No, but...: In theory, the blocked fat absorption and oily stools will decrease colon exposure to environmental toxins by hurrying waste through the system (the unpleasant side effect of ally), but other toxins are still present, plus the genetic component, plus other environmental effects (eg. Smoking) so doubtful it will help! can't even guess about breast cancer though...
