and where it’s located. It’s how the doctor learns the stage of a person’s cancer. Physical exams, imaging procedures, laboratory tests, pathology reports, and surgical reports provide information to determine the stage of a cancer.

Genetic evaluation – Genetic evaluation may be recommended, as a number of genetic mutations have been associated with prognosis (outlook) and help to predict how beneficial different treatments may be.

Vitamin D level – Vitamin D levels have been found to be predictive of breast cancer risk and higher grade tumors.[6][7]

RELAX Practice mindfulness-based stress reduction, like breathing techniques, yoga, Pilates and meditation.[8]

  • Suggested dose: 2-4 capsules per day before the meal.

DIM & Isothiocyanates
Isothiocyanates, which are abundant in cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage, have shown anti-tumor activity and DIM (3,3′-Diindolylmethane), also found in these same vegetables, inhibits cancer cell proliferation in estrogen receptor positive and negative cells, and has shifted urinary estrogen metabolites to those with lower cancer risk among cancer survivors.[9],[10],[11]

 Suggested dose: DIM 250 mg & Isothiocyanates 600 mcg per day

Vitamin D
Vitamin D levels are associated with both the risk of breast cancer, as well as the risk of dying from it. Suggested dose is that sufficient to raise vitamin D blood levels to >40 ng/mL, which may require 5000 IU per day or more.[6]

Suggested dose: May require 5,000 IU per day or more, depending on blood levels.

This antioxidant has been shown to influence the methylation of genes in women at high breast cancer risk, and to reduce the toxicity of radiation therapy.*[19],[20]

Suggested dose: 100-200 mg per day

Quercetin with Bromelain
This antioxidant has multiple mechanisms by which it inhibits breast cancer proliferation and induces apoptosis (programmed cell death), and alters the metabolism of estrogen to less toxic compounds.[23],[24] It may be particularly beneficial for Her2/neu positive cancer.[25]

Suggested dose: 200-400 mg three times per day

Multiple nutritional supplements have been associated with reduced cancer occurrence and/or cancer progression. This list contains those with the greatest evidence-base and benefit.
